    • 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

      Oklahoma City Sep 14, 2015 at 1:43 PM

      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!!!

      Thank You,

      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...

      We (retired) live in Wales UK and are planning a holiday in June. (We have travelled fairly extensively in the States and prefer the friendliness of small town America to the bigger 'touristy' cities on the east and west coast). So far nothing is cast in stone except our flight to Fort Worth where we plan to catch the Amtrak up to Oklahoma City to pick up our hire car. We would obviously like to drive along Route 66 towards Tulsa but so far it's all an open book. Having grown up in the era of cowboy films, Dodge City is a must! Can anyone suggest some atmospheric places to visit geared towards the cowboy culture, old cattle trails etc. or if there are any events coming up roughly between 11th - 20th June with live country music, etc.

      I'm visiting the OU Medical Center in either September or October. I read that best hotels would be in downtown/Bricktown. 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!!
