      We are going to Denver for a few days and looking forward to enjoying some Cannabis at the end of our day.However, we have been told that most of the Hotels forbid any use of cannabis on their premises. Can anyone suggest a Hotel in Downtown Denver that will at least tolerate responsible, moderate use of weed on their property? I know we could do edibles but we are old school and love to pass a joint.

    • Help, hubby just told me he wants to go to Lancaster and surrondings

      by ConnieVa Online Now Jul 7, 2007 at 6:53 AM

      Usually when we travel I have plenty of time to research the area. Hubby mentioned last night he would love to go to Amish country. Now I know a lot of the area is "pretend" Amish. Being from Virginia I am not "green" about respect etc.

      What I really want to know is this: Looking for a motel where we can take our Maltese. He will be crated while we are out and about sightseeing. We don't need a fancy motel but don't want to stay in a dump either. It would be nice to find a place where you almost have a little cabin (for lack of a better term) but it would be fine if it were just a motel that allows pets.

      Also, want to get out and see the farmland and how the Amish live. I am used to Menonite people but hard to explain to a Texan (hubby) the difference.

      We are not into shopping but do like to see points of intrest.

Anyway... can someone tell me the name of that big (as in, they have 1,000's of 'em) basket store out east of town on Rte. 30? It was past the outlets... but I don't think as far as Gap. I thought it was called Basketville... but in searching online I can't find it at all. I bought so many great -- and inexpensive -- baskets while we lived there, I'd like to see if their stuff is available online. Thanks in advance! --Carol

      We're on our way to Lancaster, Hershey and Lebanon, PA. this summer. Trying to find a small quiet spot to stay while in the area. Enjoy old. Heard about the great Penna. Dutch cooking. Don't like the standard motels, hotels, and frilly Victorian B&B's. Maybe a farm stay...if it isn't 10 miles from every restaurant? Is there a simple old inn? Cottage with kitchenette..or breakfast included? Guess I'm a bit fussy, but don't like the impersonal, expensive and (I feel) uncomfortable glitzy tourist traps. Don't need luxury so much as comfy.

      Hi, I'm leaving for the US in 10 days (mostly around NYC) and since it would be a shame to miss the us countryside I thought maybe the area around Lancaster (PA) would be nice to see the countryside, some of those wooden covered bridges and perhaps some Amish (although I'm not expecting too much of that). My LP book and various websites on the area say that it's a really nice area to go cycling and the pictures I saw on the net only seem to confirm this, but the problem is that I couldn't find any adress (LP or net) in Lancaster or the area around Lancaster where I can rent a bicycle for a couple of days. Who can help me finding a place like that? It would be a shame being stuck on buses and so on because it looks soo great for cycling. Thank you, Bert Dosfel ps: prices on campgrounds seem rather high to me, around 20 US. Is it cheaper for a lonely traveller in a small, sad-looking tent?
