    • 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

      I will not have a car. Any advice?

      I have never been to St. Louis before and can use some help. I'm going to be in St. Louis for a concert series at Powell Symphony Hall. (I won't have a car.) I'm booked at the Four Season's. I gather that it is one of the nicest hotels in town, and I'm thrilled to be able to stay there, I'm just a little concerned about the location. How convenient is it to the concert hall, shops, public transport...? The casino next door is not of interest at all.

      I wouldn't mind cabs at night but would like to have access to public transport during the day so that I can get to other areas and in from the airport.

      If there is another luxury property that I should be looking at? I'd appreciate any feedback.

      Hi, I'm in still filling in the blanks of my connect-the-dots tour of the places in the USA which we have never visited before. St. Louis will be Days 25-27 on our way home to PA. For years I've heard about the Italian restaurants in The Hill section of StL and now I would appreciate specifics. We're looking for good, real Italian food that is not a pizzeria or chain, and is also not "exquisite" dining. Entrees between20-$30 would be fine. Also, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that restaurants in the Hill are closed Sunday. The tips I've been getting from our VT friends around the country have kept me all pumped up in the planning. We expect to leave PA the week after Labor Day for a 5,000 drive. It's a good thing that my wife and I "play nice". Thanks, Irv
