Greyhound from Corvallis to Salem Oregon

I need to travel from Corvallis to Salem. I've found a route that fits my needs, but I can't be late (I need to be there for a wedding). I've never used Greyhound: is there any likelihood that I might be two hours late?

Travel options between Newark airport and Wall St?

I'm flying into Newark on Porter Airline, arriving around noon. Our hotel is on Wall St, close to the Wall street subway station. I'm seeing a lot of stories about terrible commuter delays, including on trains between Jersey and Manhattan. Should we spend the extra money for a van between the airport and hotel? [more inside]

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!

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.

Fix our last-minute Las Vegas-adjacent hiking plans

Two urban-dwelling Europeans are off to Las Vegas for work $reasons in early August. We're front-loading our trip with some R'n'R, by doing some nearby-ish hiking, travelling by car from the city. Help us not die in a canyon. What are your top recommendations for intermediate hikes a reasonable drive away from Las Vegas, and hotels/motels/whatever we should stay overnight? [more inside]

Campsites for the August eclipse in Oregon, or other options?

We're getting a late start on our planning for seeing the eclipse out of Portland (I know, I know). We have two young kids and would like to camp somewhere along the route, but we can't find anywhere within a 5-hour drive that has campsites that aren't in the hundreds of dollars, if there are any at all. What can we do? [more inside]
