    • 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

      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

      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?

      With all the info just now about delays in US airports going thru Security, I am wondering if it is going to affect me, as I have to change planes, flying in from Mexico and continuing to Europe.
      I know that in all US airports one has to reclaim their luggage where you go thru Immigration, but when you put it back into the system to be forwarded on, are you then still able to stay behind the Security system, or are you back out and need to go thru it to make your connecting flight?

      My fiancé and I are taking a road trip. San Antinio, Austin, Nashville, Memphis, and Savannah in early April. We are also bringing our bicycles. The bikes are just for joy riding in pretty places, not necessarily for transportation. Welcoming ideas on where to stay, interesting things to see and do. Also welcome the back door out of the ordinary as well as the usual tourist attractions. Not huge fans of museums all day.
      Thank you very much! So excited!

      It seems VT just allows you to pick one city at a time. So I apologize if some of you have seen this request. I appreciate those who have posted.
      I would love to hear from more of you. Any ideas on things to do and see or places to stay in Savannah?

Trying to decide if we should stay in one place in the historic district (near River Street or Forsyth Garden) for the whole time, or split it into 3 nights on Tybee then 5 nights in Savannah - or some other combination. We want to end our stay in Savannah, as we will be there for St. Patrick's Day. Does anyone have any recommendations as to how to best use our time? We will have a rental car, and thought we'd explore the coastal areas, and enjoy the local history. Any/all suggestions welcome.
