    • 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

    • Arizona/Utha in Fall

      Arizona Jan 29, 2017 at 9:49 AM

      Hi :)

      I need some advice for travel. I want to go to Las Vegas this fall and then drive by car to Grand Canyon and etc.
      My plan looks like this:

      First Day - Pick up the Car, drive to Hoover Dam and then to Tusayan

      Second Day - Visit Grand Canyon. We are not really "hiking people", so everything that takes more thatn 2hrs round trip is probably to much.But as i seen on then internet, most places are pretty accesible by car or shuttle.

      Third Day - Drive to Page, visit the Slot Canyons arount 11 AM (tours start then). and visit Horseshoe Bend in the afternoon

      Fourth Day - Drive from Page to Bryce Canyon (about 3hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Fifth Day - Visit Bryce Canyon

      Sixt Day - Drive to Springdale for Zion NP (about 2hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Seventh Day - Zion NP (visit The Narrows)
      Eight Day - Zion NP - What should we do too?
      Ninnth Day - Spend morning in Zion then drive back to Vegas, Anything nice to see on the way there?

      What do you think, is it a good plan? Should we spend less/more at a specific place? We have read that roads in this area are usually straight and not crowded, so driving shouln't be a hussle.

      Any help is appreciated

    • Weather November

      California Feb 1, 2017 at 1:44 AM

      I know I asked yesterday about Florida but we are also looking at Palm/Desert Springs California - what is the weather liable to be like in November

      Will the roads be snow free to Las Vegas and what is the weather liable to be like in Vegas in November.

      Plan to possibly fly to Los Angeles - use Desert/Palm Springs and tour from there and possibly take a few days out to visit Vegas - could even fly into Vegas if the flights were cheaper

      Many thanks for so many questions

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?

      Any tips on finding the Mansion? My fiance and I will be traveling to Bangor on our honeymoon in September. Mainly to camp at Acadia, but, we've planned to visit several cities and towns that we've always wanted to see, one of which is Bangor (specificly to see Stephen King's Mansion). I know it's in the historic district, but could you give me a tip or two on fining it?

      Any tips on trying to the mansion? My fiance and I will be traveling to Maine on our Honeymoon, mostly for camping at Acadia, but plan on visiting many towns, one of which will be Bangor. I'm an avid Stephen King fan and specifically chose Bangor to take a gander at the Mansion and pick up some SK memorabilia. So, any help you could provide would be great. I know it's in the historic district, so it can't be too awful to find.

      Hotel/Motel in Bangor

      by goodfish Online Now Apr 29, 2006 at 6:39 AM

      Hi - we'll be hiking Acadia end of Sept. and flying in/out of Bangor. Will be staying there one night on the back end due to early morning flight time and need a reco for a good hotel/motel. There's not much for reviews on the VT site so would love to hear from a regular traveler to the Bangor area. I know, one night shouldn't be a big deal but had one really lousy experience with an airport hotel in Vegas (filthy/unsafe/everything broken/noisy/not cheap) so would like to end this trip on a higher note. We don't need fancy - just clean, reasonably comfortable and close to the airport. Being able to load/unload the car directly into the room (lower level rooms with direct entrance) would be great so we can throw stuff in the car in a hurry - no stairs or elevators. Any ideas?
