    • Should I make a 7 hour drive from Vegas to Tombstone?

      Tombstone 2 hours ago

      Am doing a road trip from Las Vegas to Chicago and want to visit Santa Fe. Before that though, I am very keen to detour down to Tombstone for some authentic Wild West history. It's a 7 hour drive from Vegas and I was planning on staying 2 nights-the first to recover from the drive, then the next day, seeing what Tombstone has to offer. Would I be wasting my time? Should I just go on to Santa Fe? All opinions welcome!

    • Compass Cove Hotel, Myrtle beach

      Myrtle Beach Jul 3, 2016 at 7:55 AM

      Help! I am about to drive 10 hrs to Myrtle Beach for July 4th. I had previously had a reservation at the Sea Mist Hotel. Upon reading the reviews, and noticed many complaints about roaches, I quickly cancelled my reservation and searched for another place. I saw good reviews for the Compass Cove Hotel and I booked there. Today, I read reviews on Trip Adviser and while many were good, I saw numerous complaints about maid service and ROACHES. I am PETRIFIED of bugs to the point that I have an exterminator every 3 weeks including the cold PA winters. Has anyone been there and experienced this? Do people in Myrtle Beach not like cleaning or something? I'm so confused

    • Moving to Miami from Cincinnati, Ohio

      Miami Beach Jul 21, 2016 at 11:36 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I am originally from Lima, Peru and have been living in Cincinnati for almost 15 years. I am currently 24, and I speak Spanish and English (so moving to Miami wouldn't be a problem in that category). I currently have an associate's degree in Civil Engineering and will be graduating from UC next spring with a Bachelors of Science in Architecture. My goal is to move to Miami right after graduation but I'm a little concerned about finding a job in my career? I frequently visit Miami at least once a year every year and I absolutely love it! I love the culture, the food, the weather and the beach! How easy or how difficult would it be for me? What do you guys suggest that I do before I move down there? It would be me, my boyfriend and our two german shepherds moving down :)

      Thanks!

    • Feedback/Suggestions needed for Portland/Seattle Trip

      Seattle Jul 21, 2016 at 1:49 PM

      The plan is to fly into Portland or Seattle and fly out of the other city.
      We will rent a car and want to definitely see the highlights that are most reasonable given our time constraints.
      I've heard the Oregon coast is amazing. Also heard about the hiking in the gorge!
      As for Washington - I know the winery Chateau St Michelle is nearby - that may be more doable.
      My boyfriend has never been to Seattle so I want him to see the market etc.
      But I would also love to see some of the whales and not sure if trying to squeeze in any of the islands is worth it or reasonable.
      We are foodies and hope to experience the each city for atleast a day a half plus some excursions.
      Any suggestions you can offer about routes to take - things to see and do and or a reasonable itinerary for 7 days is awesome. We don't want to come home exhausted but we also aren't afraid to pack a lot into a day and want some unique experiences that we can't have in other states!
      Thank you!

    • Travelling from Miami to St Pete... Public transport v Car hire?

      Florida Jul 3, 2016 at 6:53 AM

      Hi!

      I've been reading some of the discussions on here about travelling around in Florida.

      I'm going to be staying in Miami Beach, then heading up to St. Pete Beach. Is there any easy way that this can be done using public transport? I suspect from the discussions I've read so far, the answer is no, but I thought I'd have one last check!

      If travelling by car is the best option, are there any particular hire companies that have been tried and tested by participants on these forums?

      And finally, are there towns/cities on the way up that I should definitely stop in (not to stay necessarily, but just to see or take a day trip to during the week)? Naples, Venice and Sarasota have been recommended.

      And in St. Pete.... any things that shouldn't be missed, based on your own experiences? This can include things to do, places to see or places to eat/drink!

      Thanks in advance!

      Hey! I am travelling to the states in September and will be flying from NYC to Nashville around the 10th for a few days. The more research I have done about the area, the more I see there is to do outside of the honky tonks - The Smokey Mountains look incredible! How possible do you think it would be to venture out there without a car, on my own? I did look at some tours of the area but I couldn't seem to match any up to my time frame. Any advice on travel (reliability / safety) around that area would be much appreciated =)

      Help for a weekend - central without car, taxi ok

      by nomad7890 Online Now May 10, 2010 at 11:46 AM

      I am meeting a friend in Cincinnati and need to plan a few activites but without a car. Objective is to have some place to chat, while doing a little sight seeing. Would also enjoy attending mass at the St. Peter in Chains Cathedral ... so - please keep in mind distance- taxi ok, public transp. ok too.

      - what is a good place to stay (I saw the Marriott, is this in an OK neighborhood?) - or a similar place

      - What is a good breakfast/brunch place? I think a big lunch would be good.

      - Looked at Eden park for a stroll - are there nice quiet places but not too secluded places to sit there?

      - What about Carew Tower?

      - How far is the ball park from there - and is it open daily for tours?

      - How far is the Union Terminal from there - I just want to see the building.

      - What would be a nice but inexpensive place for dinner? American food, steak OK - nice, not stuffy, and most of all, fairly quiet - need to be able to have a good conversation.

      - What would you recommend after dinner?

      ok, too many questions. Don't want to make it too busy, mainly have a little activity, lots of opportunity to sit down and chat with as little heat and as much peace and quiet as possible, and a nice inexpensive meal at the end.

      Howdy,

      I’ll be attending a vocational training course in Lawrenceburg, Indiana during the month of March.

      Can anyone recommend a decent budget hotel for this long term stay? I don’t need a pool or fitness center or anything like that; just a clean room in a safe area within a 30 minute commute of Lawrenceburg. Also, I just need a table for my homework and possibly a refrigerator for some munchies.

      I posted on craigslist.com but only got shared room responses. Not really interested in that but a short term studio apartment rental would be great.

      Thanks

      Hi, My flight from Paris transits at Cincinnati and I have to catch another flight to Minneapolis. Is the domestic airport different from the international airport? If yes, how far is it? Is there arrangement for airport transfers?

      Thanks.

      35 minutes for transfer at Cincinnati Airport

      by christine.j Online Now Sep 7, 2005 at 6:53 AM

      My son needs to go to the US for a short trip to the East and West coast. The travel agency made him a offer which sounds good, but:
      The last leg of his trip will be from San Francisco to Cincinnati, then to Frankfurt. Both flights are with Delta, but there are just 35 minutes between landing and take off again. I don't know Cincinnati Airport, but to me that seems to be impossible. He can check his bags through, but usually the gates close 30 minutes before take off. Do you think there's a reliable chance for him top catch his flight? He has to decide by tomorrow if he books the flights.
      Thanks for any help.

      How about meeting us and CoAir13 (Jen and Ethan) for dinner, Thursday, August 4.

      CoAir13 (Jen and Ethan) will be visiting with us for a couple of days the first week in August, so we are inviting other Cincinnati/Dayton area VTers to meet us for dinner on Thursday evening, August 4, 6:00 p.m. at El Rancho Grande in Sharonville. It's easy to find, at 11765 Lebanon Road, just south of the Sharonville exit off i-275, between I-75 and I-71. You can sign up at the posting I have made in the VT meetings section. I know it's a week night, but many of you should still be able to make it. Let's get together, meet, and welcome Jen and Ethan to our corner of Ohio. The more the merrier.
