    • 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

      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 :)

      I will be in PCB June/July 2015. I will be with my husband, brother(20) and sister(18), what fun things can we get into for a decent price. We are looking for jet ski, night life, attractions other than wonderworks and ripleys (we have done those), and best places for seafood. Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated. How about some freebies to certain places? I would be more than happy to buy them from someone at a really cheap rate! :)

      I am from Australia visiting PCB in late August - I hope the beaches are open and unaffected by the oil spill! I will be staying in a beach house for 10 days and would like to know if I need a hire car to get around mainly for checking the surroundings, shopping and dining. Can anyone please give me an overview of what kind of transport is available? I am not very keen on spending up to45/day on a hire car that I will not use very much at all.

      Thank you very much for any feedback.

      So this will be my first panama city spring break and I had a few more questions. I saw on a website you can buy cards for special deals at like Club La Vela and other bars. Is this worth it or no? Also with alcohol issues what can we have on the beach, is there a limit regarding how much we can take with us on the beach and such. Sorry one more, can we have bonfires on the beach cause that would be kinda cool too and can we even go on the beach late at nite? Thanks guys I appreciate it
