Road Trip Tampa to NYC - 5 days in June (difficulty: no major cities)

Please give me your suggestions of places to stop and spend anywhere between 2-6 hours, places to spend the night. We're looking for awesome nature, hiking with a view, picturesque areas. Cute unique towns are good too. No beaches unless there's unique nature stuff to explore. Happy to venture away from I95 and explore more inland than along the coast even if the drive takes longer. So if you have favorite places anywhere along the way, please suggest them. [more inside]

Hotel for young family in Center City Philly

Visiting Philly in early April for 3 nights as a family of 4 (4 yo and 2yo). We know Philly well from an era before kids. Do you have recommendations for hotels in Center City that would work well for a family? I looked at Roost Midtown & Rittenhouse. Kitchen is not so important but we would be willing to pay for space and kid-friendly vibes. AirBnB suggestions welcome if you have a specific link. Thanks!

A few weeks back a car merged into me without warning, tearing up my back driver's side panel and door. Now they won't respond to their own insurance company's attempts to make contact and their insurance wants me to "prove" that it was their fault. The situation was a hit-and-run. What can I do? Pennsylvania. [more inside]

Triangulate our travel? (U.S. northeast/ Ohio/ mid-atlantic)

I want to meet up with far-flung friends in August since it’s been years and one of the friends is visiting from abroad.

Do you know a lot about destinations in PA, western NY, or northern OH? Please help us choose! [more inside]
