    • Opinions about the Linq?

      Las Vegas Yesterday

      We're planning a trip in late March 2015 and I'm looking for a mid strip place to stay. Stayed at Harrahs some years ago, and don't want to spend the $$$ for Caesar's, The Cromwell, etc. I read an article about how the Linq is much improved over the old Imperial Palace, so I'm interested in opinions from people who have stayed there.

      I am going to Steamboat the 2nd week in January and will need to rent skis, boots, poles and helmet. I know if I want convenience I should stick to the mountain, but it's usually more expensive. Maybe not??? Would appreciate some recommendations, as well as some suggestions for restaurants. Also, which is better for transportation from Hayden airport to Steamboat- Alipine vs. Storm Mountain?

    • Whale watching

      Maui Yesterday

      I'm going to Maui with my family (5 adults) next week. Someone had suggested going whale watching with the Pacific Whale Foundation. I've looked on their website, and they seem to offer a multitude of packages to do the same thing (so it seems).

      Any suggestions or experiences with these whale watching tours? They seem like a fun family activity for a reasonable price.

      I think the rafting option is a no-go, as my mom can't swim and will be scared to death. She'll want the stability of a boat.

      Thanks in advance!

      Good things for kids in KC?

      I'm considering taking my nine year old daughter to KC along with another friend who has a daughter the same age. I've browsed some web articles about children's activities in KC and haven't found them all that enlightening so I thought I would ask the VT community where we can take two little girls. We plan to be there between Christmas and New Year's and spend 2-3 days in the city.

      And thanks to all the VTers who have put out their favorite BBQ joints! o need to ask about that one again!

    • From BUF Airport to Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario

      Buffalo Dec 15, 2014 at 4:14 AM

      Hi everyone, I have always wanted to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario and I guess the day has come now....I know it kinda cold right now this time of winter and thinking to travel when springs comes or summer time. My question is which season are pretty good to visit the Niagara-on-the-Lake....I hope this will be answered by the person who lives there or the person who had seen both season and had good experience. My second question is since I will be coming via a plane to Buffalo Airport and from there I had to take some sort of transportation. Is there any reliable cheaper transportation that takes me straight to the lake? I made a little research and found this website http://buffaloexpresstaxi.com/ claiming that they will provide a sightseeing tour without no waiting charge it sounds pretty good to me but just want to make sure if I have another option. Thank you so much for your relevant information and time.

      I am looking for something special in Providence.

      Providence Sep 15, 2012 at 3:02 AM

      Hi there

      I live in a town called Wroclaw in Poland. I've found something what could be common to our cities. We have a fountain called "Bear Fountain", that was made by a German sculpor Moritz Geyger in 1904. Wroclaw was German and its name was Breslau at that time. Geyger made a copy of the Bear and the copy should be now somewhere in the Brown University in Providence. The Bear sculpture in Providence has a label where you can probably read that the sculpture was made by Geyger and it is a copy of Breslau Bear or something like that.
      If you have time could you check it for me. Thank you.

      Please read my review about it too:
