Adventure, but not too much adventure

I am planning on going to Turkey at the end of November for just shy of two weeks and am looking for a couple of pieces of advice: Is a side trip to Cairo alone for two days a terrible decision? And are there lodgings in Istanbul where it is easy to meet other travelers that don't involve giant dorms and drunken twenty somethings? [more inside]

Please help a family of four with an outdoorsy but non-camping trip to the Grand Tetons and Salt Lake City!

Our family of four (Mom, Dad, 2 boys ages 8 & 12) wants to enjoy Yellowstone Park, the Grand Tetons, and possibly shoot down to the Salt Lake City area for about a week in late July 2012. We love the outdoors, but can't bring camping gear. Will we be able to find spontaneous lodging in cheap hotels or cabins for under $100 per night - or do we need to book everything waaay in advance?

No cutsey Teddy Bears

Recommendations for a Paluxy river B & B in Glen Rose, Texas. I'm absconding with Mrs Pecantree for the weekend. Victorian lace and pillows do not make a B & B attractive. Rather, honest nature and beautiful scenery with good food. We plan lots of hikes during the day.

Best 1.5 (Cheap) Days in Olympic National Park?

Myself and two friends have decided to do our annual reunion in Olympic National park but since we’re all short on vacation, we only have Friday night through Sunday afternoon. Is there a way we could somehow combine a 4-10 mile day hike with a coastal experience in this amount of time? I've seen the wta.org and nps.gov sites but I'm sort of overwhelmed by choice and looking for recommendations. [more inside]

Lodging in and around Sequoia?

I'm planning to visit Sequoia National Park for a long romantic weekend with the girlfriend and was hoping someone here might be able to recommend a place or places to stay. Originally we wanted to stay at Wuksachi Sequoia Lodge but we couldn't get reservations for the particular weekend. A fireplace would be a big plus!

Nice but inexpensive/moderately priced lodging around Boston?

We're going to be visiting Boston for a few days, starting tomorrow (Sunday). We'd like to avoid traffic and parking issues by staying in the outskirts and taking mass-transit into downtown to see the sights. We're looking for a hotel or motel that is pleasant, clean and fairly inexpensive (less than $125/night IF possible). Any recommendations?

Help me cushion the leaving-home blow.

I'm moving from Boston to Cincinnati in a few weeks, and am doing the drive to OH on my own. I'd like to stop halfway through and stay the night - someplace not expensive, but hopefully someplace nice (to help cushion the blow of leaving 'home' for good). However, Travelocity et. al. are just giving me HoJos, Holiday Inns, etc, all for quite a bit of money per night and generally with questionable cleanliness. It seems logical to get off the highway to find a place that's not going to rip me off - but how do I find a nice, clean, mostly inexpensive place while knowing nothing about the area I'm hoping to stop (Rochester/Buffalo/Erie, PA)? Can you help? [more inside]

Traveling to Oaxaca with a friend for a 2-4 week Spanish immersion program this June/July. We are looking for some advice about Spanish language programs, homestays/lodging, and transportation.

Young people in love are very seldom hungry

My wife and I recently re-watched It Happened One Night, and I got to wondering about the auto-camps in that movie. They must have been prevalent in that time, but I'm wondering if any are left. I'd like to hunt a few down and work them into a road trip. Anyone out there in MeFi-land know of any in the USA?

Can anyone recommend some good stops on Highway I95 between NC and Florida?

Can anyone recommend some good stops on Highway I95 between NC and Florida? I'm driving to Florida after Christmas on Highway I95 and thought I'd consult the mefi hive for some suggestions on good stops for food or other things that are worth pulling off the road for periodically. I've driven the route before but I've always wished I knew of better places to eat than the usual chains/fastfood (ugh!) that have saturated the highway offramps. Roadside attractions are welcome, too (but not Pedro's tourist trap emporium at the NC/SC border).
