Re: Caribbean Recommendations

We almost always travel to the caribbean in October. The rates are still summer rates and the weather is usally good. I say "usually good" because last year we DID in fact get hit by a hurricane while on Tortola last October. You say you are ready to "reason with hurricane season" but just keep in m...

Re: Annapolis, MD

Here's a mini trip report for anyone interested. If anyone wants more info on any of the restaurants, just PM me. Friday we had lunch at Mikes. I had a dozen oysters and a softshell crab sandwich. My wife had a lump crabcake sandwich. The food was very good and the service was fair. We arrived there...

Re: Boston Hotels....In the City or the Burbs

Check out either the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge (short walk to greenline ) or the Cambridge Marriott (Redline stop in building) Not sure of the prices but they'll be cheaper than downtown and fit your criteria.

Re: Annapolis, MD

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I think Cantlers made the short list. :lol: Based on the responses I think we may just reverse our plans and head over the Bridge to St. Michaels and on to Tilghman on Friday afternoon. With the long days of summer upon us we'll still have a lot of time to explore...

Thanks SchoolGirl, Your excellent bridge and newport anaologies gives me a good idea what we're in for. Good tips on parking too!

My wife and I are headed to Annapolis this weekend so I can do the Bay Bridge Swim. We should be in town by Noon on Friday and are leaving Monday afternoon. We're staying at the Springhill Suites just outside of downtown. I have done some research on things we want to see but the most important thin...

Good news on Quito's, it's a fun spot and a good choice for dinner. The owners of Mongoose have the only house DIRECTLY on CGB---way to the left of Rhymers and Quito's. Most guest hang out in front of this little house and I anticipate we'll be there most of the time. It is a nice honor to hang the ...

This is our first time to Caneel. Normally it's way out of our price range but if you go during Hurricane season it's not as expensive! :D

No problem with the rum punch!! I hear they give you one at the airport and I know they give them to you on the Caneel ferry.

I love CGB... :D I highly recommend the Mongoose Apartments!! Great place--huge room, the owner (Sandra) is great, and it's just a 3 minute walk down a coconut palm lined lane to Cane Garden Bay (next to Stanley's Welcome Bar, the best place to enjoy a cheeseburger and a pina colada). We only went ...

We'll be on Tortola for the October 14th Full Moon Party too but honestly am not sure if we'll go. We attended one two years ago and while I enjoyed it, I wasn't overly impressed. If you've never been I HIGHLY encourage you to go---if for no other reason than to say you did it. Just don't set your e...

Holiday Isle was open as of three weeks ago but I'd strongly suggest you skip this place it is really only a shadow of it's former self and not worth your time. There are many many more worthy bars to stop for a drink on the way to key west.

Lot P10 North is on the north side of Route 1 almost directly across from the stadium. It is traditionally accessable only for folks heading North on Route one, and when the concert (or game) is over it exits going north only. Early yesterday though, around 10:30, you could enter from either north O...

Being a native New Englander I'm conditioned to outrageous parking fees (don't like them, but have come to expect them) so the $40 isn't that upsetting to me. I don't like the fact the parking lots are spread out over close to 1 1/2 miles--from the End Zone to the South to Foxboro terminals to the N...

English Harbor Rum

This is by far the best rum I've ever had. It's made in Antigua and unfortunately it doesn't appear that you buy it in the US. They do distribute it to Canada (or so their website says) and I'm curious if anyone has ever seen it in the states. I'd love to get my hands on some for the upcoming Gillet...

I'm guessing the tailgate situation will be similiar to Greatwoods. They say gates open at 11am but when traffic starts backing up they open the gates. I'd guess the Gillette lots will open by 12 the latest. They'll have to to keep route 1 traffic flowing
