re: Anyone Currently at the beach? - jsquardjj
We are at gulf shores and they are letting us sit on the beach, but back by the dunes. Everyone once in awhile, we will see someone from the condos nearby make a mad dash into the water and then sprint back before the police dune buggies get them. ...

re: Anyone Currently at the beach? - jsquardjj
I was reading the Gulf Shores closure article, and it looks like just public beach access points are being closed (limiting the spring breakers that are staying in hotels off of the beach) but if you have a gulf front house, you would still have the beach in front of your home to use. Is my understa...

Anyone Currently at the beach? - jsquardjj
Heading to Orange Beach in a few days. Both of us have been told to work remotely and of course the kids are out of school so we still plan to go. House on the beach, so no worries about being around people in a shared condo pool. If they closed the beach, could they tell us not to sit in front ...

re: Would you take the family on a beach trip over the next three weeks? - jsquardjj
We booked a 7 bedroom house for three weeks in gulf shores yesterday with another family. We wanted to be close enough in case we needed to drive back and forth for any reason. The reservation company said this was the busiest two days they have ever experienced. A lot of houses we were looking a...

re: Are people going to stay home or where ARE they going to go? - jsquardjj
We do a different national park every June. This year is Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. I hope that it doesn't get more crowded than normal, but I agree with your theory. I noticed beach prices are staying steady along the gulf coast. ...

re: Most overrated and expensive vacation spots - jsquardjj
Agreed. Now that I think about it, even an "overrated" part of Thailand is better than 90% of other beach destinations I have been to. Man I miss those $6 massages and $2 plates of mango sticky rice on the beach. ...

re: Most overrated and expensive vacation spots - jsquardjj
[quote]There is absolutely nothing expensive about Thailand. In fact it’s underrated and inexpensive.[/quote] In comparison to other parts, Phuket is more expensive and more well known, thus being overrated. There are plenty of lesser known islands nearby that are just as beautiful, cheaper, less...

re: Most overrated and expensive vacation spots - jsquardjj
Hawaii - not a bad vacation, but the price tag makes it overrated. Paris. I tried three different times...and I just don't get it. The smaller cities in France are loads better and a fraction of the cost. I know that many will argue this one. Phuket, Thailand Downtown L.A. ...

re: Parades this weekend - jsquardjj
This is actually a great weekend for parades. They are starting to get bigger, but without all of the loads of tourists that come in next week. Cleopatra tonight is pretty good. Better to go up St Charles between Jackson and Napoleon to catch it. ...

re: 2nd Boston Trip - Paging Abitafan08 - jsquardjj
Haha thank you for again for the recommendations. I will definitely add those to the list. Any steak favorites, doesn't have to be a steak house, but more carnivorous offerings? I think by the end of the trip last time we were outdone with seafood and that is why we ended up at Davios next to th...

2nd Boston Trip - Paging Abitafan08 - jsquardjj
Heading to Boston again in a few weeks. This will be my second time going, thanks to work. Last time I used the Boston Trip thread and it was spot on. Great info. I stay at the Revere near the commons and have about 3 dinners/nights free, 2 mornings and maybe 1 lunch if I am lucky. The rest of th...

re: Backpacking through Mexico, Belize, Roatan, and Panama - jsquardjj
I would say a hostel is a very general term. Some are party hostels, but there are plenty with a much more laid back vibe or more on the B&B sector. I owned 2 hostels, both of which were more on the laid back vibe and had plenty of older guests stay in the private rooms. I would say our average gues...
