    • 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

    • Weather November

      California Feb 1, 2017 at 1:44 AM

      I know I asked yesterday about Florida but we are also looking at Palm/Desert Springs California - what is the weather liable to be like in November

      Will the roads be snow free to Las Vegas and what is the weather liable to be like in Vegas in November.

      Plan to possibly fly to Los Angeles - use Desert/Palm Springs and tour from there and possibly take a few days out to visit Vegas - could even fly into Vegas if the flights were cheaper

      Many thanks for so many questions

    • Travelling by rented car

      Miami Feb 16, 2017 at 4:55 AM

      Hello,
      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 :)

    • travel from Boston

      by bzribee Online Now Jul 21, 2011 at 4:20 AM

      Hi,

      I live in Southern CA and will be traveling to Nantucket in early September, 2011. I have figured out it's an island (duh!) and that I'll need to get there from Boston. I understand I can fly there or take a high speed ferry. Could someone tell me how I get to the ferry (and which one) from the airport? It is all a mystery to me! And, is Martha's Vineyard on Nantucket, or v.v. and how does this all relate to Cape Cod? Hyannis?

      Thanks for ANY help you can give me!

    • Help in identifying my photos in Nantucket

      by MartySpec Online Now Oct 14, 2005 at 12:08 PM

      I recently visited Cape Cod and Nantucket, on a bicycling trip sponsored by Elderhostel. The trip was excellent in every respect, including virtually perfect weather.

      While in Cape Cod, we stayed in Brewster at the Ocean View Resort, which we especially enjoyed.

      During the trip, I shot many photos, which I intend to share with my traveling companions. However, in a number of cases, I can't recall exactly what it was that I was photographing.

      My photos are posted on the Internet, and can be viewed as a "slideshow" at the following web address:
      community.webshots.com/album...
      Each individual image has an image number, plus a caption that appears with each image in the slide show view.

      I would appreciate your looking at the photo caption and emailing back captions for those images that are not identified, as well as any suggestions you might have for improved captions. Thanks in advance.

      I'm looking for some VT personal experiences on the Island. Primarily, what are the best hotels on the Island? Also, what is a good length of stay? We were thinking about staying 6 nights but we're nervous that we might get bored after a while. Any info would be appreciated!
