    • 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 :)

    • best beach

      by aloumakis Online Now Jul 7, 2014 at 10:59 AM

      I am planning a trip to The Keys and Islamorada has been highly recommended to me. I am not much of a swimmer, but do enjoy walking along the shoreline, getting in the water up to my knees. From looking at pictures, it seems there are very few locations where one can do this. Can you tell me the best beach location on Islamorada?

      I am heading to Islamorada for a week April 29th and staying at the Metacumbe Resort. Has anyone stayed there or has seen the resort? If so, is it pretty and can you swim on the beach, if there is one. The internet doesn't have many photo's of this resort. Thanks

    • PADI certified diving charters

      by BuddyD Online Now Mar 5, 2005 at 5:25 AM

      My wife and I were certified for open water scuba diving last year and want to continue our training along with some recreational diving in mid-March. Can anybody recommend a good dive charter shop in Islamorada or surrounding area? We're novices but do not want to go out on a cattle boat and prefer more individualized instruction. Thanks!
