    • How safe is Formosa Gardens area?

      Kissimmee 3 hours ago

      Hi, VT'ers. Me and my family are planning to spend next holidays in Orlando/Kissimmee area. We've been there several times but we always stayed in gated communities. This time we're going to rent a house near Formosa Gardens but it isn't in a gated community so I'm a little concern about safety. Should I be concern about safety? Is it safe to leave the house alone during the day/night? How safe is Formosa Gardens area? I really appreciate any advice or comment. Thanks

      trying to spend as little time as possible in rental car
      itinerary so far is
      1. anchorage to seward - 3 days - for kenai fjord all day tour, hiking exit glacier/harding ice field, final day of hiking or biking, fishing
      2. next 3 day itinerary is where I need help - thinking either homer for 2 nights knowing that will add lots of car time
      or renting house in girdwood area for access to prince William sound tour, hiking, cooper landing, alyeska, wildlife conservation center, ??? other ideas.
      Or one night girdwood and one night north of anchorage on way to talkeetna- ideas??
      3. last night is talkeetna for denali flight seeing tour then back to anchorage for night flight out
      Or would everyone recommend 3 days seward and 3 days denali? feels like it would be a lot of driving...

      Hi everyone. My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Stamford, CT at the end of January, 2015 and were wondering do you have any suggestions on what to do for fun? We don't just want to be stuck in the hotel for the 3 days we are there, ya know? We are pretty much up for anything as long as it doesn't require us to be exposed to the elements for too long. He and I both know how cold it can get because he is from Massachusetts and I'm from Pennsylvania. Please any and all suggested ideas are welcomed even if not exactly in the Stamford area, we don't mind driving a little ways (well within reason). Thank you for your time.

      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?
