I will be in NYC over Xmas this year and want to go somewhere memorable for lunch with my husband and daughters (12, 16). Staying near Penn Station. Would love suggestions as I am guessing it will be way too late to book when we arrive on December 21st. It's a special day, so not too worried about price, but want somewhere that has a bit of Christmas spirit.
Just trying to find some information on the possibility of WWOOFing with a canine buddy. Has anyone attempted this before? Have you run into breed restrictions (more-so with owners than cities with Breed Specific Legislation, just plan on avoiding them altogether) or weight restrictions?
I have a "résumé" for my dog with vet records and references that I am hoping will help us along the way.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
Jodi and Hugo!
Hi! We wish to stay in Yosemite from Wednesday 7 - Sunday 12 August.
We've managed to book a campsite in Hodgdon Meadow for the first 2 nights, but haven't been able to find anywhere else after that (our budget is $90 per night for accommodation and we are more than happy to camp)
Do you think it would be ok to rely on staying at a walk-up campsite for the other 2 nights? Presumably if we get there really early it would be ok? Or is it a bad idea to rely on this? Any other ideas for where to stay?
Many thanks, we're very excited to explore Yosemite!!
I need to see a doctor, but I have no travel insurance in the states. How should I go about this to not pay out a ton of money? Any tips?
Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National park opens!

Really need ideas for a slower paced road trip , as in minimal driving but maximum activity between westchester county ny and Richmond va at least possibly onto the outer banks round trip
We are four active people mid 40s and early 20s , with mixed interests , theme parks, history etc
Love kayaking, active tours eg Segway ,keeping active - sleepy areas great for a short while but interactive stuff great for us that said however we will also need a couple of days to veg out
We have 12 days in August to have as much fun as possible any ideas how and where ?
Would appreciate any suggestions
My boyfriend and I are going to be in the Seattle area for 4-5 days in mid June. We're coming down from Vancouver BC, where we are staying with family.
We'd like to spend a couple of days in Seattle, and a day going to Mt Rainier but would like some suggestions about where else to go? It's our first time in the US and we don't drive - hence only going to Mt Rainier for a day. Ideally we'd stay there for a few days and do some hiking but there doesn't seem to be any option other than renting a car.
We're equally keen on the outdoors and quirky cool cities.
We just want to try something a bit different to London!
In Miami Beach, I saw a 45$ brunch @ the Nikki Beach.
That's cool but I wanted to know if a less expensive brunch exists, in a restaurant with an access to the beach still.
Thank you for help.
If I want to arrive in Burlington, VT by noon on a Wednesday, what time should I leave the Logan Airport area? What is the fastest way out of Boston?
Can anyone recommend a good hostel that has free parking included in San Francisco? Or anywhere else I may be able to park for free? Thanks!
Last minute MIA trip in 72 hours, looking into it as much as I can but quickly stopping by here with some qstns, appreciate all info in advance!
Looking into all types of activities and wondering which options are best, as I don't have a license and I'm heading over with my mom who won't want to drive in an unknown city. So it'll be day tours and/or taxi's.
Things I've found that we'd be interested in would be the animal VIP encounters at the zoo's/aquarium, everything and anything Cuba-related (I miss my suegra's cooking, best Cuban restaurants??), skydiving, I think the coral castle looks cool, everglades, Key West plus glass bottom boat cruise, there's a Miami city tour combination with biscayne cruise and everglades airboat, jetskitoursofmiami.com (come with tour guide?? have never jetskied)
I'm there for a week. No, I'm not looking to crowd my week with day tours every... more »
My boyfriend and I are flying into New Orleans on June 5th. We are planning on renting a car and travelling around Louisiana and Texas for two weeks. We are also thinking of going to a Rodeo in Texas.
We would appreciate any suggestion of fun places to visit. We are in our mid 20's and from Ireland.
I'm planning to travel around US by using Amtrak. I'll probably arrive in the end of August and go home in the beginning of October. I've a tentative plan, but I need some advice and opinions about it. It will be my first visit in the US and I'm a guy in the early twenties.
NY is my first destination and I'll probably stay there for 4 days. I'll definitely return later. Then I'll take a flight to SF and be there for about 4 days and I also have some thoughts about visiting Yosemite, since I've understand that it would be possible to do without a car. Want to see something more than the cities.
When I'm leaving SF I will activate my Amtrak (30 days) and go towards Seattle, maybe I should stop a few days in Portland, Oregon? I'll probably spend about 4 days in Seattle. But I also have some thoughts about going to Vancouver for a few days or Mt Rainer, I don't really know...

Apologies if this question has already been posted but I cant find the answer. We are on a bit of a whistle stop tour so only have 24 hours at the Grand Canyon, we are staying in Tusayan (Red Feather Hotel), we will arrive about midday on the Tuesday and plan to do an afternoon walk and watch the sunset, we then want to get back the following morning for sunrise and then a walk before heading back to our hotel for about midday.
1. how can we get from Tusayan to the South Rim in time for sunrise as from what I’ve read the shuttle bus doesn’t leave that early from Tusayan, only from the village. We have our own car, but I’m not sure you can drive all the way to the start of the trails?
2. I’m assuming when we arrive on the Tuesday we can get a shuttle bus from Tusayan to the park easily enough to do a 3-4 hour walk and then the bus back again af... more »
Does anyone know the cost to store a large bag at San Francisco airport for one day and (separately, some time later) for one week? I looked at the airport website - apparently there is a company that provides the service, but they don't list the prices.
