    • 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

      Day trip with two elderly persons in end of November

      by MacedonianUK Online Now Oct 13, 2013 at 8:00 AM

      I am visiting, Michigan for 9 days, and will include trip to Cleveland OH, for visiting old family friends. This is annual visit, to the couple who are in their early 80's.
      We usually visit in and around the city, they live in Parma Heights, just outside city limits. This time I would love to take them somewhere different but I don't have clue where.
      They ate spritely and very mobile 80yr olds & love dancing.
      I don't mind I'd its couple of hrs drive away to take them somewhere special where we can spend all day may be stay overnight. Some quaint village/little town, antique fair,Christmas fair...?
      Can you suggest something? Bear in mind it will be end of Nov and is usually bitterly cold at that time of the year.
      Many thanks .

      Truck Parking Along the Cayahouga

      by atufft Online Now Oct 6, 2011 at 1:08 PM

      I have the largest of tractor-trailer combos, the 53' which I use to haul produce from California to NY, and dry goods from Midwest back to CA. I've driven through downtown Cleveland's 90 degree bank turn freeway many times. But, I would like to park the truck in a vacant spot, safely far enough from bad neighborhoods not to get vandalized, and then walk the dog into downtown town and along the waterfront. If the dog weren't with me much of the time, I'd park at the Pilot Truck Stop and the junction of I-80 and I-77, and then take the 45 minute bus ride downtown, but maybe there's an area cleared of some old factory where I can park the truck. Any locals know where I should go...Bear in mind, my truck isn't an RV, it's a lot bigger...
