Can I rent a car at SFO and return in the city the next day after 6 PM?

I am traveling to SF in a few weeks, arriving mid-afternoon on Thursday at SFO. I am planning to drive to Davis the same day, spending the Friday at UCD, and drive back to SF around 6 PM, where I'll stay. Ideally, I would not have to drive to SFO and shlep back to downtown, but return the car in the city that same Friday evening, or first take a cab downtown upon arrival to a local rental company that does offer (somewhat) later returns. To my surprise, it appears to be impossible to return a rental car in SF after 6 PM to a company that offers pickup at SFO. What am I missing? [more inside]

New York: air bnb vs cheap hotel?

I and my partner will be in NYC for about a week in a couple of months, and we're looking at our accommodation options now. We're leaning towards finding a place through air bnb because they look really nice and we've heard good things through friends, but we've also found some hotels in Manhattan that are a cheaper option, and we're not sure which way to go.

Visit Fallingwater before or after building a Lego model of it?

We're taking our 8 & 12 year old kids to Fallingwater this spring. We're also planning to build the Lego Architecture model of it. Looking for opinions on whether it is better to build beforehand or after we return. Kids are already gung ho for both Lego and architecture, so this isn't really a question about which one will spark interest for the other -- I'm looking for insight into which order will help them understand the building best.

Want to camp in Bryce/Zion area this summer. Need logistical help??

We (me, mrs. sexy, three kids ages 15, 19, 22) are flying into Vegas this July and want to explore nature to the east of there -- Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion as we've heard those places are amazing. We would like to camp there for a couple of nights, and we've done the car camping thing a lot as a family, but how do you do that when you've flown in and all you have are suitcases of clothes?

Buddy trip things to do - Georgia/Alabama/Tennessee

I am meeting up for a weekend with some guys from college (all in our 30s) and looking for a good spot to meet up/things to do. We all live in the southeast and it would be good to find something in between Atlanta, Birmingham and Chattanooga. Obviously we could stay in the one of those cities and there would be a lot to do, but I am curious if there are some hidden gems or fun places outside of the cities. Thanks in advance!
