    • 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 :)

      I will be make my first trip to Florida (Destin, Florida) on September 07,2014- September 11,2014.. I've heard talk about the ocean in the Florida Panhandle turning red and people not being sure if the water is safe to swim in.. I'm curious will this affect Destin (I truly wouldn't wanna waste an 8 hour drive not to see pretty ocean water)? What does Destin ocean look like? I'm staying at Crystal Sands.. My family goes every year and they say its beautiful but just curious about things. Does anyone have any tips that I should carry with?

    • Fun for 18 month old

      by cajungyrl Online Now Jul 1, 2014 at 9:22 AM

      Hi! We are planning a trip to Destin in September with our daughter. She will be 18 months old in September. What "fun" stuff can we do with her besides the beach and pool? I'm thinking more along the lines of what to do with her at night. Is there an amusement park with rides that she could ride?

      We are no strangers to Florida, however, this is our first trip with a child :) I'm so excited to take her to the beach!

    • Destin Spas

      by Ttam Online Now Jul 16, 2008 at 4:53 PM

      We have a vacation coming up soon to Destin and was wondering if anyone has been to some of the local spas? Specifically, the spa in the Sandestin Resort or the Hilton Spa (Serenity by the Sea). I would like to surprise my girlfriend with a massage. But she is pretty picky when it comes to the massage. She needs a male massage therapist, experienced and good looking (or at least somewhat appealing). And not someone with a gift for gab. Anyone?
