re: Santa Barbara and Ventura reccomendations? - dtiger1
Santa Barbara is one of the best places I've ever visited. Just a great sleepy beach atmosphere with awesome architecture and a beautiful mountain backdrop. Rent bikes and ride around the little downtown area. Ride to the courthouse, it's awesome. Eat at Mac's Fish and Chips...dudes are straight fro...

re: Your top 5 OVERRATED tourist destinations (US Only) - dtiger1
Yes, add LA to the list. Vastly overrated. Nice surrounding beaches and the Griffith Observatory is cool but been twice and both times was really underwhelmed. NYC is 100 times better....

re: Your top 5 OVERRATED tourist destinations (US Only) - dtiger1
Hard to think of 5 right away but one that comes to mind is Niagara Falls. Don't get me wrong, beautiful sight to see and the boat trip into it is great. But the area surrounding it is SO cheesy and such a money grab...you only need a few hours there honestly, then move on...Navy Pier in Chicago is ...

re: Nutria problem - dtiger1
Have a fence but they are chewing up a portion of the land b/t fence and water. Honestly I'd love a gator or 2, in fact we've had one every summer the last few years and I'm not opposed but it is a neighborhood with an HOA and you know how that goes, everybody freaks at a 2-3 foot gator. Also why I'...

Nutria problem - dtiger1
I live on a good sized pond in a neighborhood in Ascension that backs up to the forest. Been there nearly 4 years...but in the last year, I've been battling these things making holes in my backyard waters edge. I've got 2 traps and have tried on land and in water with sweet potatoes and carrots and ...

re: Toronto in August for baseball series, need hotel recs - dtiger1
We stayed at the Delta Hotel last year and went to a Jays game. It was perfect! Great hotel. You can literally walk one block and your to the Rogers Centre...which is also right next to the CN Tower and aquarium. So convenient and the restaurant at the top of the tower was excellent with incredible ...

Ha good point! Thanks. My first visit to NYC we did most of the touristy stuff so am considering staying in Brooklyn to have a different experience. Just wanted to know if any pros/cons to staying on one side or the other if planning to visit both within a week trip. I'd prefer this trip to visit so...

re: Niagra Falls - dtiger1
Canada side. No need to stay more than a night. You will appreciate the time there and the beauty of it but only do the boat ride and if you are able, do the helicopter ride, but none of the other "stuff". It's about the most cheesy, touristy area you'll find. Almost kinda sad how cheesy it is...we ...
