    • 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

    • 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 :)

      Monhegan Island Lodging

      by EPTraveler Online Now Jul 18, 2007 at 6:42 AM

      We are thinking about heading out for a night on Monhegan Island. Can anyone make a lodging recommendation?

      Also, we are thinking about staying at the Topside Inn for our first night in Boothbay. It appears to be on the pricey side, but the view looks fantastic. Are there any other options for Boothbay that are as scenic for less money?

      Lastly, can anyone make a lodging recommendation in the Camden area? Ideally, we have a vision of a room on a cliff with the ocean crashing down below us. As close to this fantasy as we can get would be terrific. If such a place exists on the middle coast, other than the Camden area, we would be open to that too.

      Thank you!

      Boothbay as a home base?

      by EPTraveler Online Now Jun 7, 2007 at 1:51 PM

      We are planning a trip to Boothbay Harbor early this fall, mid-Sept and will be in the area for 4 nights. Could anyone suggest some coastal destination(s) for an alternative night or two stay that are scenic and interesting outside of Boothbay? We will have a car. If possible, we would like to avoid the more touristy areas (Bar Harbor, from the sound of it) and concentrate on the famed rugged coast or anything else scenic that is recommended. On the flip side, if there is a strong argument to spend our entire time in Boothbay, I'd like to know that also. It is our first visit to the area and we are really looking forward to it.

      Thank you VTr's in advance.

    • Parents 50th wedding anniversary

      by 3ringcircus Online Now Feb 4, 2005 at 6:38 AM

      I am planning their trip to Maine in August (their anniversary). I am "packaging" the trip as a gift. They aren't very active, so the emphasis will be on beautiful views. Any opinions about the Lobster Festival in Rockland? I was considering a hotel stay in Boothbay Harbor because it is mid-way between Rockland for the festival and Freeport for shopping. Any recommendations for a place with fantastic views, not too stuffy-but not too loud either, with a restaurant and pool? Any opinions about Linekin Bay Resort? Also, any other suggestions for whale watching tours? Clambakes? Any other suggestions for low exertion outings? Since this is their 50th wedding anniversary gift from their children, I'm feeling the pressure to "make it perfect". Thank you! Return to the Maine forum home page

      I'm planning a trip to Boothbay Harbor, Maine this summer-mainly to go on the Puffin cruise. I will fly to Portland from NYC. Does anyone know how I could get from Portland to Boothbay Harbor? Is it absolutely necessary to have a car to get around? I'd prefer not to drive, but will if I have to. Thanks. (Also, has anyone gone on the Puffin cruise?)
