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!

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.

      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

      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!

      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!:)

      Hi everyone,

      It's been a while since I've written. Well it's time for another trip. I'm hoping to go to Maui to experience Hawaii for the first time with my husband

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

      Hopefully to get some ideas and not break the bank.

    • airtrain and E line subway at rush hour

      New York City Jan 2, 2017 at 8:06 AM

      Our flight from London will arrive into JFK at 4pm. I'm assuming clearing immigration/customs/collecting bags etc will take about an hour or so, meaning we will be trying to leave the airport at rush hour. Our hotel is on 42nd street and only 2 mins walk from Port authority bus station on 42nd so I was planning on getting the airtrain to Jamaica and then getting on the E line subway to 42nd street. Does this sound like a bad idea at rush hour as we will also be travelling with suitcases? There's only 2 of us and I don't want to spend a fortune on transfers, and i'm also aware that the shared transfer vans (go airlink etc) don't have a good reputation, which is why i'm leaning more towards the airtrain/subway at the moment.

      Any advice would be appreciated :-)

    • Travel advice in East Coast

      United States of America Jan 20, 2017 at 6:03 AM

      Hello Everyone,

      Thank you very much for your feedback back in 2015 regarding west coast travel advice. My trip to USA was memorable and its because of your feedback.

      Now I will be going to the east coast this year. My tentative travel date is from 26 May - 18 June. I wish to see the east coast. I don't want this trip to be a hectic one so I want to see important places and spend some time in New York just taking it easy. I know this sounds a little vague because you may ask how many days you want to spend where and so on. But I want you to guide me here as you know how many days (approx) I would have in hand. The last few days I want to do some shopping.

      I think I should at least go to Boston, New York, DC and Niagara falls. I also wish to visit few good universities there as I wish to pursue a masters in the futue.

      Your advice will be appreciated.

      Thank you.

      Cheers,
      GR

      Hello,
      Can you please help me figure out a Lookout Mountain or peak that has a marker telling the history of Billy the Kid, or maybe another outlaw from that era, used to camp and rest because they could see for miles if anyone was coming for them. To get to the top,my ou have to walk between two tall giant slabs of stone. We had to walk between those stones and through the trail and we kept going until we got to the top. There was a flat area on the top, big enough to camp out. It was a real high drop off. I THINK it was in the southern half of Oklahoma but I'm not certain. It was years ago but I rember this place I'm describing to you. And, I'm not certain that it was Billy the Kid, or another famous outlaw from that time. I Truly Appreciate Your Help! I'd love to visit there again someday! I love Oklahoma!!!

      Is I-35 still partially closed?

      Oklahoma Jul 21, 2015 at 9:53 AM

      Last month, I-35 was either flooded or had a rock slide or both, north of Ardmore, thanks to all the rains. My wife and her friends are headed up to Oklahoma City by car from the Dallas area, and I have been charged with trying to figure out if they should go up the most direct route which is I-35 (passing through Ardmore), or use the longer eastern route of up US-75 through Durant, then taking US and state highways up to Shawnee to take I-40 into Oklahoma City from the east...

      Anyone have recent info? I have looked at mapping software, which just says "construction" (there's always construction on the interstates), and the notices at the Oklahoma DOT are a month old...

I was looking at the Hampton Inn Bricktown and wanted to know if this was a good hotel and location. I was looking at the room rates and seems to be more expensive in October than September which I was surprised about. Anyway I wanted to know if there is any form of transportation from the hotel to the Medical Center. Also I should have 2 or 3 days to sightsee, is there plenty to do in this area. Quail Springs Mall would also be of interest if there it is not to far away and easy to get to. Lastly wondered what month would be best to come and what the weather is like. Thanks!!
