AAnchorage: First Time Vacation June 30 - July 10

So I thought I'd answer directly rather than as a comment on someone else's post. I flew into Anchorage​ and also spent two nights there. The Anchorage Museum​ was a memorable attraction and well worth the visit. From... See More

ASedona: Best vortices?

I lived 2 years in Sedona in the 80s and have made several trips back since then. I was into the New Age scene but never really embraced the whole vortex craze. I've been to many of them because I enjoy hiking and exploring the terrain, but can't attest to any supernatural... See More

ASan Antonio to Yellowstone National Park: Road trip

It's a minimum 23-hour drive from San Antonio to Yellowstone, possibly more depending on route and traffic. That's about 6 days in the car for 8 hours each out of your 10 or 12 day total. I'd recommend you either lengthen your trip or cut back the distance. There... See More

ANew York City to Yellowstone National Park: Driving from NY to Yellowstone

Hi Kenneth. I applaud your road trip ambitions, but just want to point out it will take you three days (driving over 10 hours each day) just to get to Yellowstone NP from New York – and of course, 3 days back. So even though 15 days sounds like a long time, your time... See More

AGrand Canyon National Park: What is the best way to spend two days?

I'm assuming you're heading to the South Rim… is that correct? Look for accommodations in Tusayan – less expensive and more availability than inside the park. Does "we are light hikers" mean you would like to hike but nothing too strenuous, or... See More

ALas Vegas to Phoenix: Road Trip from Vegas to the National parks in Arizona and Utah

Also, since you asked for suggestions for a better plan here's mine: Start your trip the night before you planned – drive the 3 hours to Zion and spend the night. Wake up early… like at or before sunrise… and do as much as you can in Zion for... See More

ALas Vegas to Phoenix: Road Trip from Vegas to the National parks in Arizona and Utah

If all you want is to snap a selfie for Instagram and to claim the bragging rights for having been there, then sure, it's doable. But it's hardly enough time to see much of anything or to appreciate where you've been. Leaving Vegas at 9 will get you to Zion around... See More

ASedona: What to do in Sedona

Restaurants: The Hudson​, Pump House Station Urban Eatery and Market​. Sadly it appears that Paleo Brio is closed – that was the best place I ate on my visit there last year. Art galleries and fine dining: Tlaquepaque... See More

AAtlanta to San Francisco: customized driving trip

Day 1: Atlanta – Birmingham – Memphis – Ft. Smith, AR. 9.5 hrs. Day 2: Ft. Smith, AR – OKC – Amarillo, Albuquerque. 10.5 hrs. Not much to see along the way, but you're going to have to traverse the plains one way or another. 9 hrs a day... See More

AYellowstone National Park: Walking with difficulty. What can I do while family hikes?

I traveled Yellowstone National Park​ with a good friend two summers ago. She also was not able to hike. We toured the whole ring road together, had lunch at the Lake Yellowstone Hotel, dinner at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge​.... See More
