Do any of you have any suggestions as to what can be done?

Storing Bags Overnight?  (3 Answers)

I book a flight from Atlanta to Rome when I was living in the Atlanta area. I've moved, so I've now had to book a flight from my new home to Atlanta. I tried changing the original ticket; it would cost me $600. I'm flying to Atlanta the day before, to err on the side of caution -- as I cannot miss the flight to Rome. I will have 3 bags; what in the heck can I do with those bags so that I'm not carrying them to the hotel for one night then back to the Atlanta Airport the next day? Help! :)

How do I get from NY to NJ?  (8 Answers)

I will be visiting NY next April (from Argentina) and I would like to go see some places in NJ.
The plan is Red Bank (just to visit JBJ's Soul Kitchen...unless you got some other place to recommend?) Asbury Park (I'm wondering if it's "visitable" right now? How is the restoration work going? Is there anything left to see?) and Atlantic City (Same as AP...I don't really know how damaged this area it worth visiting?)
Also, could anyone tell me how to get to this places (no car) from NY? Is there a train? A bus? I've hear the railroads have suffered severe damage... A friend was there 2 months ago and told me the train from NY took 1 hour and 30 minutes to get to Red Bank. Is it working now? Normally?
Finally, in what order should I visit this cities? I suppose NY-RB-AP-AC-NY?? If I leave NY early in the morning, would the day be enough to visit all those places?

Thanks in advance for your help and I'm sorry my english isn't that good.

Regards, Betiana

Need Help planning our vacation  (4 Answers)

Returning from York, PA to Maine in September, we were hoping to stop in NJ to visit Carlo's Bakery because my girls LOVE watching his show. While in Hoboken, I was thinking that maybe we could take a ferry over to NYC so they could get a glimpse of the city. This would end up being an all day affair so we would need to spend the night somewhere, preferably outside of Hoboken so it wouldn't be so expensive. Any recommendations of where we could stay? It would be me, my husband and 4 kids 11-16 in age. Oh, and my husband won't stay in a "dive". :)

Where to stay  (4 Answers)

Arriving at Newark airport and renting a car for a week of sightseeing and returning via Newark. Looking for a relatively safe place to stay the first couple of nights that is some distance from the airport in order to save about half of the car rental cost.
Sorry but us westcoasters attain all of our knowledge about NJ from the Sopranos and Jersey Shore which unfortunately makes me nervous about where to stay.
Thanks for your patience.

East Hanover  (7 Answers)

Hello, I'm going on a business trip to East Hanover. Doesn't sound too exciting but I will have a couple of extra days to spend. I know that NYC isn't too far but what else is there that would be a "must do"? I do love to shop which is definitely one of the things I want to do but would also like to sight see a bit. Might rent a car, thinking I'll have a couple of days, maybe 3. I heard there is a great shopping mall somewhere out of NYC but can't remember the name of it, thinking it would be convenient to go from East Hanover. Other shopping possibilities that could be combined with sight seeing? Thanks much for your feedback. I love this forum, people are great here and always so helpful. Tira

Oceanfront with ocean view NJ beach? Please help!  (3 Answers)

I grew up in Monmouth County, NJ and always did daytrips to the shore. I am planning a week at the beach w/my family and am looking for a beach where we can rent direct oceanfront home/condo. My parents visited LBI last week and loved it but..."oceanfront" is not ocean view. The dunes obscure the ocean, and we love to wake up in the morning and see the water.

My parents are visiting Ocean City this week, but I'm leary of the dry town status. Not that we drink a lot out on the town, but I'd like to have a drink when we go out to dinner, etc.

Any suggestions for nice beaches that rent oceanfront homes/condos with a view? Thanks in advance for any replies!

How to get from Newark Airport to Philadelphia?  (4 Answers)

hey guys,
Taking the red eye from LAX to Newark on Friday night, arriving early Saturday morning. The Amtrak would cost 69 bux a person for an hour and 4 minutes of train travel! That is more expensive than even the German ICE trains! Needless to say, that is prohibitively expensive and we need to find another way. Hell, for an hour's drive we could probably take a taxi for 100 bucks. I checked on greyhound but couldn't find anything from the airport. Can you guys help please?

New Jersey Beaches  (4 Answers)

Hi again from N.Ireland,
Thanks everyone for your previous tips. We plan to stay in a beach resort above Atlantic City. There are so many websites my head is spinning. We would like to stay somewhere which would suit the kids 11 and 15 for a few days to recharge the batteries after DC.
If there was a particular Hotel/Motel/Resort that could be recommended, that would be great. They love an outdoor pool.

Getting about Newark Airport  (3 Answers)

I'm looking at flying from Toronto into Newark, and then taking the train to Philadelphia. I'll have done US customs at the Toronto airport, so will just have to pick up a suitcase (its just a small DH-8 plane). If my flight gets in at 3:15pm will I have time to catch the 4:30pm train from the EWR train station?
Price wise with flight & train it is about the same or less to fly to Newark then to fly directly to Philadelphia, and flying out of Toronto Island airport, my costs are even less than Toronto Pearson airport - and the time isn't much different, if you're wondering why I'm looking at this journey - besides, it allows me to see a bit of from the train.

Where to stop over night on way from Newark airport  (3 Answers)


We are arriving at Newark in the afternoon on 18 June (from UK), picking up a hire car and heading up to New England for a couple of weeks. We're landing about 15.00 and I guess it will be at least 16.00 - 16.30 time we leave the airport. I am unsure how busy the roads are going to be and how far to try to get on the first day (I think we going to be tired). Can anyone recommend anywhere (motel) decent to stay on the first night a little away from Newark and heading in the right direction or any advice at all on the journey to New England (we'll probably head for Mystic/Newport, CT area first).

Many thanks
