    • 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

      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

      Cheap Wedding Reception in Cape May

      by sweet_sentiments Online Now Jun 2, 2011 at 8:12 AM


      we want the wedding ceremony to be by the beach and we found our "spot"

      we're now hunting for reception venue.... we inquired on some but they're just too pricey for our budget.... there are "somewhat" cheaper ones but the parking is a problem....we're just having a very intimate & informal wedding and our guests are just 30-40 and it would be on a Saturday, May of next year

      does anyone knows of a:

      1. cheap but decent restaurant in cape may for wedding reception? a regular banquet will do (like chinese buffet)
      2. with ample parking spot (a must)
      3. near beach ave would be nice but not a requirement...
      4. max budget is50 per person..

      thanks in advance!

      Washington DC to Cape may

      by elland Online Now Nov 24, 2008 at 9:06 AM

      Hi from N.Ireland. I will be visiting DC with my wife and kids 15 and 11 in July 2009. After this we intend to visit Cape May for 5 -7 days to chill and enjoy the beaches. We will then finish in NY.
      Which would be the most interesting route to Cape May. I can either go across via Chesapeake, South and up to Lewes or North and down to Wildwood etc. We would have about 3 days for the journey. Any hints on places of interest or cool places to go/stay would be greatly appreciated.

    • Reviews on The Delsea

      I was looking up B&Bs in Cape May and came across The Delsea. It seems very nice and it claims to be one of the first B&Bs in the area, but I can't seem to find any reviews on it. Has anyone stayed there before or know someone that has? I find it a little odd that no one has commented on this place.

      Appreciate any info you can give,

My son is into wakeboarding and/or skimboarding. The last two years we have enrolled him in a summer daycamp which he liked. My wife and I like to hike (short distances) and love a good cup of coffee. Does anyone have any good suggestions for places to be (and not to be).
