    Going to Vegas in September. Where should we stay?

    Depends what you like to do. I've stayed at the Bellagio and the rooms were great and it's in a good spot on the Strip. Aria is the latest new place folks are buzzin about. Twice on a budget I stayed at the Motel 6 on Tropicana Ave across from the MGM and it was fine, not too far a walk from the Strip (2 large 'blocks') The Tropicana Hotel, on the Strip and at Tropicana Ave I've heard is good value, even if it's lost it's heyday luster. Believe it or not, I also heard from several people that Hooters rooms are great and well priced. One of my face stays however, was unintentional: I bid on Priceline for a 4-star hotel and landed the Trump Hotel. It's off the Strip but only a 5-minute walk to it, but there are no slot machines or gambling frenzy etc in the lobby as you'd get in the other Strip hotels, which was actually nice respite. It was a peaceful hotel, with a nice pool, poolside restaurant with healthy breakfasts and the rooms were fabulously comfortable and ample. about 8 years ago

    what if you don't have a return ticket

    Broad question. Do you mean domestically? Entering which country? Which country are you a citizen of? Etc. Entry requirements vary widely from country to country and can depend on several variables: how long you plan on staying in a place, your 'regular' profession, information on the landing card, proof that you can support yourself while in a country and handle the questions from an immigration officer. Most countries want to make sure that your not having a return ticket doesn't equate to your staying in the country to work, etc. In the past I carried a copy of a recent bank statement or proof of a hostel reservation in an ongoing country I'm visiting to show my intention that I am just traveling through. Best approach is to look at the State Department or equivalent website of the country(ies) you are planning to visit to see what they require for entry. about 8 years ago

    Know a good budget tour of the Western USA national parks?

    That is alot of ground to cover but not impossible. Agree you should look at doing it by car and exploring them with some possible National Parks pass that may be available from the National Parks website: http://usparks.about.com/od/usnationalparks/p/park_passes.htm I am not aware of a t that covers all of them and it's nicer to go at your own pace with a car rental. Besides, there's lots of other parks and things to see in between these three parks you listed. Check out nationalparksblog.com for the latest on what's going on with some parks, national and state ( some are closing because of budget cuts). And book what you can by way of lodgings or campsites in or near the parks. They do get crowded in the summer, and with the long recession, many Americans more than ever are staying domestic for holidays and going the budget route, both which further point to more crowds in many parks across the country. Enjoy! Yellowstone and Redwoods are on my top list. about 8 years ago

    Staying in Boulder, Colorado.. What to do!!

    The area around Evergreen is also nice. Western outpost towns like Evergreen, Morrison etc that go along the canyon road and hug Red Rocks Amphitheatre are a nice day or weekend trip. Try to see a concert there if you can and stay overnight at a B&B in Morrison. Cafe Prague is a nice restaurant, and the Morrison Tavern is a real locals place with an outdoor patio and live music. Golden is a cool little town too with a small but impressive geology museum associated with the university department there. Excellent rocks, and amazing minerals from the area. Some river guide operators offer river trips that end up in Golden, perfect to end the day sampling at the Coors brewery! about 8 years ago
