    What are some great, but not difficult, trails in Bryce Canyon, Capital Reef and Escalante Utah?

    I think Queen’s Garden at Sunrise Point, Navajo Loop at Sunset, and Bristlecone Loop at Rainbow Point are relatively easy and will bring you to intricate rock formations and awesome plant life. Here are some recommendations for sunset and sunrise locations and other highlights at Bryce Canyon: http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/11/25/sunset-and-sunrise-in-bryce-canyon-of-fairy-cities-in-painted-stone/ about 7 years ago

    What are recommended day trips from Orlando FL (no kids)?

    Also, you could spend the morning kayaking at the Little Big Econ State Forest (https://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/kayaking-in-the-little-big-econ-state-forest/) and then go to the Orlando Museum of Art (http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/08/07/orlando-museum-of-art/) and/or the Morse Museum, "the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany" (http://www.morsemuseum.org/) about 7 years ago

    What are recommended day trips from Orlando FL (no kids)?

    I really enjoyed Bok Gardens, about an hour away from Orlando--beautiful gardens, a singing tower, lovely birds, and Florida's highest point (http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/unexpected-orlando-bok-gardens/) about 7 years ago

    What is some cheap activities for the entire family to do while in Orlando?

    I really enjoyed Gatorland. They have several shows during the day. We also took a night walk, which will be really fun for kids--you get to hold a baby alligator and then see the entire park in the evening, when everyone is gone, and eyes of alligators begin to shine. Birds at that park are breathtaking (http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/09/28/gatorland-in-the-realm-of-birds-and-crocodilians/). I think Sea World is also a fun, less expensive place. And I'd do the Kennedy Space Center (http://www.kennedyspacecenter.com/)--both fun and inspiring for kids and adults. about 7 years ago

    What's the best part of Antelope Canyon to visit? Best tour company?

    I researched this for our recent vacation and finally chose Carol Bigthumb's Adventurous Antelope Canyon Photo Tours, mostly because they have exclusive access to three other slot canyons in the area and seem to have priority over other tours at Antelope Canyon. We were VERY pleased--especially the photographer in the group. Here are the highlights of that breathtaking morning: http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/11/05/owl-rattlesnake-and-antelope-canyons-where-the-wind-lives/ We ended up going to the Upper Antelope Canyon, Owl Canyon (where two great horned owls live), and Rattlesnake Canyon (my favorite--very narrow and stunning in absolute solitude). about 7 years ago

    Where is best place to eat in Las Vegas?

    What do you like? I always enjoy Julian Serrano's Picasso (http://www.bellagio.com/restaurants/picasso.aspx; there is a vegetarian menu--not that easy to find in Las Vegas)--views of Bellagio's singing fountains are a plus. For a relaxing lunch or dinner, Mon Ami Gabi at Paris became my favorite: http://www.parislasvegas.com/casinos/paris-las-vegas/restaurants-dining/mon-ami-gabi-detail.html (if you sit outside, you'll see the Bellagio fountains). My favorite Asian restaurant is Sensi at Bellagio (http://www.bellagio.com/restaurants/sensi.aspx) about 7 years ago

    What should be on my "must see/must do" list for 1 week in Flagstaff, AZ?

    Definitely, visit the Great Canyon is the biggest close-by attraction (North Rim is less crowded than South Rim if you go May to September). Stay at the historic Weatherford Hotel. Visit the surreal Sunset Crater Volcano park and the nearby American Indian ruins at Wupatki and Walnut Canyon (http://www.nps.gov/sucr/parkmgmt/flag_parks.htm). Climb the trail of the O'Leary Peak, another volcano, to see into the Sunset Crater. If you are interested in space exploration, don't miss the Lowell Observatory (http://www.lowell.edu/visit.php)--that's where Pluto was discovered. Here are some ideas on Flagstaff resources and nearby attractions: http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2013/01/05/two-craters-and-two-ruins/ about 7 years ago

    What can you tell me about Flagstaff, AZ for winter and summer activities...where to eat..etc?

    I was impressed with Flagstaff. We were very pleased to stay at the historic Weatherford Hotel (http://www.weatherfordhotel.com/), it's a local institution. We found the best coffee at Flagstaff Coffee Company (http://www.yelp.com/biz/flagstaff-coffee-company-flagstaff) and excellent lunch/dinner options at its sister Flagstaff Brewery, next door. I loved Flagstaff's Lowell Observatory, where they discovered Pluto, and the USGS Astrogeology Science Center is also very impressive. Apart from the Grand Canyon, we enjoyed seeing the surreal Sunset Crater Volcano and ruins at the Wupatki National Monument. There is a huge Meteor Crater close by too. When you arrive, just go to the Visitor's center at the old train station on Route 66--and they will help you plan your stay.
