Where should I go on vacation with my Mom?

My Mom (a lady in her 50s) and I (a lady in her 30s) have a week to travel together in April. It needs to be warm, relaxing, and accessible from the U.S. east coast (MA for her, NC for me). In the past we've done Big Deal trips (India, France) but we don't have enough time for that kind of thing. We mostly want to relax, walk around and eat good food, but both like outdoorsey stuff and cultural stuff. We don't like big crowds or resorts. Where should we go?! [more inside]

What are some cool things to do in Baltimore for a day?

I've got maybe a day to kill with my wife and kid in Baltimore... never really been there before, so what are some must-see things in the area? I've vaguely heard something about cherry blossoms... when do those bloom or where is the best place to view them? I'll be going in mid-April, so I've got some time to plan. TIA!

Day Trips in and Around Frankfurt

My brother (18) and I (23) are in the Frankfurt area visiting relatives. We're looking for interesting and fun day trips in and around Frankfurt (let's say anywhere within about a 2 hour train ride) for this weekend and next week: museums, festivals, interesting places to grab a drink, cool shops or places/neighborhoods we should just plain walk around and see. We don't have a car so everything needs to be accessible by public transport. Thanks!

Suggestions for cottages/cabins in Harbor County, Michigan for a weekend stay?

It'll be four of us (two couples) and we're planning to stay somewhere in Harbor County for a couple of nights before heading to another part of Michigan for a wedding. We plan to hit the wineries and do some general poking around and relaxation. Anyone had good experience with cottages/companies in that area? I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of the offerings online, so would appreciate direction! Thank you!

LSD trip simulation videos?

I'm working on a project for my health class that requires us to explain the effects of certain types of drugs, and my topic is hallucinogenic substances. I'm looking for some kind of video that can demonstrate the images/patterns/sounds that can be common for someone to see during an LSD trip. Does anyone either have a video in mind, or a place where I might be able to find a video that's similar to what I'm describing?

Can you recommend interesting/quirky/entertaining daytrips or guided tours?

I went on a really good "alternative" day trip to the Scottish Highlands with this company when I was in Edinburgh last week, and am now looking for recommendations for entertaining and offbeat guided tours and daytrips in other places. There are some good suggestions here for walking tours but I'm also interested in bus/coach/cycling etc.

How to get from Toronto to Brussels (and what to do with a 4-year-old once there)?

Hi. Two questions related to an upcoming family trip - from Toronto to Brussels: - cost-effective (but not too tiring) ways to get from Toronto to Brussels? Non-stop flight?

Around the world but still stay in one spot?

If the right helicopter were to exist, could I rise X number of feet (not to far mind you) above the earth point myself in the right direction hover there and then watch the world go by underneath me? How fast would I have to go and should I bring a change of clothes?

Spring Break Advice?

Spring Break just started for my girlfriend and I, and we're having trouble coming up with things to do. I live in Pittsburgh, and we've thought about checking out the city, but I'm not sure where to go (Other than the Waterfront or Squirrel Hill, which aren't that exciting). We'd also like to visit someplace nice in Pennsylvania or Ohio for a few days, but having not lived here for long I'm not quite sure where to go. We're looking to spend no more than a couple hundred dollars. Any ideas?

All Around the World

Any of you guys have experience with RTW (round the world) air travel tickets? Any particular ones to recommend? I have been looking into STA off and on, and several other options have been uncovered. But it seems all the data I can find is depressingly out of date. I tried futzing around on this webboard, but, not knowing much at all about airports, pro-level flying, and the like, I was incredibly intimidated to the point of "not knowing where to start."

Time Share Scams

We went to a home show recently, and while there my sweetheart apparently filled out some sweepstakes form. As a result, we got a call today from a nearby resort offering us several apparently-nice 'free gifts' in exchange for visiting their timeshare-resort and "learning more about their property" .... my question is: I assume this is a scam of some kind, but what kind of scam is it?
