    • 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

    • Weather November

      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

    • Travelling by rented car

      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 :)

      We're really coming this year! Tomorrow! 10/23

      by elmendorfs Online Now Oct 22, 2006 at 6:51 AM

      We planned to come to Silver City last fall, but it didn't work out. But we're coming tomorrow, 10/23. We will be driving in from Tucson in the late morning. I found some info on the "Steins" ghost town and plan to stop there. We only have tomorrow and Tuesday, so what are the "MUST DOs"? We will be staying at the Palace Hotel on Broadway (Thanks for the tip, Mitchell Hellman). I'm sure we will enjoy the historic parts of town, but we are more interested in outdoor stuff. Since our time is limited, we'd like to see the most spectacular sites this time. So any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! If we find even a fraction of what we expect, I know we'll be back again. We will probably be driving a 4WD SUV and really like getting away from civilization to look at history or the wild southwest scenery. Any ideas there will be especially helpful. I know this is rediculously late to be posting, but didn't know until yesterday that we'd be coming for sure. THANKS in advance for any hlep!

      A Few Days In Southwest New Mexico

      by elmendorfs Online Now Sep 27, 2005 at 6:21 PM

      We will be traveling to Tucson, AZ the last week of October. We have visited that area several times. And although we enjoy it very much, we're interested in exploring SW New Mexico. We enjoy mostly outdoor activities, history, and sight seeing (nature). I have enjoyed the Silver City members' pages and appreciate their tips and information. But I'd like other suggestions of places to see/stay for a day or two that are not too far from Tucson. I look forward to your replies!
