      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 8 hours ago

      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?

      Kansas City Dec 13, 2014 at 6:38 AM

      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!

      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 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'm planning a trip to VA beach in about 3 weeks, and having trouble finding a place to rent located near Sandbridge. I hear its away from the hustle and bustle of the VA beach resort area, and that the two main realitors only rent to family groups only. Does anyone know if that's true or has rented places where you weren't a family group? If so, how did that go? There's going to be a group of us age from 18-25, with me being the oldest. Would they not rent to me because we're students and not a family group? We're planning on just renting a place there as a place we can come back to after a long day of site seeing. No wild parties, etc. I'm having trouble finding a place to put us all in (15 people or so), does anyone have suggestions for Sandbridge locations or locations near VA beach that would accommadate 15 people at a fairly low budget? lol, we're students afterall. :)
