      I'm a Brazilian guy married to an American Citizen. We have three daughters, all of them have American citizenship. We're going to visit Niagara Falls in December. I know that my wife and my kids can cross the border. Is it possible to get a visa in Buiffalo? How long will it take to get the visa there?

    • Vacation home in Tahoe City?

      Tahoe City 23 hours ago


      I'm considering buying a vacation home in Tahoe City having visited several times over the past few years.

      My concern is the price of property there is high and I'm worried if I wanted to sell in 5-10 years time would I at least get my money back.

      If you live there yourself or have any information on this it would be greatly appreciated!


    • metrocard info

      New York City Nov 22, 2015 at 11:20 AM

      Hi New Yorkers. I would be grateful for your help.
      I will be arriving in New York on 21st December in the afternoon and leaving on the evening of the 28th.
      I will require a single trip from Jamaica into Manhattan on the E train to get to my hotel and then I want an 7 day card that I will use from the 22nd until my departure on the 28th.
      My question is, can I just take my single trip card and get it loaded at a booth for 7 days on the 22nd or is the 7 day card a different type? Many thanks. Roy.

      Where do Visitors in their 60s find the Nightlife?

      Austin Nov 21, 2015 at 7:54 PM

      I'll be in Austin in the middle of December and am attracted to the 6th Street District nightlife. In which bars/pubs/nightclubs would people, in their 60s, gather? I feel out of place in joints, where only kids in their 20s fill the place.

    • New Year's Eve.

      New York City Nov 8, 2015 at 8:51 AM

      Hi. My wife and I fly out to New York on the 27th December and back to the UK on the 2nd January. We have our itinerary pretty well sorted but are struggling with what to do on NYE. We are staying on East 50th Street. My wife isn't a fan of fireworks so probably wouldn't enjoy Central Park and we do not want to spend a whole day standing in Times Square. We are young at heart mid 50's non-clubbing types and would like to go somewhere for a nice meal with possibly live music.Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thank you.

      Family Visiting US for the First Time - 2 Weeks Vacations

      United States of America 12 hours ago

      We are a 4 member family; Mikael 3, Misha 5, Urooba 20s, and myself 30s. Next month we plan to visit the US for vacations for 2 weeks. This will be our first time to the US – although we had been to family vacations before (Singapore, Nepal, Egypt, Bali, Malaysia, Sri Lanka).

      Before buying the return tickets, within next 2-3 days, I would like to have comments and suggestions on the following from the fellow VTers:

      Timing of the Trip:
      Option 1: December 8 – 25
      Option 2: December 25 – January 13

      Please suggest which Option would be better. I am thinking that it will be too crowded and hence expensive during the Option 2 (?). Is it too late if we go for the Option 1?

      Plan A: New York – Washington – Orlnado – Houston (3-4 days each place)
      Plan B: New York and nearby places (4-5 hours drive)

      Please suggest which itinerary one should opt for their first trip to the US? We expect to visit again in the coming years.

      Preferences: some tourist attractions, places/activities of kids’ interest. Budget friendly. It is expected that we will be staying with friends/family at least during some of the days.

      Since this is our first time and I have just started planning (a little late, I know) so all type of suggestions and information will be highly helpful and appreciated.

I do this quite often, even teach it, but I have never seen anyone, except on TV, do this, so I'd love to take part in a class. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
