    • 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

It seems like a bad idea for me, and a few volunteers, to drive 30 miles each way to the airport, on the bookends of a 3 day getaway weekend!

I'm flying from Syracuse to Newark then from Newark to Heathrow on the 9th December 2014 (I know it's Christmas season and there're bound to be some issues). But I also recall that usually flights from Syracuse landed in Newark of Terminal C and departs from this same terminal for flights to Heathrow.

      A) Because hotels are cheaper in NJ areas
      B) Because of the wedding :D

      My question is. What specific area do you recommend me to stay, so I can get a public transport to New York every day. If so, what kind of transport is a good option.
      My idea is to leave every morning to NY and come back to the the hotel at night.

      To all:

      First, let me thank you in advance for any answers or comments on my question.

      I will be traveling via Amtrak from Wilmington, DE to EWR to catch an international flight.

      Amtrak has a connection in Northern New Jersey which they call the Newark Airport connection.

      My questions are:


      How easy is the connection to the connecting train to EWR?

      How long to the terminals?

      We will have several pieces of luggage...problem with space for luggage and/or help available?

      I presume that getting to the international terminal shouldn't be more difficult to any of the other terminals...correct?

      In general, I am basically wondering whether taking the train to EWR from Wilmington is easy and worth it?

      Anyone adding some insights will be much appreciated!

      Hi!

      I thought somebody might have an idea for us here...

      Here's our problem: We are going to the Caribbean in November via Newark and on the way back from there we are going to spend a few days in NYC. Which means we need summer clothes for the British Virgin Islands but we also need a winter coat for the days in New York. I am not too excited about the idea of taking my winter coat with me all the time because I am sure it won't fit into my bag and I am sure I will be stared at if I wear it on the way from the airport to the hotel in the USVI and especially on the ferry to the BVI.

      Is there any luggage storage facility in Newark airport where I could leave the winter stuff for 10 days? Any other ideas?
