Have dog, boat, kid, and sometimes car, will travel

I live in Brooklyn and I'm looking for places within, say, a two hour drive that I can go with two adults, a three year old kid, and a 25 pound puppy to ideally hike, swim (or at least splash in some water) and paddle around a little in our inflatable kayak. It's surprisingly hard to find places around the city that allow all three of those things -- swimming, dogs, and kayaks! [more inside]

Yellowstone Summer 2021

Spouse and I are headed out to the American West for a wedding soon (early Sept 2021) and planned to sneak a brief day trip into Yellowstone while we were out there. I'm mostly interested in advice from anyone who has been there this summer regarding how disorganized or busy it is; the Yellowstone website says there's no entry reservations going on. [more inside]

Frequent Tallahassee Tourist recs

It looks like I will soon be visiting the Tallahassee area about once per month for work.

I am hoping for some more recent recommendations of places to visit. [more inside]

Is this vacation possible in Hawaii?

My spouse and I are interested in visiting Hawaii since we live on the West Coast, but I would be the organizer and I'm getting overwhelmed by all of the different aspects to plan.

How to find a good EV or hybrid deal?

I'm trying to navigate the world of EVs and plug in hybrids. It's been hard to compare apples to apples. Attempts to find deals turn up false leads, but also, it seems like the dealer sites include high prices followed by $13k of discounts. And inventory seems maybe super low? What websites and approaches did you use to compare real prices? Where do you think the sweet spot of value is? [more inside]

Lodging suggestions for a solitary west coast vacation

I need to go somewhere comfortable and chill the hell out for a few days. My wish list:
  • Within ~a day's travel from Oakland CA or Portland OR
  • Close proximity to nature
  • Comfortable areas to sit and read/write/think
  • Has character; not a generic luxury hotel
  • Not currently experiencing 100° weather or wildfire smoke
  • Limited internet connectivity is a bonus
  • Not booked solid for months and months is a bonus
