    • 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 :)

      We will be staying on West Elkham Circle, Are we allowed to walk from the Esplanade along the water on the walkway if we are not staying on a boat, or in one of the condos on the south side of Elkham? We are staying in Gulf of Palms, across the street.

    • Sanibel, Captiva, Marco or Ft. Myers beach

      by brehm020 Online Now Mar 8, 2011 at 11:31 AM

      My wife and I are going down to the gulf side of Florida this December with another couple. We want to be on a nice beach, with access to 20-somethings nightlife (i.e. fun bars...but not too crazy). I'm considering Sanibel, Captiva, Marco and Ft. Myers beach, and am wondering where would be the best fit for the four of us? Any help is greatly appreciated!

      My 93 yr old [step]mother-in-law wants to give us a first floor beachfront Week 34 last week in August]timeshare [2 BR]at the Club Regency on Marco Island. I've trolled the Net and gleaned a lot of information about the place, but I am suspicious. Her husband bought it years ago and they rented it out when they could but they never visited it. Hed listed it for sale a few years before he died, but it never sold. I'm interested in it for business clients but I don't want to take on a dog and subject others to it, especially those who pay my bills. My investment would be minimal in terms of bucks, but I could lose bucks with the wrong type place.

      Does anyone have first hand personal knowledge of the Club Regency? It appears to be a 2 story troglodyte in a neighborhood of burgeoning high rises. Is my paranoia or suspicion well-founded about this place??

      Hi, We are staying at the Marco Island Hilton Resort for two weeks at the end of September, from the UK. We would really appreciate any information on restaurants (reasonably priced) near the hotel where we can eat out. Also any other advice on things to do on Marco Island would be really appreciated.
