(NYC-Filter) Airport Parking at JFK

I need to park at or around JFK for about 2 and a half weeks this summer. Previously we've parked at the JFK long term lot, but this year they're quoting me over $600, yikes. But many of the offsite long term parking lots look kinda sketchy. Is there an offsite lot that you can recommend, which is minimally sketchy, has a convenient shuttle, and won't be too exhausting to get to with 2 kids and luggage? The last time this was asked was in 2010, and the top answer doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Day passes for indoor pools in Philadelphia

I'm handy with a search engine, so I'm not looking for recommendations on search hits, but if you have been to an indoor pool in Philadelphia where there is day-pass access, is there one you would recommend?

How Safe is Baltimore these days?

I'm planning to visit Baltimore in August...maybe. How safe is the area around the Art Gallery, the American Visionary Art Museum, the George Peabody Library? Also planning to visit the Baltimore improv theatre. And while talking about it, what are the cool sights in the city?

Road Trip break

I have to drive from Boston to Port Jervis, PA on a Tuesday. I'd like to break up the trip with something fun--a museum? A cute town? anything? My research is showing that nothing interesting is open on Tuesdays. This thing is ideally not TOO far from 84. Help?

Things to do in Portland, Maine

A friend and I are flying to Portland, Maine, for a few days in August. Tickets are cheap and this is just a chance to get out of town in August. What are some things we might do? I like the ocean but am not a beach bather. Happy to hear about your favorite things to see and do in Portland or nearby.

TravelFilter: Drive from Zion, UT, to San Luis Obispo, CA.

This leg is part of our summer adventure and I'm looking for info/recommendations. We don't want to meander too much, and Google Maps routes us through Las Vegas, the Mojave Desert, and Bakersfield, Routes 1I5-58-I5. Anything special worth stopping for? General advice? Alternate routes to suggest that don't lose several hours?

Mother-Daughter Getaways Near Baltimore?

My five-year-old daughter and I have ten weeks of summer break stretching out ahead of us. I stay home with her, and much of the break will be spent at swim lessons or running in sprinklers while eating popsicles. However, I'd like to organize a couple of Mother-Daughter overnight trips to break up the routine. Berkeley Springs was a big hit when we went before. We like outdoorsy, but not super challenging, waffles, donuts, lots of downtime, and cool playgrounds. Museums and cultural type destinations would be too much stress - my kid wants to touch EVERYTHING. Any suggestions?

Kennedy Space Center Launch Tips!

We will be in FL within driving distance the day of the next scheduled launch. We will go to Kennedy Space Center for the day. Their hours are 9-5. The launch is at 5:16pm. We do not want to pay $250 per person for launch tickets. What are our best options for seeing as much of the launch as we can? Will we see it from the parking lot? A nearby beach? Which one?

how do I charge my rental EV

I've got a rental EV - a Hyunai. I've never used an EV before. I need to return it tomorrow morning, and need to find a place to charge it quickly I think. (I could charge it overnight at my hotel, but the charger here is broken). How do I find a place to charge it? I'm in Healdsburg, CA, and driving down to San Francisco tomorrow...

Pet transportation options

There's a cat that I would really like to adopt, but unfortunately she's been relocated from a shelter in NYC (where I am) to a shelter in Kingston, New York (90 miles north). Are there options to transport her back home that I may be missing? [more inside]

Oregon/Northern CA roadtrip recommendations?

I've never been to Oregon and will be taking a little road trip starting in Portland this August. I'm trying to figure out if we want to fly in/out of Portland or fly into Portland and out of San Francisco. I'm tempted to keep it simple and loop back to Portland. [more inside]

Don't miss stops on the way driving from San Diego to Los Angeles?

I will be driving from San Diego to Los Angeles in mid-August and am wondering where I should stop along the way? Sites not to miss? Leaving San Diego at 8am and arriving Los Angeles maybe around 6 - so I have time (figure that gives me about 5 hours of 'stops'). Have never spent any time in the space North of San Diego and South of Laguna, so mostly interested in that area.

What's it like living in Pennsylvania?

A company I would very much like to work for some day has its headquarters in Pittsburg... and a firm onsite/hybrid attendance policy. I'm curious about what it would be like for me, a lifelong SoCal girl, to move to Pittsburg. Hopefully I'd be working with a yearly income of about $180-200k. What culture shock might await me?
