    • 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 :)

    • Help me prove I am not crazy!

      by dj9080 Online Now May 10, 2009 at 5:48 PM

      On Easter Sunday, 2009, my 26 year old son and I visited Isle of Palms and ate a simply delicious burger from what I would call a bar and grill. It was on the left going in the direction of Sullivans from the IOP. We saw it from the front but drove around and parked in the back, climbed up steps in the back and ate on the outside deck. Inside the restaurant was a bar, 2 pool tables and a place for a band. As we sat on the deck and looked toward the ocean we could see a hotel or condominiums that was open underneath and people were coming and going under it to the beach. There was a large dog or maybe even two lying on the floor by the bar. I used my credit card and it was listed on my statement a Rock and Roll Roadhouse, although that was not the name that was on the restaurant. Here is my dilemma, we have been back twice since then and cannot find the place......and not only that no one know what I am talking about. People say it was Windjammers, it was not! It was not ocean front but about a block off, and as I said we could see people going to beach under a hotel or condo. We think it may have been in the vicinity of the fire station.
      Please help!!! Not only do we want to eat there again but we have to prove to ourselves that we are not crazy. Thanks! Dianne Johnson

      Hi,

      I want to take my 3 year old for a one day beach trip at IOP. Can anyone suggest me a nice hotel/inn on the beach front? If other hotels are better than beachfront hotels, I don't mind driving to the beach.

      Beach and tides at Isle of Palms

      by OTKrista Online Now Mar 19, 2006 at 10:34 AM

      We rented a house at Folly Beach a couple of years ago and were disappointed (epecially our then 2 year old little boy) that at high tide the beach completely disappeared (at least where we were) and I wanted to make sure that wasn't an issue at Isle of Palms before we book our house for this yearr! Thank you in advance for letting me know!
