    Heading to Peru in a week with my 9 year old son...any tips :)

    I was there last year and thought Peru is a great place to take kids! Lima was OK during the day (usual big city precautions apply) but do be sure at night to take taxis and to only take taxis that are licensed, perhaps best to ask the hotel or the restaurant you are leaving from to call one for you at night. Miraflores is a safe neighborhood to walk around it at night (at least I found it so as a single lone female traveler). If your 9 yr old is intrigued by surfing, Lima has good surfing schools on the beach below Miraflores. Plaza de Armas and main Cathedral are stunning, and a a day in Barranco is a must. Cuzco is a delight, but do take it easy due to altitude and possible altitude sickness. We took it slow and drank alot of water and coca tea. We felt safe walking everywhere in Cuzco. En route to Machu Picchu, try to overnight in Ollantaytambo and stay at the station albergue-one of the best places I ever stayed at-loads of charm and fab garden and restaurant. Good Inca ruins in town too. Puno was a so-so place for me-very touristy and overrun with touristy businesses, but the central market was great-only locals and lots of colour. The buses between cities are great-vary from two decker comfortable to rickety. Spend the extra to go on a comfortable one. I prefer to arive in a place during the day, so depending on the length of journey, be OK with overnight buses. Consider a trip to the Colca Canyon and stay at Cabanaconde-better than the mad dash day trips folks do from Arequipa to see the condors. We stayed in the village for three nights and could easily have stayed a week with all the hiking opportunities in the area. Here's a good assortment of articles on Peru safety: http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/country/168/Peru over 7 years ago

    We are going to Hawaii for 11 days is August. Should we stay in Maui the whole time or squeeze in another island?

    11 days is a long time for Maui if you plan on seeing things and maximizing your time in Hawaii. Lots to see and do in Maui, but you could easily bop over to another island for 3-4 days. I love Kauai- aside from uninteresting Poipu, you can get away from the resorts and crowds all over th island. Koke'e state Park, Waimea Canyon, and the Nualolo trail are fabulous. The North Shore and Napali coast are beautiful places with trails and kayaking. over 7 years ago

    must see places in Seattle and south to Frisco.

    Good Seattle picks, add Elliott Bay and Capitol Hill for great neighborhoods, shops and restaurants. I've also always loved Wallingford and university districts too. It's a great drive south to SF! Don't miss Portland- in summer there's the rose garden, great micro brewpubs, food and city rambling. You can take the coastal route down or inland highway- depends if you prefer rugged coast or mountains/volcanic landscape. Inland takes you past Crater Lake, Mt Shasta and Lassen volcanos with great hiking in all of them. Back up in Oregon, Ashland has a fab Shakespeare Festival. Gold country up in the Trinity Alps includes Weaverville-lovely small western Victorian town with great hiking and fishing a wee bit of interesting gold rush history. Stay at the Weaverville Inn-a gem. The giant redwoods are also along Highwy 101, so stop for a hike in one of the redwood parks. Ukiah, Humboldt and Arcata are long the coast- great for a glimpse of granola rugged lifestyle and organic farms, restaurants, and 'other' agriculture. Ferndale is a gorgeous Victorian town in that area. Lots of B&Bs. I'm a huge fan of the towns along 101 in the wine country such as Healdsburg, and Silverado Trail. Along the California coast on 1 are Jenner, Mendocino, pt Ryes Station ( must stop here if taking coastal route) great Bovine bakery and the local cheese Cowgirl Creamery get you sorted for packing a picnic and enjoying Pt Reyes Park trails and beaches. Oyster galore too at Marshall or Drakes Bay. over 7 years ago

    What's the best way to get around in Los Angeles?

    Sadly, a car, though there is subway that connects Hollywood with downtown, and it's safe and efficient. Avoid freeways. I've always taken Fountain to get from Hollywood to downtown, or Sunset Blvd to the coast or to Silver Lake area. over 7 years ago
