    • 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 :)

      We had previously a very bad experience at the Fort Collins Lakeside KOA campground. The owner has a violent temper, and he had been verbally abusive to my wife. Please recommend alternatives for family-friendly monthly RV sites.

      I was reading all about Horsetooth Res and the water sports access sounds great, but is there a place nearby that you can ride ATV's? Perhaps a rental place as well?

      relocation

      by CaliHopkins Online Now Sep 6, 2006 at 1:12 PM

      All right, I have heard a few rumors from CNN, but I would like the real story. I currently live in beautiful So Cal, and I find that due to family situations we need to be closer to Oklahoma-- not in Oklahoma you understand, just closer. In any case, we have 3 kids, ages 12,10 and 7. Want to see how the schools are, how the community is, how the cost of living is. Seems like it is much lower than I am used to, but just checking. Also have looked into CO Springs -- didnt see the wonders that everyone talks about there. Perhaps I just missed it?

      Hi all, I'm working on an extended contract in Fort Collins. I'm hoping to get some skiing in over the weekend. The company I'm working for handles all my travel arrangements. The car they have rented for me is a Ford Mustang. My question is will I have trouble with this car in the snow? I don't have much experience in snow conditions. The local weather is not telling me too much about road conditions. Last question... Anybody interested in a day of skiing on me? You drive I'll pay! Mark
