    • 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

      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 :)

      Flying to Florida

      by grandmaR Online Now Dec 26, 2012 at 7:54 PM

      Is there any way to fly to Ocala without going to Orlando and renting a car to drive there? I hate driving in the Orlando area. Is there any nearby airport that would be maybe farther away but easier to drive from/to. Like Jacksonvile, Tampa or Gainesville?

    • Ocala or the Beach

      by Shadybeach Online Now May 1, 2006 at 4:44 PM

      We are going to Ocala for Mid May, myself, husband, 13 yr old daughter and my mother. We would like to go somewhere close by for waterfront activities.
      Are there any beaches within driving distance. We'll be in Ocala for the day and then can go west to the Gulf or east to the Atlantic. We would like to relax and enjoy something on the water that doesn't cost a fortune. We are looking for inexpensive lodging with two separate bedrooms. Thank you for any advice you might have.

      Canoes / Tubing near Ocala.

      by colbeck100 Online Now Jan 27, 2005 at 4:08 PM

      I shall be travelling up to Ocala from Tampa in August. I would like to go to one of the Springs in the Ocala area. I have heard that Juniper and Alexander Springs are best but perhaps someone in the area or in the VT community can help to inform me of somewhere better. I have tried to research this without much success so far any tips would be appreciated. Thanks Paul
