    • 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

    • Weather November

      California Feb 1, 2017 at 1:44 AM

      I know I asked yesterday about Florida but we are also looking at Palm/Desert Springs California - what is the weather liable to be like in November

      Will the roads be snow free to Las Vegas and what is the weather liable to be like in Vegas in November.

      Plan to possibly fly to Los Angeles - use Desert/Palm Springs and tour from there and possibly take a few days out to visit Vegas - could even fly into Vegas if the flights were cheaper

      Many thanks for so many questions

    • Travelling by rented car

      Miami Feb 16, 2017 at 4:55 AM

      Hello,
      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 :)

    • Buffalo Roundup

      by appylady Online Now Jul 7, 2010 at 7:59 PM

      We are planning on going to the buffalo roundup in Sept. Does anyone know if the campgrounds are packed full during the roundup? We would like to stay at Center Lake campground but, if I understand correctly, you can't make reservations ahead of time at Center Lake campground. Is that correct?

      Any info on the roundup and camping would be appreciated. Thanks.

    • Custer State Park Camping Cabins

      by SDNewbie Online Now Apr 6, 2010 at 4:25 PM

      We are staying for two nights in a camping cabin the Game Lodge area. The only other area open for the other two nights of our stay is in either in the Game Lodge area or the South Stockade area. I cannot find any pictures of the South Stockade area. Has anyone stayed at this campground? What is it like and would you recommend it over the Game Lodge area? It will be myself, my husband, and our 9 year old daughters. Thanks.
