    • 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

      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

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 :)

    • Ride from Denver to Telluride at night?

      by tchristinestt Online Now Aug 2, 2013 at 5:32 AM

      We arrive to Denver at 11pm. We thought we could drive to Telluride that same night (3 of us) and arrive the next morning. That ways we would have an extra day in Telluride/vicinity to enjoy. We would enjoy the ride back to Denver 8 days later, during the day and taking our time.
      Is it OK to drive to Telluride at night. We heard that deers can be an issue.
      Any comments????
      Thank You.

      Durango to Telluride in Winter - Open Roads?

      by swdke Online Now Jan 5, 2010 at 8:28 AM

      Okay, I know, this is a dumb question, but are the roads open from Durango to Telluride in winter? I am interested in a ski trip to Telluride and I see that Montrose is the closest airport, but air fares there are fare higher than Durango. So, I thought I'd fly into Durango. Yes, I assume the road is open to Telluride, but I am aware that some roads in Colorado over passes and such are closed for winter, and I am not familiar with this area enough to know what's open and what's closed. In fact, the Telluride ski are website only refers to Montrose as being the airport to fly into, and with cheaper flights to Durango, surprised that Durango is not mentioned. So here I am, asking that if I fly into Durango, will I be able to drive to Telluride? Thanks.

      Also, what is the drive time between Durango and Telluride?

      Questions about Telluride

      by beatchfre Online Now Oct 16, 2007 at 3:39 PM

      Hi guys,

      I live in Santa Fe, NM and my parents will be visiting me from Scotland in a few weeks. I'd like to take them on a wee road trip up to Colorado - the places that I'm looking at are Aspen, Telluride, and Ouray. I've been to Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, and Durango so I'm kinda familiar with the roads... and the amount of deer/elk that I can expect to run in front of me :-)

      My old man really wants to go to Aspen - I think he's watched too many movies and expects to bump into Hollywood's A-list. None of us ski! Well, I can ski, but I can't stop. We're not looking for fancy museums or art galleries - just nice pictureseque towns, with some local shops, decent bars with live music, not too expensive*. What would be your order of preference for our trip...

      TRIP 1: Drive from Santa Fe->Silverton->Ouray->Telluride->Santa Fe (2 or 3 nights).
      TRIP 2: Drive from Santa Fe to Aspen (2/3 nights).

      If TRIP is the preference would you recommend spending both nights in Telluride, both nights in Ouray, or one in each?

      Thanks in advance for any replies :-)


      * by expensive, I mean I don't want to spend more that200 on a hotel room and50 a head for a meal.

I've lived in Boston and Portland so my judgement is a bit skewed), jobs ( i have a few prospects, but i can always use more), cheap place to stay the night I get in, etc. Basically any advice at all would be helpful!
