    • 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

    • Weather November

      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

      Many thanks for so many questions

    • Travelling by rented car

      Miami Feb 16, 2017 at 4:55 AM

      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 :)

      We are driving from Chicago to visit my sister and her family for Thanksgiving in Hutchinson and staying in Wichita. Could you give me any advice on what we should do or see on the way and what we can do when we are in town? We plan on shopping for black Friday and possibly going out to eat a few times. We love exploring new cities.

      Around the airport

      by Worldtraveler Online Now Sep 19, 2011 at 1:10 PM

      Any tips on good places to eat close to the airport in Wichita? By close I mean "walking distance." By walking distance I mean "a 2-mile radius without having to jaywalk."

      I used to go to flight training in Memphis and after a couple of years ended up knowing all the ins and outs of the area.
      But since our management changed our training location to Wichita, everything's new.

      Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

    • Gluten free good

      by NancyCrawford Online Now Jun 30, 2006 at 10:53 PM

      I belong to the celiac support group and missed their last dinner since I live in Hutch and can't travel much. I rember before I got celiac sprue how great your food was. I heard from the support group you put a list together. could you plese email it to me? I'm planning on coming there tomorrow to eat, shop and go to the Warren. thanks in advance for your help, it's so hard to find somewhere to eat and feel like a normal person and part of a group.
      We admire the time it took to help the group and future undiagnosed celiacs. There also have 3 kinds of gluten free beer available that you could order and probably sell quite a bit of, if you would like their names let me know. thanks, Nacy Crawford.
