I'm going to Boston in a few weeks but haven't booked a hotel yet. I need to be at the convention center pretty early most days but can't afford the nearby hotels. I haven't been able to get my head around the city layout and transit options yet. Can anyone advise whether commuting by public transit from a less pricey hotel in the outer areas, say near the airport or in Cambridge would be workable and safe? Many thanks!
Guess the weather must be good as they are opening a week early and have availability July 12-19. We hiked up to Sperry last summer, as a day hike since we couldn't get reservations at the Chalet. It's a 12 mile round trip hike in one day, but they serve lunch in the dining room for hikers and the food was great, Soup, wonderful bread and pie!

I'm a single dad, finally getting away for a short break July 29th through Aug 4th. Looking for ideas on what to do, where to go. (I'm a singer songwriter, blogger, and want to hike my first 14er) I'll have a rental car and want to include a railroad trip if possible one day. Any advice appreciated. Any cool places to stay?
What's the bes way to get from the airport to the golden mile? I'm staying at the Red roof inn and I try not to take a cab from the airport. What's the best options? Bus, train?
Hi All! We are 3 females in our mid-twenties planning a road trip from Los Angeles to Austin the last week of July. Looking for advice on places to stop/see along the way. We are leaving LA on July 24 and have to be in Austin on August 1. This is what we have so far:
-Vegas, NV (not my first choice, but friends want to go)- 2 nights
-Flagstaff , AZ- 1 night
-Sedona, AZ (camp)- 1 night
-Santa Fe, NM- 2 nights
-(possibly camp in Big Bend NP)- 1 night
-Marfa, TX- 1 night
We are thinking of stopping by Faywood hot springs or White Sands in NM; possibly Carlsbad Caverns and either Guadalupe Mountains or Big Bend Nat’l Park.
Our interests vary so we are hoping for a balance of comfort (laying by the pool in Vegas should take care of that), outdoor activities (hiking West Fork trail, fishing, camping in Sedona), and experiencing local culture, music... more »
I am looking for a place to stay in a deep, lush forest for a couple days for hiking and maybe swimming / kayaking this summer, anywhere in the US or Canada. Of course, all the best, most beautiful locations are super busy.
Once in a while I used to stumble upon a luxury hotel or lodge, which is placed in a gorgeous setting, and for various reasons (say, limited access to the area and high cost of the rooms) doesn't seem to have the crowds. But now that I'm trying to plan a trip, I can't for the life of me remember any of those.
The only good option I found right is Lake O'Hara Lodge in the Canadian Rockies: very pretty location, great hiking nearby, and the only way to get there is by reserving a limited forest shuttle months in advance, hiking 7 miles from the nearest town, or staying at the lodge for $600/day. Unfortunately, the place is fully booked for the summer and fall 2... more »
I'm flying to Canada from the UK on the 15th July to stay at my Mum and Dad's house in Windermere, BC for one month. I'm coming over with 2 friends and we were planning a trip down into America for a week or possibly slightly longer.
We would be looking to start our trip around the start of August, and I think that the Seattle to San Francisco route sounds like the best bet! I have managed to borrow my Mum and Dad's truck, and we are literally planning on living out the back of it.
We're all 19, so trying to keep the cost down by taking a tent and camping out wherever we can. Can we just find a spot along the way and pitch a tent, or is this frowned upon? Also, are there camp points in/near Seattle and San Francisco for when we are at the cities (or at least somewhere to pitch a tent)?
Finally, I have a couple more questions id like to just throw out there;
1. What is the best ... more »
We are going to stay 4 days in washington dc in october, we like to walk in the evening and night outside the hotel, in which neigborhood we should look for an hotel?
Hi All! I'm in the midst of planning a last minute road trip, and one of my stops is Glacier National Park. Wondering if anyone has a camping rec? Looking for something very cheap (I'm not afraid to rough it) :) I've done some research and found a couple but just wanted to make sure I'm getting the best deal out there before I commit! Thanks in advance for all your advice! Happy Travels!!
We are leaving Canada and heading to Cape Cod at the end of July and wanted to know the best way to then travel down to Washington DC. It looks like it would be expensive to rent a car so we wanted to know people's experiences taking the train or bus between the Boston / Providence area and DC. Is it a nice bus or train ride or would it be better to spend a bit more and just get on a plane? Thanks for any advice.
Will be driving from Lake Tahoe to Yosemite on July 20th. Looking for inexpensive lodging, not camping, just outside the park for one night outside the Tioga Pass entrance.
So I'll spend a day tomorrow from 1pm to around 9pm in Cleveland. Can somebody point out some good places to visit and take pictures? Thanks in advance!
Can I drive in the US & Canada on my Australian license or do I need an International one (only away for 4 weeks)
