    • 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

      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

      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 :)

      Hello everyone!

      I am a current freshman at Notre Dame. I would really love to make it up to Michigan State for the away football game but I am unsure as to how to get there. I heard that there is possibly a bus that is supplied by the school but I would want to stay the night, not come back right after the game. If anyone can lend any suggestions as to how I could this would be great! Thank you!

      I'm looking into planning a roadtrip for Fall of 2008 to a Norte Dame game in South Bend. Was wondering if there are any reputable groups out there that plan trips of this nature. Looking for tickets and hotel (will book air separate I would think). Once in a lifetime trip for my four brother, my father and myself. Any help, thoughts or insight would be greatly appreciated.

    • Notre Dame - To go, or not to go?

      by mcharbonnet Online Now Oct 25, 2006 at 9:40 AM

      Myself, with seven of my closest buddies, are venturing on a football road trip over the thanksgiving holiday. The plan is to fly into Kansas City for the Chiefs vs. Broncos game on thanksgiving night. Drive to Lincoln, NE for the Huskers vs. Buffalos game on Friday. Make are way to South Bend on Saturday to watch the Irsh vs. Trojans game at a Classic Notre Dame bar. And then head down to Indianapolis for the Colts vs. Eagles game on Sunday.

      While football is the main focus of our trip, nightlife, partying, atmosphere, and having a blast are major factors. So here’s the question:

      Knowing that it will be the Thanksgiving holiday and most students might be out of town, should we bypass the stop in South Bend and go straight to Indy, or does the South Bend Nightlife and atmosphere have what we're looking for?

      All Comments appreciated.

      Where to go a Dyngusing 2006?

      by Phlebas2 Online Now Apr 16, 2006 at 7:45 AM

      Was looking to see if anyone had any new suggestions on where to go for Dyngus Day this year. Im looking for a change of pace. Been to pretty much all the old standards over the years. NOT really wanting to go to the Food Bank for the pancake breafast (sorry) Was hoping to find a more out of the way safe to park starting place with a little less Polka.

      I heard that there was going to be some sort of Dyngus thing out at North Village Mall ( NVM, now that will be another sotry I'll save for later) at The Tme Out Sports Bar. Anyone know anything about this, heard something on WAOR but cant find any info.

      Anyone been to this place? I usually only go to NVM to visit the Day Old Bread Store, so I know its pretty quiet out there, and was thinking it might be a good meeting spot to park the un-designated drivers, and start Dyngusing from.
      Any ideas?

      Potawatomi Zoo - Zoo Penny Favor

      by my2kids Online Now Sep 18, 2005 at 12:56 PM

      Hello South Bend,

      My family and I stopped at the Potawatomi Zoo a two years ago while on a medical trip to NY for one of our special needs children. Our son just started making and collecting zoo pennies this year, from the zoos he visits.

      I would love to get him a zoo penny from the Potawatomi Zoo and wrap it up for him for Christmas.

      I'm not even sure this zoo has the machine to make the pennies. But if they do and anyone is willing to make us one. I would gladly pay for the amount to have the penny done plus the shipping to send it to us here in North Dakota.

      http://www.sbpark.org/zoo/zoo.htm

      Thanks so much,

      Barb
