San Diego in one day-o

One day in San Diego: what should we do? Asking for a co-worker (and also for me, sort of; see post-script): My wife and I have one day in San Diego coming up in early August. It's a weekday, the length is not negotiable, but assume it's a full day. Is there something in San Diego we absolutely should not miss (except the zoo, unfortunately)? Where should we eat (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)? [more inside]

Private places in NYC and surrounding areas for couples

Hi all, I'm looking for a place in NYC or the outer boroughs that me and my sweetheart can go makeout. Neither of us have cars, don't want to go to a hotel and don't want to do it in a place where lots of people can watch us. Can you find us a place? Think secluded areas where foot traffic is very light. Open to bars, cafes, parks (we found a place in central park but it's too buggy now) and any other places.

Things to do in Asheville, NC with a dog?

This weekend, my wife and I will be taking our trusty hound, Rosie to Asheville, NC. We're looking for outdoorsy things to do or places to go that we could enjoy together (as well as human only places, though many people have that question before). Suggestions for hikes, activities, restaurants, shops, etc. are welcome!

Is there a governing body over airline contracts for small US airports?

The closest airport to Hubby's Parents' Small Town used to be served by CompetentAirline, but is now served exclusively by AssholeAirline (rhymes with Poo-nited). Is there a federal body overseeing small airports, or some sort of website that tracks when contracts are renewed, so I could submit a public comment documenting the decline in travel quality that has happened since AssholeAirline took over?

What's the weirdest stuff that Europe has to offer?

We want to take a trip overseas, but are having trouble narrowing down our options. The things that usually inspire me to travel are weird: installation art, immersive theater, quixotic architecture. Please help me choose the most peculiar of Europe's many marvels! [more inside]

The Streets of Philadelphia

Travelling to Philly for two days late July for college tours for my girlfriend's son. Staying two blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
  • What else do you recommend we see?
  • Where should we get cheesesteaks from?
Bonus points for tips about visiting Hershey Park (we're visiting for one day) and what is best to do there. Saw older posts, but most are 7+ years old. Thanks in advance for your tips/help!

Driving from DC area to Outer Banks

I'm in Alexandria Va., and will be going down to the Outer Banks in NC (Corolla/Duck) again soon. I've pretty much always gone straight down I-95, but is there a better route? As anyone who has driven it knows, I-95 on summer weekends.... well, let's just say it's a foretaste of hell, and maybe there's a better plan.

My wife and I will be in LA for Sunday 10th September. Neither of us have been before or are likely to be there again in the near future.

Fix our last-minute Las Vegas-adjacent hiking plans

Keep me connected in Canada!

So, I'm going to Canada. I'd like to have my own internet access in Canada rather than relying on finding WiFi, free or otherwise. Making phone calls and texts would be nice, but I can probably get away with just data. My phone plan doesn't have roaming, and if it did, it would be ridiculously expensive. What are my options?

Just exactly how dangerous is Malmö?

I'm planning on visiting Malmö, Sweden for a few days in August. I've already booked my accommodations (just outside of the city centre). I've come across so many articles out there about how violent and all the gangs in the city. Is it actually as dangerous as it sounds? Am I buying into the fake news type, what's the deal with Malmö?
