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…

Hi all we are visiting for 3 weeks in late May 2017 and booking accommodation.
Is air BnB the go or are we better using expedia etc..Couple in 50s hoping to use public transport.
Hi Guys ,
we have 1 full Sunday in LA next May and I want to see a movie studio , I don't care about rides. What do you recommend.
We are planning to see in a day and a half, the Hollywood sign, the stars on the footpath and a studio. We plan to stay on Sunset Boulevard.
We won't be doing any high end shopping but we will go down Rodeo drive.Can this all be done by bus, tours or in a taxi? Should I take the plunge and drive, I don't want to unless absolutely necessary svn though I made it around…
I'm heading to Oahu and I'm looking for some surf spots that would be good for a lower intermediate surfer girl. All I can really find are either beginner spots or the big north shore advanced spots. I like pretty mellow breaks, long points etc & anything up to head high max (reg head high, not Hawaiian head high lol). I know there must be some spot out there that aren't maxing out in winter.
Any ideas? Thanks.
So me and 3 other friends wanted to do a road trip in the USA next summer but we need some advice about our budget, how realistic our plan is, cheapest ways to get accommodation, best modes of transport etc.
This was our first rough plan:
Start in San Diego- 5 days
Bus to Los Angeles, stay for 5 days
Bus to San Francisco, stay for 4 days
Travel to Yosemite, camp for a couple days
Travel to Vegas, stay for 7 days (during which we'll visit Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Zion National Park)
Fly to Seattle…
From Chico, CA, I'm heading west to the Humboldt Redwoods National Forest and then eventually back to Sacramento to fly back home. We really only have three days of exploring. I'm curious which Hwy is a better route to the west - 299 or 36? We'll save some time on 36, but are more concerned about a scenic route with interesting stops along the way.
Also curious about Mattole Road. Would it be worth detour or are we better off sticking to Hwy 101?
We are a group of friends spending Thanksgiving in Florida. One of the must - things we are most interested in doing is snorkeling with manatees. We have our accomodation in Miami for 6 nights, so we would like to go snorkel somewhere around Miami. Do you recommend any nearby? I´ve seen a couple near Tampa but not much around Miami. If not, where do you consider a good spot to snokel with manatees?
Thanks a lot. I appreciate it.
