    • 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 :)

    • WDW to Gainesville public transport??

      by AFCB Online Now Mar 5, 2010 at 7:18 AM

      All,

      I will be over at Walt Disney World from the UK this coming September, I would like to watch the Gators at the Swamp, I was wondering if there are any decent public transport links between the WDW area and Gainesville that are viable for a day trip. I won't be hiring a car while I am there.

      Regards

      Things to Do

      by sarahjayn Online Now Apr 15, 2006 at 9:54 PM

      So, I am probably going to chaperone a trip to UF for my younger cousin and of her friends. It's a "so you might want to go to college one day" sort of a thing. They are tweens - middle school age to early high school. Some of the time, I will be without the girls, but the rest of the time they will be on my own as they will be doing something at or around the college.
      I'm looking, basically, for ideas on what to do with the girls when they are with me (cheaper = better), some things I can do on my own, and some moderately-priced restaurants with vegan / vegetarian options near the university. I used to have a bunch of friends who went to UF, but as time moves on so have they.
