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…

Hey everyone, I'm new to LP and to travelling! I'm 19 years old and I'll be visiting the west coast of the US for 3 weeks between 22nd August - 16th September. I'm a new traveller so I am just trying to get some advice from a load of different sources. I have sufficient funds but I plan to be on a budget. I have made a rough guide of where I want to go:
Fly into Seattle, Washington - 22nd August
Stay for 4 days (what sort of things are there to see in Washington??)
Get greyhound bus to Portland…
Looking for ideas on great day hikes with in 3 hours drive of Vegas. Heading out next weekend for a conference & have 2.5 days to go enjoy the rocks/desert/water of the area. Not enough time to get into the Grand Canyon, have done main hikes at Zion & would consider them again or?? Might have hiking poles with me, but no more gear than that. Looking for suggestions on day hikes maximum round trip 8 miles. Where have you been that I might enjoy. (Have gone about a half mile on the Subway…
I'm currently living in California and I'll go to the East Coast for 10 days in June.
I will spend 8 days in NY and then I will have 2 extra days to visit either Washington or Boston. I really can't decide between these two, so I need your help.

Which city do you think I…
Million thanks in advance. We're a couple on our thirties, traveling on 10.May to LA to do a 22 day roadtrip. We've booked most of our accommodation a bit "blindly", as this is our first time there, and as much as we try to calculate distances and highlights to see, we're not completely sure of our choices. I guess we won't be until we're there, but just in case someone can give us a bit of advice, it will be greatly appreciated.
When I see the huge map, I realize we might be ambitious, so…
I'm interested in visiting the Falling Water House by Frank Lloyd Wright in Mill Run Pennsylvania, is anyone else visiting this amazing site in July by any chance?
H guys, I am visiting the USA (Western states only) for 3-6 months. I would like to know which MVNO operating on the GSM network with a prepaid/pay as you go offer is the best according to the following criteria: I'm interested in sending/receiving a lot of SMS (to local mobiles only). For example, 100-300SMS/month. No roaming, no international, no data, no nothing, just the cheapest local SMS. I will make/receive the occasional voice call, for example, a few calls/week. I'm interested in a…
