    • 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

    • Travelling by rented car

      Miami Feb 16, 2017 at 4:55 AM

      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 :)

      does anyone know which of these are better? I've seen reviews for both and they don't make the places look good.
      We want something on the beach, if possible, and with a kitchenette so we can cook our nightly meals. Thanks in advance

      I'll be in clearwater in May for my birthday and since I'm coming from Canada, I'd really like to go to a seaside restaurant for my birthday dinner.

      Last time in Florida, I went ot Sundowners in Key Largo, it was amazing! They had tables right on the sand next to the water, with tiki torches and a live margaritaville style band playing. Is there anything like that in Clearwater

      Thanks for your help,

      I'm staying in Clearwater in May and would like to drive further afield. I like the look of the Manitee reserve at Homasassa.

      It looks to be about 60 miles on the map, but the road is what we in the UK would call an A road, which means that there are stops. How long should it take and is it worth going?

    • Relocating for new job

      by aprilmay23 Online Now Mar 27, 2005 at 6:49 PM

      I just got a job in Clearwater/St. Pete (right off of 275 at Ulmerton Rd)and will be moving to a new apartment in June. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for apartments or good areas to look for apartments in the St. Pete/Clearwater/South Tampa area. I'm 24 and single, with no children, so I'm not worried about good schools or anything, just areas to live where I would find other "young professionals." I have friends who live in the New Tampa/Tampa Palms area and also make the occasional commute to Lakeland, so I would like something that would make those visits not too painful as well, but still have a nice commute to work. If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

    • Another person moving to Florida

      by sweetiepiepie Online Now Apr 26, 2004 at 10:17 AM

      Hi everybody, So, Ok, I'm another person who's planning to move to Florida. I'm most interested in areas North of Clearwater because I don't want to have to drive those bridges across the bay any time I want to head East. I know what the traffic can be like and would prefer to avoid it if at all possible. Plus, I think being closer to the Gulf would be better weather-wise, more breezes, hopefully cooler temps, and of course, access to the beaches... Or am I totally wrong about the weather thing? I'm eager to get everyone's opinion on area's they would or would not recommend and why. This is your chance to spout off, tell it like it is, go for it! Also, my boyfriend is from Venice, Italy. Does anyone know of any really strong Italian/American communities in the area? Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Grazie, Liliana
