    • How safe is Formosa Gardens area?

      Kissimmee 5 hours ago

      Hi, VT'ers. Me and my family are planning to spend next holidays in Orlando/Kissimmee area. We've been there several times but we always stayed in gated communities. This time we're going to rent a house near Formosa Gardens but it isn't in a gated community so I'm a little concern about safety. Should I be concern about safety? Is it safe to leave the house alone during the day/night? How safe is Formosa Gardens area? I really appreciate any advice or comment. Thanks

      activities - wildlife/glacier viewing, kayak, biking, hiking, exploring towns
      trying to spend as little time as possible in rental car
      itinerary so far is
      1. anchorage to seward - 3 days - for kenai fjord all day tour, hiking exit glacier/harding ice field, final day of hiking or biking, fishing
      2. next 3 day itinerary is where I need help - thinking either homer for 2 nights knowing that will add lots of car time
      or renting house in girdwood area for access to prince William sound tour, hiking, cooper landing, alyeska, wildlife conservation center, ??? other ideas.
      Or one night girdwood and one night north of anchorage on way to talkeetna- ideas??
      3. last night is talkeetna for denali flight seeing tour then back to anchorage for night flight out
      Or would everyone recommend 3 days seward and 3 days denali? feels like it would be a lot of driving...

      I would like to take a Mexican car into the US at the Laredo border crossing. What paperwork do I need to complete? Any handy hints? The car is not currently registered and is for export from Galveston within 30 days of crossing into the US, which I think is OK under the US temporary import rules.

      Also, can I hire a trailer and car in the US and cross into Mexico and back out again to the US, or is this just asking for a world of hurt? I'm not even sure US hire companies would even allow their cars to exit the country, even temporarily!

      I was also thinking that there might be a short bus trip tour from dallas to san antonio or somewhere else interesting -- just lasting up to 4 days or so.As i said they are quite fit so lots of walking would be okay-- but not very confident in another country(from Australia)-- thank you

    • Texans game

      Houston Apr 23, 2016 at 10:48 AM

      Going to chargers/Texans game late November. Should I stay near stadium or downtown? If downtown what area?

      I'm in my 40's traveling with buddy. We like to cab it from airport when we can because we like to drink during our stay and don't want to drive. Hou airport seems close enough to go that route. Sometimes we pick a hotel in walking distance to stadium but if downtown us better scene we would go that route instead. Prefer nice hotels with amenities like bar, restaurant, fitness center, etc. 3+ stars would be preferable.

      If you recommended downtown what part? Seems to be rather spread out. If downtown would like a place close to public transportation to game. What form would you recommend for getting to game? Train, bus, cab?

      Thanks in advance for your help!

      Temperature in Texas/South-East in the spring?

      Texas Dec 30, 2015 at 8:48 AM

      Hi there! I am planning my second road trip in the US, which me and my travel buddy are thinking about doing either in march/april or in april/may this year (I am doing all the planing, he kinda just tags along and trusts my decision). So I am wondering which one of these two alternatives are the best to do, considering the temperatures and the amount of tourist? (We are not too fund of a bunch of tourists..).

      I would prefer it not to be too hot (I've heard there's quite a bit of humidity in the south), but we don't want to be walking around in jackets and sweaters either.


      The route we are planing on doing is starting in Houston, TX, then drive through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, along the Florida Coastline down to Orlando, before taking the coastal road up to Myrtle Beach, where we'll be spending 3-4+ nights before hopping on the plane and head back home again.


      Also tips about do's and don'ts will be welcomed! The route isn't set in stone yet, changes can be done if any one has got any super tips about another/the route, it will be considered as well!


      Thanks! laugh
