    • 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 :)

      We were down there over a year ago on the main road just south of pier 60 and went into a parking area where they had an elevator taking you up and down to some beautiful beach wear. My wife bought an nice bikini and we would like to find out the name of the place to see if we could shop on line.

      My family is visiting good friends in the US in late September and will round up with a week's vacation in either Clearwater Beach or the Bahamas.

      Is the weather okay then? We come from Sweden and definitely want to hang in the sun on the beach. How warm is it usually in Clearwater Beach at this time? Is there a nice beach front hotel which suits a family like ours, with two small kids?

      I would really appreciate any thoughts upon this.

      Hi everyone
      I'll be in the area at the end of February of 2011. I have 3 day conference at Clearwater beach Sheraton. I want to come to Florida 2 days before the conference, to rent a car and explore the area a little (Salvador Dali museum etc.). I don't know what to do with car after that: to leave it for more 3 days to go some places on the evenings after confernece day, or to return it and just stay at the hotel and surrounding area. What is the traffic conditions at weekday evenings (after 5 pm), is it a lot of traffi jams? Where could you recommend to drive? I'm interested the mostly in sightseeing, less in the night life. So may be some places with special sunset? or interesting neon lights game? Any ideas?
