    • Compass Cove Hotel, Myrtle beach

      Myrtle Beach Jul 3, 2016 at 7:55 AM

      Help! I am about to drive 10 hrs to Myrtle Beach for July 4th. I had previously had a reservation at the Sea Mist Hotel. Upon reading the reviews, and noticed many complaints about roaches, I quickly cancelled my reservation and searched for another place. I saw good reviews for the Compass Cove Hotel and I booked there. Today, I read reviews on Trip Adviser and while many were good, I saw numerous complaints about maid service and ROACHES. I am PETRIFIED of bugs to the point that I have an exterminator every 3 weeks including the cold PA winters. Has anyone been there and experienced this? Do people in Myrtle Beach not like cleaning or something? I'm so confused

    • How would you spend 10 hours in Unalaska?

      Dutch Harbor 17 hours ago

      My husband, son (2.5 years old), and I will be visiting Dutch Harbor in September on a cruise ship. We have contacted Bobbie (Extra Mile Tours) for a tour but have not heard back from her yet. As a plan B, we are thinking of renting a car for the day. Can anyone recommend an itinerary or places not to miss?

      We love driving through beautiful scenery, stopping for photographs, viewing wildlife in their natural habitat, and learning about different cultures. I read in a previous post that Captain's Bay Road is a great place for whale watching. We were thinking about stopping at the Holy Ascension of Our Lord Christ. What else?

      Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    • Moving to Miami from Cincinnati, Ohio

      Miami Beach Jul 21, 2016 at 11:36 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I am originally from Lima, Peru and have been living in Cincinnati for almost 15 years. I am currently 24, and I speak Spanish and English (so moving to Miami wouldn't be a problem in that category). I currently have an associate's degree in Civil Engineering and will be graduating from UC next spring with a Bachelors of Science in Architecture. My goal is to move to Miami right after graduation but I'm a little concerned about finding a job in my career? I frequently visit Miami at least once a year every year and I absolutely love it! I love the culture, the food, the weather and the beach! How easy or how difficult would it be for me? What do you guys suggest that I do before I move down there? It would be me, my boyfriend and our two german shepherds moving down :)

      Thanks!

We have such a room at the Staybridge Suites in Glendale, but I get the feeling we might like to stay downtown and closer to shopping/restaurants. Thanks in advance for any insight!

    • Feedback/Suggestions needed for Portland/Seattle Trip

      Seattle Jul 21, 2016 at 1:49 PM

      The plan is to fly into Portland or Seattle and fly out of the other city.
      We will rent a car and want to definitely see the highlights that are most reasonable given our time constraints.
      I've heard the Oregon coast is amazing. Also heard about the hiking in the gorge!
      As for Washington - I know the winery Chateau St Michelle is nearby - that may be more doable.
      My boyfriend has never been to Seattle so I want him to see the market etc.
      But I would also love to see some of the whales and not sure if trying to squeeze in any of the islands is worth it or reasonable.
      We are foodies and hope to experience the each city for atleast a day a half plus some excursions.
      Any suggestions you can offer about routes to take - things to see and do and or a reasonable itinerary for 7 days is awesome. We don't want to come home exhausted but we also aren't afraid to pack a lot into a day and want some unique experiences that we can't have in other states!
      Thank you!

    • Travelling from Miami to St Pete... Public transport v Car hire?

      Florida Jul 3, 2016 at 6:53 AM

      Hi!

      I've been reading some of the discussions on here about travelling around in Florida.

      I'm going to be staying in Miami Beach, then heading up to St. Pete Beach. Is there any easy way that this can be done using public transport? I suspect from the discussions I've read so far, the answer is no, but I thought I'd have one last check!

      If travelling by car is the best option, are there any particular hire companies that have been tried and tested by participants on these forums?

      And finally, are there towns/cities on the way up that I should definitely stop in (not to stay necessarily, but just to see or take a day trip to during the week)? Naples, Venice and Sarasota have been recommended.

      And in St. Pete.... any things that shouldn't be missed, based on your own experiences? This can include things to do, places to see or places to eat/drink!

      Thanks in advance!

    • How possible is a trip to The Great Smoky Mountains from Nashville without a car?

      Tennessee Jun 28, 2016 at 7:56 AM

      Hey! I am travelling to the states in September and will be flying from NYC to Nashville around the 10th for a few days. The more research I have done about the area, the more I see there is to do outside of the honky tonks - The Smokey Mountains look incredible! How possible do you think it would be to venture out there without a car, on my own? I did look at some tours of the area but I couldn't seem to match any up to my time frame. Any advice on travel (reliability / safety) around that area would be much appreciated =)

      Hi. My teenage son and I are tagging along with my husband on a business trip he is taking to Mt. Prospect, IL. We will be staying in Mt. Prospect, but my son and I want to travel into Chicago each day to see the sights. We have Navy Pier, Sears/Willis Tower, The Field Museum, Millennium Park, and Wrigley for a Cubs game as must sees on our list. My question is about the transportation, what is the best way for us to get around?? I know there is a 7 day pass that would be the best value for each of us, but is that the same transit system that runs to Mt. Prospect? About how long each day are we looking at being on the train commuting to and from the city? Thanks in advance for your advice!

      late arrival

      arriving quite late on an evening (may 2015) at the main airport and we will need lodgings for THAT one night. already have a downtown hotel booked for nights following arrival night. question: could anybody recommend a BUDGET motel nearby the airport or, say, halfway between the airport & downtown, or even on the 'fringes' of downtown- something that would be easily accessible by cab from the airport. i have looked at a number of online maps and am finding it difficult getting oriented. lodgings i have considered all seem to be located in 'far- off' areas. we will not be renting a car. any suggestions would be much appreciated. thank you !

    • Megabus stop

      by arranlee Online Now Dec 30, 2014 at 5:29 AM

      Hi,
      I'm thinking of stopping off in Omaha for the day to visit the zoo, old market and the Bob Kerrey bridge but if I did, I would need to get the 10pm Megabus to Chicago.
      I did a quick Google search and it seems that the Crossroads Mall where the Megabus stop is located is quiet at the best of times, let alone at 10pm, so I just wondered if I am likely to be able to find the Megabus stop ok assuming there is no one around as I will be taking a bus or taxi there? And if I should be ok there as a solo traveller at that time of night?

      Thanks,
      Arran

      Zoo - Zoo Penny Favor

      by my2kids Online Now Sep 18, 2005 at 1:03 PM

      Hello Omaha,

      My family and I stopped at the Henry Doorly Zoo a few years ago while on our way back from a medical trip in Utah for one of our special needs children.

      Our son with autism just started making and collecting zoo pennies this year, from the zoos he visits.

      I would love to get him a zoo penny from the Henry Doorly Zoo and wrap it up for him for Christmas.

      I'm not sure this zoo has the machine to make the pennies. But if they do and anyone is willing to make us one. I would gladly pay for the amount to have the penny done plus the shipping to send it to us here in North Dakota.
