    • 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

    • Travelling by rented car

      Miami Feb 16, 2017 at 4:55 AM

      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 :)

    • Any bus/train transportation I can take for a travel like this? urgent please help asap

      by joebr1993 Online Now Apr 6, 2014 at 11:46 AM

      Hi I'm trying to figure out a way to travel from West Palm Beach FL to Fort Pierce by some kind of bus/train transportation. I just want to know if anyone can help me out with finding an affordable way to travel this. Anything cheaper than Greyhound because honestly $24 each way is just too much when I have not much money on me. I need to get there to take a placement test for a College I plan on attending over there and it already costs me $10 to just take the test so you can see I'm spending a great deal of money that I don't really have to spend like that.

      Hotel for Son's Birthday Present

      by DeniseGannon Online Now Jul 16, 2010 at 10:55 PM

      My 28 year old son and his girlfriend will be coming to West Palm Beach to see Dave Matthews at the end of July. I'm looking for a reasonable hotel in the downtown area by Clematis St. and City Place as I believe they are close to bars and restaurants. I believe my son and I were at Clematis street many years ago, and loved the atmosphere. I can't seem to figure out what hotels would be a good choice. Also, they will need transportation to and from their hotel and the Cruzan Ampitheater...any ideas? This is my b-day present to him, and I would love for it to be special...He lives in Orlando, and I live in Illinois! :(

    • Memorial Day Weekend in WPB for a young couple

      by Aigerim Online Now Apr 6, 2009 at 12:39 PM

      My bf and I are thinking about booking a memorial day weekend in WPB. Originally we were thinking about South Beach, but we both have already been there, and almost all hotels are already booked. So, we decided to check out a new place. Neither of us have ever been to WPB and know nothing about it... We are both in mid 20's, looking for a nice and affordable getaway, where we can stay by the beach/pool during the day, have a nice dinner in the evening, and go out dancing at night.

      Is WPB even a right place for us to look at? And if so, where would you recommend staying/dining/going out?

      Any advice is highly appreciated!
      THANK YOU!

      My boyfriend and I are planning a long weekend in West Palm Beach next weekend (March 16-19) and would love some tips from locals or people who have travelled there before. We are from NY and this is our first time there and we are really excited! We will be staying at the Brazilian House (we won that in a contest!) and hear that it's a great martini town!

      We would love info on restaurants, bars, nice beaches, shops, and maybe a loungey place to dance to cool music. I also have one day alone on Monday where I could explore a new area too. We are in our mid 30s and would love places that cater to our age group.

      Any info would be GREATLY appreciated.

    • Beaches and other things

      by SFClarky Online Now Jan 14, 2007 at 8:49 AM

      I'm staying in WPB for 8 nights in March. I've been there a couple of times, but can't find really nice beaches because it seems they're all private or at the back of hotels. I'm staying near the Clematis Street area. Is it possible to just walk through one of the fancy hotels and go on the beach?

      Also, any good suggestions for really nice restaurants. There always seems to be just about 2 or 3 listed on the tourist web sites.

      And finally, any ideas for good excursions (by car or not). How long would it take to drive to Key West?

      Many thanks. I'm a new member and glad to have found this site.

    • Singer Island

      by Online Now Dec 29, 2006 at 8:58 AM

      My husband is interested in purchasing a condo in Sugar Sands on Singer Island. I'm wondering is anyone is familar with the area and could advise as to the pluses and minuses- It's right over the bridge from Rivera Beach so I'm really concerned about the safety issues. I know that it is an over 55 place, but are the owners closer to 60 or 80? Also it's a pretty small development and I'm wondering as to the number of activities available there- art classes, excercise, bridge etc? Since it's across from the ocean are the taxes for new residents out of sight?

The work location is on lake boulevard, but we have no problem living even 20 miles away, as long as we can sleep peacefully at night and can walk on the street without having to worry about getting robbed or not finding the car!! We do not have kids yet, but planning to start a family soon, so safety is number 1 issue for us! We would appreciate any advice about areas/complexes to live/not live in.

      Which part of palm beach county is the cheapest to live in?
      How often do hurricanes occur? (We have mild weather in Ireland so that is worrying me a bit)
      I'm a pentecostal Christian - does anyone know of any suitable churches and their web site so I can check it out?

    • Looking for Pitbull friendly living

      by chris14201 Online Now Jul 2, 2005 at 2:27 AM

      Hello, I am moving from NY to West Palm Beach, FL with my girlfriend in 2 weeks for a new job. My girlfriend just returned home from Florida where she found an apartment in Wellington and has told me there was no place she could find that would allow my dog. She said the realtors laughed at her when she told them that I owned a pitbull mix. I have a wonderful pitbull/lab mix that wouldn't hurt a fly. The townhouse she found (and subsequently put a deposit on) has strict breed restrictions and refuse to consider letting my dog live there.

      I am wondering if there is some kind of place where I can keep my dog and visit him on a daily basis until I am able to buy a home (around 1yr). I am willing to pay for a service such as this, but am unable to find anything of the kind.

      Any suggestions on what I can do to keep my dog would be welcome. I do not want to have to give him to someone I do not know or do not trust. I have no candidates outside of this realm at this point :(
