This summer we are looking to do a 4-5 day trip (a little flexibility on length) with my 4-year old, 7 year-old (boys), and my husband and I. We live in a big city so are comfortable getting around. We are planning on a Detroit Tigers baseball game as that's on my husband's list. I suggested either also hitting Toronto or Niagara Falls in the second half - possibly taking the train from Windsor or driving from Detroit (we'd have a car there for sure). Has anyone done either or both of these with young (but not tiny) children? Is there one you'd recommend? We like nature, cities, museums in about equal quantity.
My best friend turns 50 this summer (how can this be-we were both 19 ten or fifteen minutes ago?!?!). She’d love to have us all meet at a lake house for a week-and chill. She’s in Phoenix, the rest of us are in Oregon. Criteria-8-10 people. Ideally dogs OK. Driving distance from Western Oregon would be great (cheaper for her to fly than for all of us) but flexible on that. [more inside]
I have had some intense shit go down in the past month and I would like to take a life affirming trip and am looking for travel suggestions. [more inside]
My Dad and I are considering a week in Singapore. He is mid 60s, I am mid 30s and female. Between us we like: museums, history, scenery, ballet, art, shopping, science and of course good food. We are middle class so don’t have endless funds but can afford a splurge now and then. What are some fun things to do? Also is there anywhere in Singapore a white female should not go by herself?
I have been thinking about doing a trip that includes several days of safari in Tanzania followed by a few days of beach relaxation in Zanzibar in the late summer (this summer if possible, otherwise next year). Please tell me the best type of itinerary for this type of trip plus any recommendations for packages! More inside. [more inside]
My kid is outgrowing the bike trailer, both in size and in disposition, and I'm having trouble figuring out where we go from here. I bike her to school a few days a week, and we need a new solution. Ideally it will allow me to bring her bike along too, and not cost as much as a used car. It seems like we are looking at some kind of cargo bike situation. What family biking setups have worked best for your family? [more inside]
I’ll have one full day in San Francisco next month. Normally I’d explore on foot, but I’ll be on crutches, and, well, hills. So what’s one place I could easily visit that would be accessible and memorable? [more inside]
I've been looking for the perfect place to go on our "babymoon"- and have almost found it. Little St. Simon's Island is to die for: www.littlestsimonsisland.com A combination of it being far away and expensive make it a bit less than reasonable for us. Do you know of good alternatives?

So we landed in NY City yesterday with a ten year old girl whose interests start with Harry Potter (and sometimes seemingly end there as well). Looking for things to cater to her curiosity. More details inside. [more inside]
We're looking for a vacation rental on Islay some time later in the summer - what's the best way to find one? [more inside]
Driving! I very much disliked it. It made me sweat through all my clothes. I avoided it a lot. Haven’t done it in 9 years because no license in this country. But I’m finally getting back in the saddle. Coping tips? [more inside]
I'd like to bicycle the Greenbrier River Trail, a state park in West Virginia, and most of the information I can find about it is sparse, outdated, or covers only small sections of the 77-mile trail. I'm looking for advice from people who have done the whole trail recently. [more inside]
My lease is almost up, and I need to buy a car. Aside from the lease, every previous car I've owned has been purchased or inherited from someone I knew. I know people negotiate at dealers, but I don't understand how it works. At all. And I'm not finding that in previous questions. [more inside]
I'm trying to track down the source of a quote I heard once about packing light for travel, something along the lines of "Never bring more than you can carry at a flat-out run for a quarter mile." I thought it was from Mark Twain (of course), but I'm having trouble verifying that--or any source.
I have the opportunity to work remotely from South America. I'm afraid that I'll try the digital nomad life and end up just spending all of my time alone in a hotel room. How can I plan ahead to find community in a foreign place? [more inside]
Hi Folks, My family is headed to Greece in early May. We are arriving in Athens around 1p local and need to get to Delphi that night. Is there a bus from the airport? I'm having a tough time finding good info on the web.
I will be attending Friday's CHVRCHES show at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley (YAY) and have questions about parking and dinner/drinks. [more inside]
Next weekend, I need to get from LAX to a private residence in Canoga Park, and later for my return to LAX I'll be coming from a hotel in Thousand Oaks. What's the best ratio of low price + low hassle to do this? Can anyone recommend a particular shuttle? Rideshare? Etc. [more inside]
I found a cheap fare to Rome at Easter and booked an overlong 13 day trip. Even cheap AirBnbs add up (yikes)...and I'm too fussy for bunk beds in youth hostels. I'll mostly be in Rome/Naples. Where can I go via train for 4 days to save a few bucks where lodgings/eats are less expensive? Just want to chill and blend in (i.e. more digital nomadism than tourism). [more inside]
Hope me find a weekend trip somewhere warm from NYC by plane! [more inside]
