Is there anything to do on Hatteras Island in March?

My wife and I are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in March, and we are thinking of going to Hatteras Island, North Carolina. We went there about 20 years ago, but I don’t think it was in March. Is there anything to do on Hatteras in March? Are things open? [more inside]

Vacation scope creep - embrace or avoid?

I am in the planning stages of a summer vacation, and am stressing about scope creep. We are flying from the east to the Big Island of Hawaii. Direct flights aren’t an option, and most flights have layovers, generally in California. It got me thinking…and then over thinking. Should we stop in ie. San Francisio on the way there for a couple of days, and maybe L.A. for a couple of ways on the way back? I have not been to either city. Or is that silly, and we should just extend our stay in Hawaii from a week to say 10-12 days ? [more inside]

Off-season honeymoon in Kennybunk, ME

I'm getting married in just a few weeks and we're going to Kennybunk, ME for our honeymoon. I'm not familiar with the area especially off-season, and was wondering if some locals would share secrets in the area, including Portland, ME. We'll be there for three days. Thanks in advance for your awesome and fun suggestions.

Angelenos, help me walk the walk

I'll keep this brief. I'm currently visiting Los Angeles and would like to participate in the Women's March here on Saturday. I'm a tourist staying in Venice Beach with a rental car and a bike. What would be the best way to get downtown and back for the march? I've asked around and heard horror stories from last year about the transit options: impossible parking and traffic, trains too crowded to board, overstressed Uber and Lyft systems. Are there shuttles I should know about? Better times for the trains? Any ideas would be welcome! Thanks!

DIY Tour Rail Park Philadelphia

Hello, how do I do a DIY tour of the Rail Park in Philadelphia? I've not been in town for the organized tours. Three miles of rough urban hiking and exploration is enticing. Where to start? What to see? Where to get a drink and lunch along the way?

Where should we go for a long weekend in March in the mid-Atlantic area?

Looking to meet up with some friends for a relaxing long weekend in mid March. Will be traveling with 6 adults and 2 children under 2, and looking for spots within an easy drive from both Philly and DC. Looking for a destination where we could rent a comfortable 4 bedroom house and have options for some shopping/restaurants/outdoor activities. Would consider a beach destination (NJ/DE/MD) if the town has stuff going on in the off-season. Also open to city destinations (we've considered Baltimore or Annapolis) or even a cabin in the Poconos. Any recommendations welcome!

My Brilliant Vacation

I would love personal recommendations about relatively inexpensive but not grungy places to stay (from towns to actual lodgings) in the Amalfi coast this summer. Travelers are a mother/daughter pair (middle aged/teen) who do not want to drive. [more inside]

What does getting an auto salvage title mean to me?

I recently made an appointment with GEICO to get repair on some hail damage (large cracks in windshield, many dings) on my seven-year old Hyundai Accent. After about an hour and a half of assessment, the agent proclaimed that the damage was greater than the value of the car. [more inside]

What's New in New Orleans?

I'm off to visit New Orleans for a while in the near future and I'd like an overview of what's new, what's changed, and what's not to miss. I've been a bunch of times but not recently and I'll be staying in the CBD- We like theater, eating, history, art, engineering projects, menswear (secondhand and thrift) and general homosexual bonhomie. Excellent tours ideal.
