    Who does a good kayak tour in this area

    I did a 5-day kayak/camping trip in northern BC with Bruce Wilson and Norn Hahn who teamed up for our small group. They were both fantastic guides, friednly, knowledgeable and Bruce was especially experienced. Both live in BC and run all manner of kayak trips in/around BC and Tofino year round. You can find more on both here: Bruce: http://www.wildwhisper.com/contact.html A list of kayak resources, including Tantalus Adventures: http://www.kayakonline.com/british_columbia.html about 10 years ago

    good places to eat?

    Raincity Grill and Wild Rice were good. Robson street is lively and has a lot of excellent places to choose from-just stroll the street from Burrard towards Stanley Park. about 10 years ago

    I've got a day in LA waiting for flight connections. What can I do that won't leave me broke? Cheers

    Years ago when I had a long transfer I took the bus from the airport to Manhattan Beach (ask the information desk at the airport about where to catch them and timetables). Huntington beach is also a nice place to check out, rent bike/roller blades, have a meal, walk the beach etc. Near Venice Beach is the very cool neighborhood of Abbot Kinney: shops, galleries, weird boutiques, artsy. Good grub and bars there too. over 10 years ago

    Two days in LA - what can I do that doesn't involve shopping?

    All of the above are great ideas. Condsider too: a walkgn tour Echo park or Chinatown. http://www.lacityhistory.org if you like architecture check out http://www.laconservancy.org/ for events/ideas and neighborhoos to check out. If you like hiking, the loop of Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills-you'll get great views of downtown LA and Hollywood sign, a great work out and be amongst the locals walking their dogs and being part of the scene. You may even see some 'stars'. Las Felices is a cool neighborhood as is Sunset Junction for a bar crawl. Big fan of brunch at Chateau Marmot too! over 10 years ago

    Where is the best nightlife in Croatia?

    Dubrovnik had no shortage of places to quaff a few off the main cobbled street in Old Dubrovnik. Don't miss the bar in the fortress walls overlooking the sea! Trogir was also a great town on the water further north in Croatia. Very lively and happening with bars and restaurants along the estuary. over 10 years ago

    Am planning a trip to LA. Have about a week. Any suggestions as to places around LA worth visiting?

    Nice chunk of time to explore the area. I go fairly often and never tire of Runyon canyon in the Hollywood hills for a stint of hiking amongst LAs beautiful people and their dogs. Great views of the Hollywood sign and downtown LA. Allow 2 hours for that I'm a big fan of Abbott Kinney area near Venice beach area: trendy boutiques, stores, restaurants and people watching. The Getty Museum is a gem in Brentwood with great views of downtown and lots of permanent and rotating collections. Good for kids too-check out their websitee for a calendar of events. If you can do a historical walking tour of japan town, it's a entertaining and infomative and near other good neighborhoods in downtown to explore such as Union Station (good market food stalls and kid-friendly.) The Grove is an outdoor 'mall' that seems to priwnt itself to kids-archades, movies, shops and outddoor entertainment. Of course, the beaches are always good fun for the kids. Santa Monica pier is a fave. For what's going on the music scene, check out giglocator.com about 10 years ago

    Most trendy places to go out in NYC (dancing, eating, shopping...)

    The meatpacking District attarts the dance and food crowd with Sans Cubano being a good lark. Irving Place has loive gigs and dance nights, check out their listings. Public restaurant is trendy-book though Can't go woring with anything on the lower east side for trendy and happening. Hotel on Rivington Street bar attracts the crowds, On the Hudson river side, the Hotel gansevoort is very trendy-rooftop pool side bar. Good restaurants in that area too. Nileguide has a listing of cool bars: http://www.nileguide.com/destination/new-york/best/trendy-bars Finally, check out Foodand wine.com and do a search in their directory-they sometimes list latest trendy places before the mass word gets out as does Thrillist.com about 10 years ago

    best hotel in new york state?

    depends what criteria you go by, but W is always good service in various neighborhoods, trendy bars and good food. The Hotel Giraffe has also been good to me. if minding dollar, then bid on Priceline. They have good options in all star-ratings and you can get the rooms for 30-50% rack rate prices. about 10 years ago
