    • alligators + tourist attractions

      Tampa Jan 31, 2017 at 5:46 AM

      I have a phobia about alligators and yet I want somewhere warm for an end of Nov/Dec break. Are there any alligators on the beach at this time of the year - does anyone have personal knowledge of the situation

      Apart from Disney what other attractions are there - we would like to do some touring but looking at the crime rate in Charleston/New Orleans we are scared as we came close to being run off the road in Washington DC near the Jeffereson library Plan to stay about 2-3 weeks so could do 1000/1500 miles comfortably with hotels interspersed

      Can I add my thanks to VT which has been invaluable to me and enabled me to stay safe and see lots of places I wouldn't have seen. Only hope there is a last minute reprieve

    • Travelling by rented car

      Miami Feb 16, 2017 at 4:55 AM

      Hello,
      We will be travelling in America this March, so we have decided to rent a car. We have heard that there are roads which require payments. 1. How can we pay these fees? Cash, credit card? Could rented car use sunpass and toll-by-plate? If yes, how to get it online? 2. What insurance car needs to have zero excess?
      Thank you in advance :)

      My parents (80 & 76) are planning to drive from Hartford to Amelia Island later this month. I don't think they should be driving this distance at their ages and my Mom is absolutely terrified. They are renting a condo for two months so they would need to take periodic trips to local grocery store to stock shelves. I was thinking I'd buy them airline tickets in lieu of their plan. What transportation services are available down there? Renting a car for two months could be prohibitively expensive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

      HI....My girlfriend and I are headed to Amelia Island over Labor Day weekend,
      Sept 4 - 5- 6 and early 7 and I know there are a few VTers in the area. Anyone who wants to get together for a cup of coffee or sandwich, just email me here at VT: SONG@VTmail.com. Do you know of any special activities for that weekend on the island? What restaurants would you recommend? We have a place to stay so that is not a problem. Anything that we should be SURE and see?
