      suggestions for a drive thru

      Connecticut Aug 17, 2015 at 1:43 PM

      My husband and I will be heading to Martha's Vineyard for a wedding, arriving in NY on the 7th and spending the 9th-11th at Martha's Vineyard and then back to NYC by the 13th. We plan on driving from LGA to Boston and then down to the wedding, then back to NYC. We'd like to see Boston, but not spend more than a day and a half. We enjoy local food and customs as well as flea markets. Any suggestions for an interesting, not too touristy, itinerary?

This holiday is our best yet we have spotted 49 out of the 50 US States with only Alaska to go. We've tried everything to spot one to no avail. We only have 3 days left! Does anyone know where we could find one on a friends vehicle or a colleague you may know in the vicinity of Orlando.

I have 4 kids, so hiking inland is not an option at this point. We have 1 big tent and 1 car.
      i don't have to be on the lake, but it would be nice to be near some water. maybe there is another location near Big Bear, another Lake....

    • Shoes for hiking

      Maui Aug 5, 2015 at 9:13 AM

      we go to Maui this September. We are trying to figure out what shoes would be best for some hikes we plan to do.

      The shoes we plan to bring are Brooks Running shoes, Keens H2 Newport Hiking Sandals, and flip flops

      The hikes we are planning are:

      Twin Falls: we plan to wear the Keens, as we will be walking thru water and plan to go into the water falls. It doesn't make much sense, to wear tennis shoes to take them off and put on flip flops.

      Waihee Ridge Trail: Here is where i am not certain. A lot of post saying Hiking boots are best on this trail for traction. we are not bring hiking boots during travel. It doesn't seem worth it for a 2 hour hike. So I am left with the tennis shoes or my keens. My keens probably have more traction, but the tennis shoe probably has more surrounding support.

      Gun crime,free country in USA (Closed Thread)

      I don't want to alert any one,just a general question!

      More and more we are hearing about gun crime in America over here in the uk and the tragic event of the news reporter most recently!

      As far as i am aware USA is what they class as a free country,am i right? ie; every us american citizen has the right to own a gun..(please correct me if i am wrong,this is just my understanding)
      Can you just walk in to a shop and buy a gun regarding you are over 21 (and also heard parents can buy guns for under 21,from the age of 18)

      Do the American citizens just walk in to a shop and buy a fire arm,or do they need to apply for a licence?

      Also,but worried about asking this question as i have no intentions of getting one,and i have no plans to visit usa for a while,but could i or any other tourist walk in to fire arm shop and just purchase a fire arm!
      many thanks for reading this and look forward to your answers!

    • Need Quick Response - Does Circle Line Cruises Sell Out?

      New York City Aug 26, 2015 at 11:46 AM

      We're coming to NY next week and I've been debating on getting the Explorer Pass vs just going to the attractions (I did create another post on this). We want to do the Landmark Cruise if the weather is nice (1.5 hrs so not too long for our kids). And we would be looking at a Friday 3:30p cruise (or alternative is 11am).

      Do these cruises sell out or is there typically room? The pass at a current deal saves us around $88 USD, which is substantial. The downside to getting the pass is that we cannot reserve a spot on the cruise compared with booking with the Circle Line site directly. (Also, if it ends up being a rainy day, then we would have to skip he cruise and pick another explorer attraction)
      PS - This offer ends tonight and my husband is away to get his opinion (but I know he was keen on the cruise too)

      Greetings Beloveds!

      I will travel with a party of three (including one senior who gets around fairly poorly when walking for over a couple of blocks). We'll arrive in Albuquerque, NM, and have reservations for a shuttle to our property in Santa Fe. Now I'm considering staying at Santa Fe Hotel on the Plaza (to minimize driving) for this initial visit. The Hyatt Place Santa Fe seems so reasonable and nice, that I considered renting a vehicle and staying there instead. Hmm... Please provide anything you'd care to contribute about a 4 day visit to Santa Fe. More specifically, I'm interested in the following:

      ~ Dependable Shuttle suggestions for transport from/to Albuquerque, NM to Santa Fe
      ~ Small group tour of some culturally interesting places
      ~ Shopping for a few small jewelry items, small sculpture and/or art
      ~ Good dining (native, vegetarian)
      ~ Great spots for photo opportunities

      I so value your input. Thank you, kindly!

    • New York Explorer Pass

      New York City Aug 21, 2015 at 5:29 AM

      Anyone done the New York Explorer Pass and found it easy to use and worthwhile? We're thinking of getting the 3 attraction one and using it on Top of the Rock, Landmark Cruise (if good weather) and Ripleys or Discovery Museum. When i worked it out, it saves us around $65 for four of us (2 adults, 2 kids). And I like the fact that you don't have to squeeze all the attractions in on one day.

      Anyone know if you can skip lines for any of the above attractions? And if you select to have the pass on your phone, is there still somewhere I have to go to pick something up (e.g. I've read people complaining about getting a voucher, and not sure if that is only for specific rides - or some guide book) ? I don't want the pass to be a nuisance.

      Would love to hear feedback if others like it, or had issues using it.

      Hi - we have 8 days in New York in october and wanted to see a little countryside whilst there. My idea is to get a train from Penn Station to Albany and then hire a car and drive to woodstock in vermont, overnight there and then drive on to Lake Placid, overnight there and then drive back to albany, drop the car, get on a train to NYC and go to the airport. Is this a good trip - or do you recommend better?
