    • 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

    • Considering moving to Shreveport from Louisville, KY

      by MsChopz85 Online Now Jan 14, 2014 at 12:17 PM

      Hello! I've lived in the Derby City all my life, other than a short time I lived in Batesville, MS, & I'm beginning to feel that my family & I need to relocate. We're a family of 5 (hubby, 3 young sons, & myself), & I would really like to find a place in Louisiana to plant roots & raise my children. An ideal place would be somewhere with lots of family activities, public schools that excell in education, safe (I'm aware that no town can be completely safe but a nice place to raise children), several job opportunities, & a place where low-income families can still thrive & strive to better their lives. I've never been to Louisiana but something has always drawn me to the state & I would like to raise my family there. My initial choice locale was New Orleans, but I'm willing to move to any of the other cities, so long as the above mentioned criteria are in place. If anyone has any helpful advice, I would greatly appreciate the feedback. Thanks in advance, Erin G.

      Can anyone give me some information on Sam's Town Casino/hotel in Shreveport. We go to Sam's Town in Las Vegas each year and love it there and was wondering if the one in Shreveport is as nice and as well ventilated. My husband has COPD and can't be in a REAL smoky atmosphere. Also, do they have simulcast betting? I know in Vegas, the drinks are free while you are playing, is this true in Shreveport? Thanks for any input you can give me. If you know something else I should know about Sam's please let me know. Your input is greatly appreciated.

      by Febman Online Now Jun 16, 2008 at 7:23 AM

      Are there any busses runing from Dallad, Texas to your casino? We used to play twice a week. Since the bussess stopped service to Shreveport and from Dallas, Texas my wife and I haven't been able to go to your casino. How can we get there, we are both in late 70's and early 80's. Can't drive on the road anymore. So that form of transportation leaves us no alternative other than casino busses. Or are their?
