Kauai- how much should I trust the weather forecast?

Hi there,

I'm traveling to Kauai with my boyfriend, my sister and my brother in law next week (1/1-1/7). We have a Wings Over Kauai flight booked for 4PM on the 2nd of January, currently the weather forecast isn't great for that day (cloudy with some showers, we'd rather not see only clouds from the plane). The company is booked up for the rest of our dates except for the 4th of January. The 4th currently has an excellent forecast, but that's 1 week from today- not sure how reliable the…

Early arrival at Detroit Amtrak Station

Hello All,

I am considering booking an Amtrak ticket for a friend who has been staying with us in DC, to arrive in Detroit later this week. The only problem is that the train arrives at 5:08 AM and according to Amtrak's website, the station opens at 5:30 AM. She will have to likely wait 2 hours or so before another friend can pick her up - will there be a place for her to wait inside, safely until the station opens up? She will have several bags with her and it will be her first time in Detroit…

Using discount coupon in Las Vegas

Hi,

I'm going to book accommodation in Las Vegas and have searched both Caeser's Palace and the Bellagio from 28th Feb and checking out on the 3rd March.

I found the following website - http://www.vegasunzipped.com/travel-deals/ and found a package deal for Caeser's Palace with the code ICIRE that reduces the price by $200. Anyone used the discount codes? Any advice? I don't want to book it and find myself red faced because I booked under a pensions discount or a national service discount..

New Orleans with children

we're planning a spring break trip to New Orleans with our 6&3yr olds (March 28th-April 5th 2015), we want to see a fair bit of the city but also do some plantation and swamp tours, get them on a riverboat if possible. We were thinking of doing our usual AirBnB, as we find it often easier with the kids in tow.

Any recommendations on places/areas to stay? Would you base in New Orleans the whole time and take day trips out or do you have recommendations for getting out of the city to explore…
