Ultimate planning calendar

Is there some sort of online calendar that can help me pick out weekends when people are most willing and able to attend an event? Obviously it's easy for me to look up Thanksgiving but more difficult for me to figure out things like NBA playoffs, school semesters starting, conflicts with popular wedding dates, airfare peaks, etc.

Toronto in December

I have the opportunity to visit Toronto from December 25 - December 29 and I have a few questions: 1) Will things (restaurants, shops, museums) be open on Christmas Day and Boxing Day? 2) Is it foolish to visit in December (weather? crowds?)? 3) What are the must-see, must-do things in Toronto? 4) What are the best restaurants in Toronto? (I'm looking for fine dining as well as local fare.) Thanks!

Looking to rent a cottage near Acadia National Park for Thanksgiving, but drawing a blank. Please help.

I am planning to make a trip with my family to Acadia national park during the Thanksgiving weekend in November. It will be a surprise gift for my family and having just graduated, my budget isn't too high, but I want to do the best I can for them. I am guessing that many of you have been to Acadia and could share some of your experience. We will be 3 adult couples (me/wife, my parents and my brother/wife) and are therefore looking for at least a 3-bedroom cottage. Since it is off-season there due to the winter, I had budgeted $500 for renting the cottage for 3 nights in Bar Harbor or surrounding areas. However, most cottages on homeaway, vrbo etc are at least $1000 for the week and most don't rent for less than a week - many don't rent at all after October. [more inside]

How can we plan this beach getaway vacation without going too far from NYC?

My friends and I live in NYC. We want to spend a night at a local beach (Far Rockaway, Sandy Hook, Fire Island, whatever). Ideally, this would consist of a trip via public transit to a beach, and then staying at a reasonably priced hotel close to said beach. If possible, we'd like to avoid renting a car or splurging on a vacation rental. [more inside]
