Hi, I'm off to LV for the week, visiting family and I enjoy dancing and good music more than gambling. Shows are expensive, too. Any ideas for good places to hear R&B or Django jazz? Or how about Lindy or east coast swing dancing?
Would love meeting up with locals over drinks - where do they go?
We have planned out our time in Alaska with the exception of the part around choosing either Seward with kayaking at the Aialik Glacier or Valdez with kayaking at Prince William Sound.
We arrive in Anchorage at 6am in June and the options we are deciding between are:
1. Day 1 Drive to Seward, maybe do a glacier hike at Exit Glacier. Day 2 take the all day water taxi / glacier paddling to Aialik glacier (Liquid Adventures). Day 3 return through Anchorage and drive up to Healy for 2 nights to visit Denali NP. Day 4 shuttle to Wonder Lake in Denali NP. Day 5 drive to Tok. Day 6 drive to Kluane NP, day 6 drive to Haines.
2. Day 1 Drive to Healy to visit Denali NP. Day 2 shuttle to Wonder Lake in Denali NP. Day 3 drive to Valdez. Day 4 glacier paddling to Columbia glacier in PWS. Day 5 drive to Tok. Day 6 drive to Kluane NP, day 6 drive to Haines.
From what we have read, Seward has more wildlife but while the paddling at Aialik may be better it is definitely more expensive, though there may be a reason for this I.e it is better?. We miss out of the scenic Glenn Highway and Richardson Highway.
If we skip Seward and go to Valdez the drive appears to be more scenic but maybe we are sacrificing wildlife and the glacier paddling doesn't seem as good or hyped up.
If anyone has done these 2 variations of itinerary we would really appreciated input as it is hard to sort out the best option with tradeoffs... driving scenery versus best paddling versus wildlife etc. Also the road conditions, Glenn and Richardson Highway to Tok or around Fairbanks, Alaska Highway to Tok.
After Haines, we are dropping the car (one way hire with Avis) and travelling on the AMHS to Juneau, Gustavus (for Glacier Bay), Sitka, Wrangell and Ketchikan. We are not sure if what we may see in the second part of the trip changes which of the options we are best to do out of Anchorage.

Is there a lounge area for overnighting in the airport in Honolulu?
Just hoping if anyone could recommend a nice, good value hotel / motel / B&B with a good view of the mountains. We are staying 1 night in the area on our way to Georgia this month and I want a nice but inexpensive place to rest for the night. We are in our Mid-20s and love the outdoors. Thank you!
Hi 3 friends and myself are heading to Myrtle beach at the end of the month to work. We have a motel confirmed but are trying to find a condo/apartment with cooking facilities etc. Also we are confused about Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. Which one would be better for j1 students in terms of nightlife,jobs,accommodation....
Is north myrtle beach more of a golf/upclass resort? We are finding it hard to get accommodation in the main myrtle beach area. Any info greatly appreciated.

Hello, Austin folks! We are going to be in town over the 4th of July. What's the best bet for fireworks? Also, we'll be staying downtown because our 16-yr-old son is going to a gaming thing at the Convention Center. Do we need a car to see the best that Austin has to offer? We'll be there from the 3rd to the 9th.
Thanks for any info and recommendations!

We are hiring a rental car from Bozeman Airport in January and driving to West Yellowstone. We have booked 3 nights at Old Faithful Snow Lodge, and as the road will be closed, are wondering where to leave the rental car till we get back to West Yellowstone. We will then be driving on to Big Sky. We have the Xanterra snowcoach booked to take us into the park.
I am planning to go to Yellow s-Stone from Los Angles with family on the first week of August. I will drive to Salt Lake and then to Montana (Grant) since it's the shortest route per some one. Do you agree with this? I don't know where to stay. Some people suggest stay in different parts few days. Also I want a place that has kitchen if possible and close to park. This way we can cook break fast and few dinners. I can change the route if anyone suggests a better way. I don’t have a clue where to stay. I appreciate any suggestions and comments.
We will be staying in a cabin at the pine shadow motel. Just wondering how good or how bad is it. We will be snowmobiling for 3 days. Last year we stayed at yellowstone lodge and it was great, but the people we're going with this year wanted a fireplace so I found this place. Hibernation station was too much for a last minute vacation. The man I spoke to at the pine shadows is very nice so I'm hoping it's ok. I just want to be prepared. Anyone know?
