    • 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

      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 :)

      California Feb 1, 2017 at 1:44 AM

      I know I asked yesterday about Florida but we are also looking at Palm/Desert Springs California - what is the weather liable to be like in November

      Will the roads be snow free to Las Vegas and what is the weather liable to be like in Vegas in November.

      Plan to possibly fly to Los Angeles - use Desert/Palm Springs and tour from there and possibly take a few days out to visit Vegas - could even fly into Vegas if the flights were cheaper

      Many thanks for so many questions

      by jmdjmd Online Now Jul 26, 2004 at 12:54 AM

      Greetings, My fiance and I will be staying in a condo in the Poipu area (Kuhio Shores) this October -- the condo complex does not have a pool on its grounds as far as we can tell. Are there weekly or day guest passes at local resorts with pools in case we'd like to take a dip? How do the larger resorts allow access? wristbands, room keys? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

      Popoi??

      by sandy5 Online Now Jan 18, 2004 at 10:40 AM

      I am going to Kauai for the 1st time in May. I have been to Maui before and loved it. I have heard how nice Kauai is and presently looking through brochures and internet sites to find out about where to stay. I think I have it narrowed down to Poipu and maybe the Sheraton. Where are most of the restaraunts and things to do. Otherwords what would be the heart of the island if any?I understand there is more chance for sunshine on the south side of the island which is something I want. Also I plan on playing golf there. Thanks

    • Kauai Weather in early December.

      by George_Shaw Online Now Jul 25, 2003 at 8:31 AM

      I am planning on visiting Kauai in December, and I have read that the North Shore (Princeville) receives more rain than the South Shore (Poi'pu). My question is does more rain in December mean lots of overcast skies and constant rain throughout the day? I'm really the "bright sunshine" guy who loves lush greenery (not just beaches) but want to make sure that I don't get stuck/caught in rainy days (complete washouts!) in Princeville. Thanks, George
