      Hello! We are visiting Hawaii for the first time and I am having some logistics problems !
      I have booked 5 nights at Disney's Aulani Resort on O'ahu... had too do that part first,
      rooms were disappearing. My question is:

      • Kauai before or after O'ahu?
      • Can we fly into Honolulu...then jump over to Kauai ( Hawaiin Air?) then fly directly

      back home from there, Kauai - Chicago? Is there a better/cheaper way to do this?

      • Most popular area of Kauai to stay in? East , West, North, or South? for walkability,

      restaurants, beaches, etc?

      Northeast USA snow areas

      Vermont Dec 2, 2016 at 6:09 PM

      I want to take my two nieces, ages 18 and 13, to someplace "up north" in the USA to see snow over the Christmas break. I have skied in years past but no more. And the girls have never skied. So that is not an activity to consider. Just want to fly into a decent main stream airport and not have to drive too far to get to perhaps a ski resort where even if there is no real snow, we will still have the artificial fluff. :-) Vermont offers some darling villages with covered bridges but those are about 2 hours from any airport. Perhaps that will be the case with any of the "guaranteed" snow areas.......a bit of a drive from an airport. So, I am relying on my team of VT experts to point me in the right direction. I am thinking 3-4 nights at a hotel / resort. I don't mind driving. Just don't want to spend much of the vacation behind the wheel. Snow boarding, taking cable cars to the top of a mountain, sledding, horse drawn carriage rides........bring 'em on.

      Have thought of Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, New York etc

How easily can we navigate the sidewalks and stores with the stroller? I'd rather carry the baby and let the others walk but their little legs get tired so quickly that might not be an option. Is there anything the kids might really enjoy in town? And lastly, is there a nice green area where the kids can blow of steam or we could enjoy a scenic walk w /or w /out the stroller?

A hat that I'll be proud to say, "I got it in Alaska". Could you guys recommend a store away from the tourist traps where I might find one?
