    • How would you spend 10 hours in Unalaska?

      Dutch Harbor 13 hours ago

      My husband, son (2.5 years old), and I will be visiting Dutch Harbor in September on a cruise ship. We have contacted Bobbie (Extra Mile Tours) for a tour but have not heard back from her yet. As a plan B, we are thinking of renting a car for the day. Can anyone recommend an itinerary or places not to miss?

      We love driving through beautiful scenery, stopping for photographs, viewing wildlife in their natural habitat, and learning about different cultures. I read in a previous post that Captain's Bay Road is a great place for whale watching. We were thinking about stopping at the Holy Ascension of Our Lord Christ. What else?

      Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    • Compass Cove Hotel, Myrtle beach

      Myrtle Beach Jul 3, 2016 at 7:55 AM

      Help! I am about to drive 10 hrs to Myrtle Beach for July 4th. I had previously had a reservation at the Sea Mist Hotel. Upon reading the reviews, and noticed many complaints about roaches, I quickly cancelled my reservation and searched for another place. I saw good reviews for the Compass Cove Hotel and I booked there. Today, I read reviews on Trip Adviser and while many were good, I saw numerous complaints about maid service and ROACHES. I am PETRIFIED of bugs to the point that I have an exterminator every 3 weeks including the cold PA winters. Has anyone been there and experienced this? Do people in Myrtle Beach not like cleaning or something? I'm so confused

    • Moving to Miami from Cincinnati, Ohio

      Miami Beach Jul 21, 2016 at 11:36 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I am originally from Lima, Peru and have been living in Cincinnati for almost 15 years. I am currently 24, and I speak Spanish and English (so moving to Miami wouldn't be a problem in that category). I currently have an associate's degree in Civil Engineering and will be graduating from UC next spring with a Bachelors of Science in Architecture. My goal is to move to Miami right after graduation but I'm a little concerned about finding a job in my career? I frequently visit Miami at least once a year every year and I absolutely love it! I love the culture, the food, the weather and the beach! How easy or how difficult would it be for me? What do you guys suggest that I do before I move down there? It would be me, my boyfriend and our two german shepherds moving down :)

      Thanks!

    • Two bedroom hotel suites in downtown Denver

      Denver Jul 14, 2016 at 10:25 AM

      Flying into Denver for two nights before exploring other nearby areas. Looking for a two bedroom (not one bed, one pull out sofa) suite in a hotel downtown. We have such a room at the Staybridge Suites in Glendale, but I get the feeling we might like to stay downtown and closer to shopping/restaurants. Thanks in advance for any insight!

    • Feedback/Suggestions needed for Portland/Seattle Trip

      Seattle Jul 21, 2016 at 1:49 PM

      The plan is to fly into Portland or Seattle and fly out of the other city.
      We will rent a car and want to definitely see the highlights that are most reasonable given our time constraints.
      I've heard the Oregon coast is amazing. Also heard about the hiking in the gorge!
      As for Washington - I know the winery Chateau St Michelle is nearby - that may be more doable.
      My boyfriend has never been to Seattle so I want him to see the market etc.
      But I would also love to see some of the whales and not sure if trying to squeeze in any of the islands is worth it or reasonable.
      We are foodies and hope to experience the each city for atleast a day a half plus some excursions.
      Any suggestions you can offer about routes to take - things to see and do and or a reasonable itinerary for 7 days is awesome. We don't want to come home exhausted but we also aren't afraid to pack a lot into a day and want some unique experiences that we can't have in other states!
      Thank you!

    • Travelling from Miami to St Pete... Public transport v Car hire?

      Florida Jul 3, 2016 at 6:53 AM

      Hi!

      I've been reading some of the discussions on here about travelling around in Florida.

      I'm going to be staying in Miami Beach, then heading up to St. Pete Beach. Is there any easy way that this can be done using public transport? I suspect from the discussions I've read so far, the answer is no, but I thought I'd have one last check!

      If travelling by car is the best option, are there any particular hire companies that have been tried and tested by participants on these forums?

      And finally, are there towns/cities on the way up that I should definitely stop in (not to stay necessarily, but just to see or take a day trip to during the week)? Naples, Venice and Sarasota have been recommended.

      And in St. Pete.... any things that shouldn't be missed, based on your own experiences? This can include things to do, places to see or places to eat/drink!

      Thanks in advance!

    • How possible is a trip to The Great Smoky Mountains from Nashville without a car?

      Tennessee Jun 28, 2016 at 7:56 AM

      Hey! I am travelling to the states in September and will be flying from NYC to Nashville around the 10th for a few days. The more research I have done about the area, the more I see there is to do outside of the honky tonks - The Smokey Mountains look incredible! How possible do you think it would be to venture out there without a car, on my own? I did look at some tours of the area but I couldn't seem to match any up to my time frame. Any advice on travel (reliability / safety) around that area would be much appreciated =)

    • Mt. Prospect to Chicago

      Chicago Jul 20, 2016 at 1:04 PM

      Hi. My teenage son and I are tagging along with my husband on a business trip he is taking to Mt. Prospect, IL. We will be staying in Mt. Prospect, but my son and I want to travel into Chicago each day to see the sights. We have Navy Pier, Sears/Willis Tower, The Field Museum, Millennium Park, and Wrigley for a Cubs game as must sees on our list. My question is about the transportation, what is the best way for us to get around?? I know there is a 7 day pass that would be the best value for each of us, but is that the same transit system that runs to Mt. Prospect? About how long each day are we looking at being on the train commuting to and from the city? Thanks in advance for your advice!

      Thanksgiving brunch at grand geneva resort?

      by crabbypinchy Online Now Nov 20, 2014 at 9:26 AM

      I am making Thanksgiving brunch reservations today for brunch at the grand geneva resort and spa. I just saw it is $42 pp...which is aalmost the same price as brunch at the signature room in Chicago. anyone care to confirm this is worth the price? or is there another nearby place for a wonderful breakfast...$42 for one person is a little high for me. For 2 people is more reasonable. Here is link: grandgeneva.com/activities-l...

      Advice for Thanksgiving eve

      I decided to sleep in on thanksgiving morning for the first time in years and not run a turkey trot when i saw a Groupon for the grand Geneva resort. After reading all the less than stellar reviews, i'm almost regretting my $100 purchase for one night. I'm coming up with my 30 and 37 y.o brothers and we just want to eat good food, relax and chow down on good breakfast and lunch around lake Geneva on thanksgiving morning. Can you folks give me tips to get away if the resort stinks?

      My husband and I will be making a trip to the Grand Geneva next weekend and I am thinking about skiing. Neither of us have ever been, would a lesson be necessary?

      Also, I have a rather intense fear of heights will the chair lifts be a problem? About how far off of the ground do they go?

      How much time should we allow for skiing?

      by mikieguns Online Now Sep 26, 2006 at 4:12 PM

      Hi fellow travelers! Chicago guy here and I am planning on taking my wife for a getaway weekend in late October. I've chosen Lake Geneva. After much research I've decided that I'd like to stay at a hotel close to the action (i.e. the lake, downtown, etc) but also one that still has a bit of charm. I've narrowed it down to 3 and need to get your opinion of which one is the best! Obviously a nice romantic weekend is what I am looking for, but I also want to be able to walk nearby to the fun shops and bars! I also want to do horsebakc riding and maybe some other activities. Currently I am looking at the Bella Vista Suites, The Cove, and the Milcreek Hotel. Anyone have any experience with these places and can help me pick?? I decided to stay away from the further away quieter B&B's (like lazy cloud or french country inn) and also decided to stay away from the Grand Geneva. that has left me with these 3. Let me know if I am missing a good one! thanks!
