    • 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 :)

      My 20 year old daughter is probably going to move to Jacksonville from Orlando and wants to go to school there. She and her cousin will be renting an apartment and are considering Woodhollow. I just read some reviews on the area and am concerned, like any normal mom, about her safety. I lived near St. Vincent's Hospital in the late 80's and didn't worry much. Any advice on best places for 20 year old women to live on the far east side of town? Thanks.

      My family and I are relocating to Jacksonville from Tallahassee florida. We are going to rent in the south side of town. After reading so many bad things about Jacksonville I am very weary I have five sons, 11,9,4,3,and 1. I have always been very protective of my children and now and afraid of even taking the relocation opportunity. Is the south side of Jacksonville just as bad. we will be located around the 5800 block of university blvd. I am hoping we are making a good choice. Thank you L. Google Tlh, fl
