    • 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

      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 :)

      Anchoring in the Dry Tortugas

      by grandmaR Online Now Oct 4, 2003 at 3:16 PM

      Someone came down to the dock yesterday and told my husband that you can no longer anchor off the Dry Tortugas. Does anyone know if that is true?

      Camp Ground and Location

      by grandmaR Online Now Feb 17, 2003 at 2:02 PM

      The NPS web site says the campground is closed until further notice. But that's the only place that has that information. It doesn't seem to be anywhere else out there. So is it closed or not? Also, I put Dry Tortugas into the Search and get "Dry Tortugas" and "Dry Tortugas National Park". And when I ask for locations near Dry Tortugas, I get that the National Park is some 2 miles away, and Garden Key is another 2 mile distance and Ft. Jefferson is another 2 mile distance (different from Garden Key and different from the National Park. Is there any way that can be reconciled?
