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…

My husband and I will be in New Orleans for 4-5 nights at the end of July. In early August, we are going from New Orleans to Miami. We can't decide whether to drive, or fly? Flying is obviously way faster and quite cheap. But just wondering if the drive is worth it at all? If we do drive, we would do it over 1-2 days, not longer.
Thanks in advance from a couple of Canadians!
My husband & I are staying in San Francisco for a week in October. Planning to spend about 4 days in SF itself & 3 days driving around the area.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated & help us make some decisions!

Question is, on the way back, should we take the route through central Oregon and Washington (Bend, Spokane, etc.) or through Nevada/Idaho/Montana. We will have about a week to get from Napa back to Calgary, and we are hoping to camp as often as possible. Mainly looking for camping/scenery, although cultural stops and wineries are always fun as…
I am trying to map out a road trip with 2 kids(aged 8.5 and 6) starting from SF and exploring the national parks and places of interest in Arizona and Utah.

Would love your feedback on the feasibility of this…
