      We live in Perth W.Australia and plan to visit Kona for the Ironman in October (as spectator only) and plan to be there for 2-3 weeks. We regularly spectate at 70.3s and full Ironmans in Australia/Asia, great to watch.

      Hey I was wondering if anyone knows of any cabin rentals in the Poconos or near. I'm not looking to go skiing, just horseback riding and just want that country feel! I've never been there but only live about an hour and half away. I just keep getting sponsored places when searching.. And nothing seems suitable

    • Long term parking in Laredo, then taxi to Quetzalcoatl Airport in Nuevo Laredo

      Laredo Dec 25, 2016 at 7:23 PM

      I'm searching for information on long term parking in Laredo, Tx near the border. Having a hard time finding information on where to park and how much it's likely to cost. Surely someone has done it! Can you give me some info?

      Need to take a taxi from the border to Quetzalcoatl Airport (Nuevo Laredo International). Is that do-able?

      Final question: any idea how long this likely to take? I've got a flight out from Nuevo Laredo International late afternoon and don't know exactly how to plan it, timewise.

      Thank you so much for anything you can tell me!

    • Coronado Ferry to mainland for touring?

      San Diego Dec 23, 2016 at 12:17 PM

      Two young seniors spending 4 days in San Diego in February and staying on Coronado. Will have a car. Is it advisable to take the ferry back and forth to see (walk/ taxi) some of the mainland sites? Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, perhaps, Balboa Park (Zoo), etc.? How about if we want dinner on the mainland? Or should we drive to most places? Itinerary not set yet.
      Thanks.

      Between Tallahassee Florida and Summerville SC

      United States of America Jan 8, 2017 at 5:57 PM

      I have a gap of about 4 days between my grandson's graduation in Tallahassee on Friday or Saturday and my granddaughter's wedding in Summerville SC on the following Saturday. Where can I go and stay for four days that is somewhat between Tallahassee and Summerville. I thought of Jekyll Island, St. Simons' Island, or St. Augustine, but I have been to all those places a couple of times. I've also stayed in Hilton Head for a week (hated it), and visited Savannah. I'd rather be in a small place than a big city.

    • Specific Location

      Los Angeles Jan 6, 2017 at 6:48 AM

      Hi. I posted another question about where to stay but am now more specific with areas. We will be going to Universal one day, Warner Brothers tour, doing things near Hollywood Blvd area, and then exploring other tourist things.

      Which area/hotel is better...near Universal City (Studio City hotel) or Hollywood Blvd (Hollywood Celebrity hotel), near but off Hollywood Blvd a bit (Days Inn) or Thai Town (Dixie Hotel)? We will have a car but am thinking one of those.
      Have narrowed it down to one of those based on budget and not being too far from Universal and Hollywood Blvd area. We have Hollywood Celebrity booked (but we can cancel).

    • Traveling to Door County by plane from NC

      Door Creek Jan 3, 2017 at 12:30 PM

      Hello. In August of 2017 we will be traveling from Raleigh Durham Airport, NC to Clark Lake in Door County, WI. We are frequent Southwest Airlines fliers, so we would like to use our Southwest earned miles, but are not sure of the best airport to fly to. We know we will be renting a car to reach Door County from whatever airline we select. We are thinking Green Bay or Milwaukee, but are not sure whether SWA travels to Green Bay, or if the difference in cost would make it more economical to drive a rental from Milwaukee. Looks like a 2 1/2 hr drive from there to Door county. Thanks in advance for any help

      Fall Trip 2017 Quaint with Appalchian Trail Access

      Vermont Dec 22, 2016 at 12:35 PM

      Mary and I are skipping our way along the AT this fall "doing" Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine by doing day hikes with lodging in quaint towns that have short drives to AT access points. Besides hiking we love to stroll and poke our noses into quaint little spots for shopping, eating and relaxing. Seeking a mix of remote spots with maybe a nice farm house or cabin as well as a populated small town with a quaint B&B or Inn.

      Blue Highways are preferred for travel between stops which are usually 3 days.

      So far these places seem to jump out - Grafton, Woodstock and a rural area outside of Rutland. We have no clues yet about Southern Vermont in the Green Mountain area. Comments about neighboring Delaware are welcomed!

      Routes as well as lodging tips welcomed!

      PHX Car Rental transfers, eating and shopping.

      Phoenix Dec 28, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      i am flying out of Phoenix which is an airport I've not been through previously. Can anyone advise ease of transfer from dropping off (Alamo) car hire and navigating through to Departures Terminal 3? I think it may involve a shuttle - if so how regularly do they run (6:30 - 7:30 am. Travelling alone so no one to share luggage humping with. Potentially I could check in car the night previous and use an airport hotel (would need transfer for that though?) but hoping that traffic will be reasonable at that hour in the morning on a Wednesday even if I had to navigate short stretch of I10 over Salt River? Also too early for breakfast at hotel so any suggestions in Terminal? Guessing that the shopping will be the usual gift oriented and duty free goodies - or should I save back some dollars - wishful thinking that I'll have any!

      A days road trip - Tucson to Phoenix?

      Arizona Dec 25, 2016 at 11:24 AM

      I have one day to spend heading back to Phoenix for my flight the following day. Rather than head straight up interstate I had thought about a detour to take in the Salt River area - would really like to get a view of the wild horses there if the chance arose. Could do with final night accommodation within an hour of PHX. Any suggestions for route and places to stay would be welcome. Please bear in mind that I am travelling solo so need to be a little aware of safety. Thanks everyone.

      Hello everyone,
      Me and my husband are going to travel to America for the first time. We are European citizens and we are going to travel by car. The problem is that our English skills are poor and we don't know the areas safe for living or even driving through. We are planning to stay at Casa del Sol Beach Studios. The address is 333 Palm Street, Hollywood, FL 33019. What do you think about that place and its neighborhoods? Is it safe to travel by car from Miami to Key West? East and West Florida coasts? Thank you in advance.

      July visit

      Washington State Yesterday

      Hi all

      We're planning a road trip to Washington (State) in July and I'd be interested in your views about the timing. Are we likely to encounter more crowds if we go immediately after July 4th rather than a bit later in the month, or is it just going to get busier if we leave it till the second half of the month? I do already know we should avoid Mount Rainier NP at weekends so we'll factor that into our planning.

      Thanks

      Best site for renting house or Condo Short term?

      United States of America Jan 13, 2017 at 9:22 AM

      Figured I had better ask this now, as can't later. My husband and I generally travel with a 5-th wheel trailer, but are considering maybe trying out staying in a condo, apartment, house, etc. short term instead in the coming years. This would be for a 2 - 3 week stay in the US. So far I have found HomeAway and VRBO as possible helpful sources. I would appreciate any advice as to if these are the best ones, and/or are there others that are also valuable sources.

    • Rental Car GPS replacement

      United States of America Jan 12, 2017 at 8:09 AM

      We will rent a car in fall 2017 in the USA for about 3 Weeks.

      I noticed that all the rental companies want to charge arount 150-500$ for a Navigation System. This is really much, compared to the 1500$ rental cost!!

      They will use these standart "window mount" navigation devices i guess.
      We don't want to pay that much, so i was looking for options.

      Would you reccomend buying a GPS in an eletronic store?
      I saw a lot of them for like 80-120$, and if you once have one, you can use it on all your future travels in us

      Since where not from us, a device that tells us the current speed limit would be nice!:)

    • Beach Access

      by KellyD32 Online Now Apr 2, 2014 at 4:11 AM

      It looks like our rental is closet to the Curlew Beach Access mp 11.8 (2 blocks from beach access, Memorial Ave.). I see this access has a water fall pipe and is about 6 houses down from the pier. Does anyone have any experience w/ area? I didn't realize the beach location until after renting the house for June. I was wondering if I should seek other accesses such as E. Hollowell St. and drive instead of the short walk to the beach? I am quite disappointed in finding this news out:( Advice would be appreciated.

We like to shop (unique shops, not national chains), bike, and eat. Where in the OBX would you recommend? We are thinking that it will also give us a chance to investigate whether it is a good place for a family vacation next summer. We were leaning toward Duck or Nags Head.
