    Which is the most fun bar in Chicago?

    Maybe not "most fun" but very interesting one is the Violet Hour...a speakeasy. Next door (or close) is The Blue Line, which may hit higher on the fun index. over 8 years ago

    What to do in maui

    Rent a convertible, drive the full circle of the Road to Hana, be sure to stop for ice cream at Coconut Glen's, watch for the Rainbow Forest...incredible trees! Ride bicycles down from the top of the volcano, then stop at the bottom for an excellent wood fired pizza near the coast. Have a drink in the endless pool at Four Seasons Resort...read a book and relax! Enjoy! over 8 years ago

    Does anyone have any recommendations for things to do in gatlinburg?

    The best place to stay and/or have a nice meal in or near Gatlinburg is The Lodge at Buckberry Creek. I think it is on Campbell Lead Road. The rooms and suites are extremely nice, all with mountain views, and I am pretty sure all have fireplaces. The suites are incredible! We travel a lot, but this is where we go each year--a weekend or two--for a "stay-cation." While there, be sure to hike or get a ride down to the pavilion by the creek. If it is cold, they'll have a huge fire built for you. Every season is equally gorgeous at Buckberry. Dinner is prepared by an excellent chef and they will modify recipes if you have special food limitations. Every meal we have had there has been flawless. Quite honestly, when we go we do not leave the property of the Lodge, except maybe to hike Charlie's Bunion or to Abrahm's Falls. If you want to go in early summer, be sure to read about (and see) the synchronized fireflies at Elkmont. over 8 years ago

    Where are the best beaches near Pisa?

    We strongly preferred Lucca over Pisa, but they are not far apart by train. In Lucca, ride bikes around the rampart then pick a spot and wander until you reach the tower with the trees on top. No need for a map. Be sure to stop at some tiny wine, cheese, bread, and olive shops on your way through the town so when you get to the top of the tower, you have a picnic in your pack. Nice afternoon or even jaunt through a small town that feels like Venice but without all of the water (or the associated smells and throngs of people). over 8 years ago

    Cruising northern Europe. What is the best currency to use: US$ or Euros?

    Euros, only! But I'd you are using a U.S. debit or credit card, check with your bank before you go. Some banks charge a flat "per transaction" fee in addition to a percentage above the exchange rate if you use them internationally. If that is the case, and the merchant is able to charge your card in dollars, you have no hidden fees. Just keep in mind to get cash for the smaller stuff rather than risk lots of extra fees. over 8 years ago

    Recommended things to do during 2 weeks drive around Belgium?

    If you are driving, Dinant and Namur are worth a stop as well. Wander around the Citadel in Namur and ride up the incline to the fort/citadel above Dinant. over 8 years ago

    Recommended things to do during 2 weeks drive around Belgium?

    Take some time in Bruges, rent a bicycle (easy, flat riding), take an iPad and get a prepaid sim card from Base, then get lost (and never be lost at all due to the iPad's mapping). Wander through Bruges and find the middle of the 5 windmills. Across the street is a little cafe called (i think) Der Moller, have lunch, then ride along the canals to the tiny town of Damme for coffee. There is a nice working windmill at Damme which does not charge for a visit. Go past Damme on the bike trails toward Sluis, NL. Be sure to take time to wheel yourself across the canal on the free bike/pedestrian ferry (we went several times for no reason at all). We haven't found that one "knock out" restaurant in Bruges to go to dinner after a fun day (yet)...guess we'll go back for a third time to keep looking! over 8 years ago
