    • 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

      Mystic Taxi Fares & Community Bikes

      Mystic Oct 18, 2013 at 4:48 PM

      Hi all
      We have changed our mind 100 times regarding our trip to Mystic as we do not have a vehicle and public transport seems non existent in this town.
      Our latest plan is until someone shoots it down is to arrive at the Mystic Amtrak Station from Boston on a Friday morning at 11am (most likely in May)then catch a taxi to the Mistick Village area where the hotels seem a lot cheaper than in the town itself.
      We would then utilise the Mystic Community Bike scheme on Friday and Saturday to have a good look around Mystic then catch a taxi back to the Amtrak on Sunday morning.
      Question is does anybody have a rough idea of taxi fares from the Amtrak station to the Mistick Village area? Is the Mystic Taxi service reliable enough to get us to our 10am train on Sunday morning to New York? and does the above plan seem feasible at all?
      Regards
