    • 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 :)

    • 2 full days at Key Largo in mid December, how to best use our time?

      by ahzzz Online Now Nov 15, 2011 at 4:40 PM

      My wife and I will be at Key Largo for 3 nights, 2 full days available.

      We definitely want to try snorkeling if water is not too cold (will it?) and we'd also like to see check out Key West if possible.

      I saw reviews about Bahia Honda state park, how does that compare to the other one called John Pennemkemp? Obviously we won't be doing both of them to save time for more sightseeing :)

      24 hours in the Keys

      by timmy1975 Online Now Sep 11, 2009 at 10:16 AM

      I'll be in Miami for about a week this month and am considering a 24 hour jaunt into the keys.

      My wife doesn't care for long car rides, so we're looking initially at Key Largo. We're not opposed to driving further than Key Largo, but I wonder if one of the other islands has more character or value. I've heard much about Key West, but no so much about Key Largo and the others. Which Island and places do you think would be best for us considering the following:

      We like good local-flavor seafood.
      We like natural beaches without high rise hotels & shopping centers.
      We'd potentially like a good low budget snorkeling adventure. (Do you have to do the whole boat/guide thing, or is there a good place to rent gear and wade in?)
      We do NOT like resorts.
      We do NOT like overly corny Jimmy Buffet style party-bead culture.

      Thanks for any insight in advance.

    • Dolphin Therapy

      by michaelayne Online Now Jul 26, 2006 at 1:14 AM

      We are thinking of Dolphin Therapy for our daughter. There are so many to choose from but we have narrowed the choice down to Florida. Does anyone know of the Island Dolphin Care? Any experience? We know dophin therapy is not magic cure. We are taking it as a holiday and hoping the little one will have a great time with the dolphins. We found Dolphin human therapy on web as well. Any idean which one is the best? Also need some advice on accomodations? We looked at trip advisors but it is quite different posting. We quite like Ocean Pointe suites but some posting at Trip advisors said it was quite dirty an the pool wasn't nice. The most important thing to us is cleaniness . Thanks for any suggestion.

      A few of us are planning a week dive trip to Key Largo in August and with the price of hotels I thought it might be just as cheap and a lot nicer to stay in a condo. Can any locals or anyone that has been recommend a nice clean condo to stay at? I have been looking around, but its hard to tell much about them from a few pictures. I'm looking to go no higher than1200 for the week. Thanks for the help.

      Next month, I have a conference in Key Largo that ends on a Friday afternoon. I could fly straight home, or I could hang out until Sunday. (I'll be flying out of Miami.) I've never been to any Keys, but I've been to Miami and don't like it at all...also been to the Ft. Lauderdale area and would be perfectly happy never to see it again. Are the Keys more pleasant and less strip-mall-y? Should I stay the weekend, and if so, where?
