I was wondering if there was a website that anyone knows bout that gives information about annual events/ celebrations around the world. For Example the Carnivales in Brazil And Trinidad and also the one they have in Miami in october for the carribean also at the moment Miami, Florida has Art Basel going on. It doesnt neccesarily have to be celebrations such as those above but differnet events that would catch the attention of tourists and poeple who like to travel but cant decide where. I would like to know of different events happening around the world that would make the experience much more memorable.Thank you
I'm going to Mexico from El Paso. But I don't know how to get to central caminoera. Please let me know if you have information.
where can I get a list of the stores that are located in a courtyard like setup in Tarpon Springs. There's a shop that sells all Jimmy Buffet shirts, a Life is Good shop, clothing boutiques etc. I can't think of the name of the shopping area (the entrance is across from the sponge docks . I have been mostly finding the single stores that are right on Dodocanese ... this sits back and you kind of go through and archway
We had previously a very bad experience at the Fort Collins Lakeside KOA campground. The owner has a violent temper, and he had been verbally abusive to my wife. Please recommend alternatives for family-friendly monthly RV sites.
I will be staying in Memphis and wanted to go to Tunica Casino area for a few days. I understand that there is no shuttle or rental car agency in Tunica, so is there a rental car agency near Springhill Suites Marriott where I will be staying? Any suggestions on transportation? Thanks, Sheldon
In regards of crime and traffic during the rush hours, mainly.
My Fiance and I are going to Breckenridge this Decemeber and we arent snow skiing but we are tubing, ziplinning and doing the rollercoaster and much more. What do you think would be the proper appereal to wear walking around or during our activites?
I'm looking for advice as to whether to stay near Kailua-Kona or if I want to go north a bit to Waikoloa instead of Kailua-Kona. Wiakoloa was only recommended Nov-Dec in the Lonely Planet guide and I have no idea why. It seems like Waikoloa has more white sand beach/resorts in that area, so it seemed nice.
I'm planning on going a week in either June, July, or August. And spending 4 days on NW side Kona area, and 4 days in SE Hilo area near Volcano or Pohoa near the shore. Last trip to Hawaii, my family went to Maui and we really liked the Kaanapali area. But we didn't like Kihei as it was hotter. My family members are unfortunately allergic to the sun (not kidding) and broke out in bad skin rashes in Kihei from the heat. So I'm trying to find a spot that is beautiful, hopefully ocean views, but where heat won't be a problem.
Any advice you can give is great. At least Volcano, HI should be cool because of the elevation!
The first thing I would like to say is Gob Bless New Orleans and its inhabitants.
You know when there was the Hurricane Katrina in 2005 , i was young, i was ten , and at that time from the French TV, I could only see , what French TV wanted us to know. Then as the years went by, I got more and more interested in that city. And what I can say today is that i've fallen in love with it . I'm 19 now, and i'm writting an essay on it . And believe me i love this amazing New Orleans, i feel like i need to go there , i must go there like something is calling me.
So can you advise me some places to visit ? I would like to go to Congo Square and join some Festivals.
What must I not miss ?
How do you purchase food in Vancouver,Washington?
Do you have local farmer's markets everyday?
If so, where are they located?
Does anyone bake bread daily there?
Do they have anything in Portland?
The restaurants don't sound very interesting, so I hope to buy
very good food and prepare it myself.
I plan on visiting the Vancouver, Washington area after Seattle, and going across the
Columbia river for "sales tax" free shopping in Portland, Oregon.
Is it possible to do this without a car?
Is it worth going to Portland for shopping?
It must be nice to live in an income tax free state like Washington, and drive
across the river to a sales tax free state like Oregon.
Hi VTers, I am going to be in Vancouver for a couple of days this week staying with a friend. Can you give me some suggestions on things to see here? Also, if you can suggest places nearby Vancouver to see things and do, besides Portland, that would also be appreciated. Thanks!
Going to visit Dear Old Dad in the Spring and he has been complaining about the lack of good restaurants in the Vancouver area. He said that everything is either a chain or fairly posh (Hudsons, Bacchus, etc). He likes Hudsons but has been trying to find something in the mid-price range that isn't a chain or fast food. I know PDX has a plethora of good places but Dad also hates crossing the river and driving in Downtown.
Is there anything that is within, say 20 miles of Vancouver that has good, home cooked food, is still in Washington State and is reasonably priced and not a Red Robin or Applebys? Dad most likely will know every restaurant in the area but I am hoping someone knows a hidden place that he hasn't found yet! :o)
We have to be on the West Coast in August and are thinking about taking a cruise to Alaska from either Vancouver or Seattle, but don't want to take one of the big, fancy cruise ships. Does anyone know of smaller, funkier ships that cruise to Alaska? Thanks Alice in New Haven, Ct
