So many posts request the impossible - that a bunch of people who have never met you magically intuit how much you have to spend and what will make you happy on vacation, generally planning out your route for three months and helping you get discount flight reservations.
So, what can you do to get great travel advice?
1. Do your homework
The web is filled with basic information like how far it is from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, or how to…

We have two weeks holiday and have decided on America! We will be visiting Washington DC as we have friends there.
We want to visit one or two other places too but aren't sure where - not NY as we've been before.
We had thought about Boston but aren't sure if there's not much to see/do. Nashville/Memphis is another option as is New Orleans. We've also mentioned Philadelphia and Baltimore.
With just two weeks time is quite right but we are happy to do internal flights.
A friend and I (from Canada and France) are going to Yosemite from Sacramento on the 7th til the 9th. We have an airbnb with one available place and we will rent a car in Sacramento, don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested!
Also if you are interested in going to some National parks around Las Vegas (Death Valley, Grand Canyon and more) in May (maybe June), we also plan to rent a car from Las Vegas and we have one or two available seats!
See you maybe!
Hey - just thought I'd post this reliable link to the Sierra Club's schedule of activities - for those of you who might be in SoCal and want to hike with others. You can of course find groups and scheduled hikes on meetup but you don't really know what you're getting.
The Sierra Club dayhikes are open to members and non-members - and it's really worth hitting the trail with experienced folks from all, ahem, walks of life (college students, aerospace engineers, super-fit retirees). Hikes are…
We are staying in Boston next weekend and we are looking for hotels.. but I only see super expensive hotels still available... does anyone know a reasonale priced hotel?
Doesn't have to be fancy, but good bed and shower.
I am taking my daughter to Sedona and the Grand Canyon for her 18th birthday. We are flying into Phoenix on Tuesday the 14th, arriving at 9:30am. We are renting a car, then heading to straight to Sedona. We will also be visiting the Grand Canyon, then flying out of Vegas on the 18th about 5pm. I would love suggestions on what not to miss between the two areas (Sedona-Vegas). Love anything nature related, so trails, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, deserts, etc.. Not interested in hanging out in…
