    • 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 :)

    • Crime Statistics

      by meeko99 Online Now Sep 3, 2015 at 1:07 PM

      I am from the Ft. Lauderdale area and would like to move to St. Augustine. Does anyone know why all the crime stats on St. Augustine indicate that crime is really high, way above the FL. state and US average? I'm surprised that area would have such a high rating for crime incidents. Do you know if these stats are coming from just a small pocket of areas and, if so, could someone let me know where those areas are? Thank you for any insight you could offer .

      On behalf of our new member SkipG, I enter his intended questions:

      We're expecting to enter St. Augustine, FL mid-day/early afternoon Tuesday, to get a repair specialist there aboard.

      As we don't yet know where he is, and whether he'll have someplace for us to come to, and, related to our entry, two questions:

      Are the current deep spots in the channel (I know they've been dredging) well marked?

      Are there any anchorage spots anywhere in the vicinity of the city (vs moorings)?

    • Beach advice

      by GeorgiaAnnie Online Now Mar 16, 2013 at 4:43 AM

      My family is planning to come to the area in July. We originally wanted to go to the panhandle but are worried about the June grass, which was terrible last time we were there. We have never been to St. Augustine, and although some us are very interested in the history and the Old City, most would prefer to rent a house at the beach. There are 4 adults and 4 teenagers. I have read that some of the beaches are shelly, not sandy. Which is the best beach area, and also any rental advice (not terribly expensive) would be appreciated.
