      • Kauai before or after O'ahu?
      • Can we fly into Honolulu...then jump over to Kauai ( Hawaiin Air?) then fly directly

      back home from there, Kauai - Chicago? Is there a better/cheaper way to do this?

      • Most popular area of Kauai to stay in? East , West, North, or South? for walkability,

      restaurants, beaches, etc?

      Northeast USA snow areas

      Vermont Dec 2, 2016 at 6:09 PM

      I want to take my two nieces, ages 18 and 13, to someplace "up north" in the USA to see snow over the Christmas break. I have skied in years past but no more. And the girls have never skied. So that is not an activity to consider. Just want to fly into a decent main stream airport and not have to drive too far to get to perhaps a ski resort where even if there is no real snow, we will still have the artificial fluff. :-) Vermont offers some darling villages with covered bridges but those are about 2 hours from any airport. Perhaps that will be the case with any of the "guaranteed" snow areas.......a bit of a drive from an airport. So, I am relying on my team of VT experts to point me in the right direction. I am thinking 3-4 nights at a hotel / resort. I don't mind driving. Just don't want to spend much of the vacation behind the wheel. Snow boarding, taking cable cars to the top of a mountain, sledding, horse drawn carriage rides........bring 'em on.

      Have thought of Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, New York etc

      I've never been to Asheville, NC before, but I'll be visiting most likely from late May to early June (two weeks). I read that the climate in the mountains can change from one hour to the next. Coming from the Florida Keys, I'm not used to cooler weather. Should I pack mostly long sleeved shirts, sweaters and jeans? I have a jacket or two, but not much in terms of layer clothing. Does it get hot as well during this time? I don't want to be too hot either. I plan on doing some hikes.

      Thank you for any information you can provide.

      by tarheelblue Online Now Jan 8, 2013 at 7:46 PM

      where should it be. I have never been to AsheVegas. Looking forward to it, even though its only 36 hours. Staying downtown, so have a preference to eat there, but West Asheville on the way out is not out of the question.

      For downtown joints EarlyGirl and TupeloHoney get all the press and I suppose rightly so. Also heard about a place "Overeasy" too?

      Many say head straight for SunnyPoint in west asheville. So I am flummoxed.

      Normally I try to steer clear of places that are primarily frequented by tourists as I would guess EG and TH are...but maybe thats not a fair guess. And if somethings good.....its good.

      Anyone familiar that can compare and contrast? Would be a Tuesday AM by the way.

I am in my 30s and already have 2 University degrees so no longer a student. If anyone has any ideas let me know. Otherwise it will just be a holiday but would absolutely love a summer job there!

      Hello, My longtime friend and I are planning a weekend reunion, meeting in Asheville. Looking for suggestions regarding best areas to stay that will allow us to walk, sip drinks or beer at cafe restaurant or pub, browse shops featuring work of local folk artists, hear some live folk music, acoustic guitar, etc. Would the Urban Trail be our destination? Or the Arcade Grove?(unable to access website to look at this area) Any other ideas? And can anyone suggest a hotel or B&B located within walking distance to these areas? Moderate priced (maximum150/night). Looking more for a liberal, quaint area rather than urban yuppie, if that makes sense. Not terribly interested in fancy malls, for example. Would prefer a room with two beds which might rule out B&Bs but would like to hear of suggestions anyway. I'm looking into a performance at the Orange Peel one night. Are there hotels near there?

    • The "Packet"

      by PhoenixLynn Online Now Oct 26, 2006 at 11:31 AM

      I'm considering moving to Asheville. I've never been there before, yet I've heard great things about it. I was born and raised in Florida (where I currently reside) and I lived in Ithaca, NY. Ithaca is a beautiful progressive town, yet coooooooooooooold. I feel Asheville would be a great move and a wonderful place to raise my son (and I hear the weather is mild). I ordered a packet through the Chamber of Commerce and I'm disappointed. It seems the housing there is quite expensive. Maybe they just put the more expensive housing in the packet to draw that type of person to Asheville? It's the suburban neighborhoods like "The Oak" or "The Sanctuary" where they cut down almost all the trees I want to escape from. I strive to live as natural as possible, grow most of my own food including sprouting. Heck, even make biodiesel in my garage! I'm just bummed by ths package. Of course, I'll go visit and get a feel for myself. Is there housing there for under100K for a 3 bd/ 2 bath on 1 acre?? I hear W. Asheville. But what towns? Thanks. =)

      I hope that someone who lives in Asheville will answer this. I am moving to Asheville because I like mountains and have no kids or grandkids to move towards like so many retirees. I wonder how easy it is for oldster females to make good friends. I mean friends, not just acquaintances. Is it unrealistic to move to a place where you know no one if you are no longer a spring chicken??! Thanks.
