    • 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 :)

      Transportation to Miromar outlet mall

      by Arodster Online Now Jan 31, 2015 at 7:53 AM

      I'll be visiting Fort Myers beach - staying in a condo (off Estero Blvd) and would like to take in some shopping at Miromar outlet mall. I've mapped it out and it looks like it's about half hour away from my condo, however, we will not be renting car, so am wondering if there's public transit that will take me to this mall. Any help would be appreciated. thanx Anna

      by theskygoddess Online Now Mar 14, 2014 at 4:29 PM

      My husband and I were there about six months ago an are returning next week for our anniversary. When we were there we stopped at a outdoor bar and watched a one man band. We had the best flat bread pizza there but we can't remember the name of the place or exactly where it was. It was somewhere in the Time Square area. It was not a pizza place though. Can anyone tell me what the name of this place is?
