    • 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

What are clothing must haves for the end of September? I was thinking of a lightweight pullover fleece or other type of pullover but wasn't sure if there is something else I should look into instead.

      Is Beaver Creek close enough to Vail?

      by utahskiman Online Now Mar 29, 2012 at 2:31 PM

      I'm looking forward to doing some spring skiing next week and I'm going to be staying in Beaver Creek. I'm just staying there because I got a good deal at a hotel there. I definitely want to go skiing in Vail, but I'm not sure how convenient it is to stay in Beaver Creek and go skiing in Vail. I'm staying at The Charter (, because of the deal and I'm sure I'll have some fun there in Beaver Creek too.

      Has anyone out there stayed in Beaver Creek and skiied in Vail? Please let me know and give me some tips! Thanks a ton!

    • Vail area 4th of July and Rafting

      by Nisa004 Online Now Apr 21, 2009 at 10:28 AM

      Hi All. Couple of questions. We are staying in Vail around the 4th of July. I'm trying to decide which 4th festival to go to. I see that Avon has their's on the 3rd, which is really nice. But on the 4th, there's festivals Aspen, Breckinridge and Frisco. Does anyone know from past experience which of these will likely be the best? We're looking for more than just a fireworks display. Something more like a street fair.

      Also, we want to get in some rafting. Can anyone recommend an outfitter that operates close to Vail? We're not looking for Cat 5's though; 2s and 3s are probably the best for us. Which area should we be looking at?

      Thanks for any help in advance.

    • Ground transportation to Denver Int'l airport from Vail

      by yida1976 Online Now Dec 1, 2008 at 1:33 PM

      Hello all,

      I am visiting Vail during holiday week (Christmas to NY) with my wife. Our friend will pick us up from Denver and go to Vail together. But we will need to find our own way back to Denver International airport either Jan. 1st or Jan. 2nd early in the morning. Our flight departs Denver 8;30am.

      I would like to ask if anyone knows a reasonable bus service early in the morning to Denver airport. We don't want to spend hundreds of dollars for fancy private charters. Public bus would be ideal.

      My email is yida76 "at" hotmail. We will appreciate any suggestion. Thanks,

      we are looking for an affordable accomodation in or around vail for 8 days for 3 people, preferably 2 seperate bedrooms. the reason why i post it here is since on the vail page it always starts at 250+ bucks per night, which is too much for us...
      so if anyone has some ideas, even if its some miles away (we got a car, up tp 20 mi no problem:) that would be great

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Vail in late September of 2005 and it will be our first time in that area of Colorado. I am a Colorado fan and have been to the Durango and Denver areas but this will be my first time in Vail. I want to explore the area while relishing the golden aspens and the cool air. I am also interested in some horsebackriding trips so if anyone knows of any good trips in the area, I would appreciate the advice. Approximately how far a drive would it be from Denver? About two hours? Thanks, I really appreciate the tips and information.
