    • 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

    • Arizona/Utha in Fall

      Arizona Jan 29, 2017 at 9:49 AM

      Hi :)

      I need some advice for travel. I want to go to Las Vegas this fall and then drive by car to Grand Canyon and etc.
      My plan looks like this:

      First Day - Pick up the Car, drive to Hoover Dam and then to Tusayan

      Second Day - Visit Grand Canyon. We are not really "hiking people", so everything that takes more thatn 2hrs round trip is probably to much.But as i seen on then internet, most places are pretty accesible by car or shuttle.

      Third Day - Drive to Page, visit the Slot Canyons arount 11 AM (tours start then). and visit Horseshoe Bend in the afternoon

      Fourth Day - Drive from Page to Bryce Canyon (about 3hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Fifth Day - Visit Bryce Canyon

      Sixt Day - Drive to Springdale for Zion NP (about 2hrs). Anything nice to see on the way there?

      Seventh Day - Zion NP (visit The Narrows)
      Eight Day - Zion NP - What should we do too?
      Ninnth Day - Spend morning in Zion then drive back to Vegas, Anything nice to see on the way there?

      What do you think, is it a good plan? Should we spend less/more at a specific place? We have read that roads in this area are usually straight and not crowded, so driving shouln't be a hussle.

      Any help is appreciated

We plan to hire a car. Some friends suggested that we visit the Rhode Island area, before heading north to Maine. Do any of you know the area, and if so: is it worth driving down there? Any suggestions as to what areas we should visit in MAine, affordable places to stay (and how to find them), good websites to visit would be very welcome. We'd like to have some relaxing days by the sea, do some hiking and visit unusual museums and other interesting places. Any suggestions would be very welcome! Best wishes from Anne and family

      Mushroom picking

      Maine Dec 25, 2014 at 9:07 AM

      Hello VTers,

      I am looking for some advice of where to stay in Maine if I want to go mushroom picking. I will be traveling with a 3 year old. If anybody knows of any specific lodges or B&Bs that would be great. If not, would anybody be able to suggest an area of Maine that's good for mushroom picking. I'll have a cat with me so driving is not an issue.

      I'm trying to show my daughter and my wife the beauty of a northern forest. I'm originally from Belarus and it's pretty far north sp the forests have more pine trees moss and of course chanterelles which is what I'm looking for.

      I hope this is not too complicated and thank you to everyone in advance.
