    • 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 :)

    • Naples for a holiday

      by hughese87 Online Now Feb 11, 2016 at 4:21 AM

      Hi I am looking to go to Naples in November for my 30th with my friend, and would just like to know a few things before we decide for sure.
      I have been looking at the Naples Grande Beach Resort for our hotel, can someone tell me if this is central and close to nightlife? We are not into clubs but appreciate wine, and cocktail bars and a good pub with atmosphere.
      Also how are the prices for alcohol and food are they resonable or expensive.
      Any information would be most helpful

    • Where to rent a condo near Naples?

      by RebeccaYonkers Online Now Aug 25, 2014 at 12:13 PM

      Hi, can someone help me find a condo for my parents to rent for 2 weeks late Jan 2015? They loved Naples when they were there 10 years ago, but the prices have increased quite a bit. They don't want to stay in a golf resort or the Everglades. They just want a modern condo near a mall and beach. They can still drive but they don't want to be in a car that much. Can you let me know which areas I should be looking into? Their budget is around $800 a week and as I say their preference is to be near Naples. Thank you!

      Spring break with active family with teenages

      by SusanE33 Online Now Mar 24, 2014 at 5:12 AM

      I am already starting to think about our trip next year, as I buy airfare as soon as it is available. My family loves warm weather, beach, hiking, exploring nature, and being active. Would Naples for a few days be a good fit? Thinking we would fly to the Keys for 2 nights, then drive to Naples for the rest of the week and fly home from Fort Meyers. We have never explored this part of Florida. Any thoughts?

      Dinner Sailing Cruises

      by BlindFish Online Now Aug 4, 2013 at 3:28 AM

      We had a very unique experience in 2011 in Monterey when we hired a local skipper to take us out with his sail boat and offered a simple but delicious dinner he prepared while the party of six guests were enjoying drinks and the relaxing atmosphere.

      I thought that something similar can't be hard to find on Florida's west coast between Tampa Bay and Naples but so far I was not ablte to find anything that really compares. The only option, the Naple Princess dinner Cruises seem a bit too crowded and less individual. Suggestions anyone?

      I'm new to Naples and have traveled widely. I'm a firm believer in public transportation both for its smaller environmental footprint and its function as a community builder. I want to return to NYC for a two week visit but do not want to drive my own car and pay for two weeks of parking, nor do I want to spend100 or more for round trip cab fare. Is there really no way to get from Naples to the Ft Myers Airport by public transportation? Have I missed something?

      Does anyone know whether there are plans to commence commercial flights again into Naples Airport in Florida? I live in the UK but have a house in Naples. With 5 children, not only is cost a major factor but convenience is too. Whilst I am typing, does anyone have any tips re getting cheap flights into Fort Myers (assuming that Naples is not possible)? Unfortunately I always have to travel at the height of the European season - mid July to early September, therefore costly.
