Family anniversary "experience" in/near Pittsburgh?

Pittsburgh folks to the rescue! My parents are celebrating a milestone anniversary this year.

Can you suggest something special we can do together so our memory is of more than just a nice dinner? [more inside]

What neighborhoods should I visit in Providence?

I have the chance to visit Providence and would like to check out some neighborhoods as potential places to live. I like the East Side, though I'm interested in recommendations of areas where it's still possible to buy a single-family home for $250k or so. [more inside]

Help me plan my stay in NYC this summer with kids (Please)

What area of NYC should we stay in? What's the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? Is there anything I should consider about where to rent a car from? (That last one seems like an odd question but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Our plan is to get a car and leave the evening of the last day, drive south for 3 or so hours and get a hotel and then do the rest of the trip.) [more inside]

Cheap visit to California?

We would like to visit a family member who lives in L.A. We're flying from the U.K. but can only stay with the family member a couple of nights. After that we need something else to do but don't want to spend a lot. Any ideas? We'll be staying around a week in total and the budget is flexible but pretty low if possible. [more inside]

Were taking a cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage, stopping at Icy Straights, Skagway and Juneau. We're going to be fine for food on the boat, but can anyone suggest restaurant options that will have vegetarian/vegan menu options in any of those stops, so we can eat while exploring?

What small cities in the US should I visit?

My husband and I like taking road trips, and recently got back from a great trip to Oklahoma and Kansas. We especially, and unexpectedly, fell in love with Tulsa, which we never would have thought to visit if we weren't in the area. It made us realize there must be a ton of other small, interesting cities scattered around the US (or Canada??) that we should put on our list for future road trips. What are they? [more inside]
