    New York City Warnings and Dangers

    New York is a great place for kids, even small ones. My son was in love with all the noises and sights. He couldn't wait to get moving every morning. He loved Times Square in particular. It's generally an ok place to get around. The museums, shops, hotels and restaurants all have elevators and are usually quite child friendly. People are kind, and...

    Ive been a resident of Sin City for 27 years. Ive lived from one end to the other, from nice places to killing fields and i feel the need to let you in on where to go and where NOT to.

    New Orleans Warnings and Dangers

    Other posters tell you what neighborhoods to avoid and which are "safe". I invite you to notice how idiotic their advice is. Think about it. If the nice neghborhoods have all the money, where do you think the thugs will go to rob people? Bad people can walk or drive a car. "Bad neighborhoods" are not cages. Thugs are not vampires. It is not safer...

    I've lived in Chicago for most of my life and know the city well. Down town area is fairly safe but watch out for groups of teenagers as they have been jumping and mugging people the last few years. Put your IPhone away in transit stops. If someone comes up to you and starts to talk to you at a bus stop etc watch around you for others. Do not go...

    Los Angeles Warnings and Dangers

    LA is a very unsafe place to visit. My daughter from Australia got beaten up last night and robbed of all her possessions (in the central district). No one helped her. The police were not interested and recorded the stolen goods as lost - less paperwork they said. Women are totally unsafe in LA. There are plenty of other places to holiday in the...

    Boston Warnings and Dangers

    People on foot in Boston are some of the friendliest around. When you find yourself down some weird side street, ask directions. But when they get behind the wheel they are A**holes honking! We took this personally at first, but later when we walked around the city, we noticed honking was just a popular past time. But most importantly, get a map...

    Honolulu Warnings and Dangers

    I returned from Hawaii yesterday. The day before we were due to fly home we stopped at Shark Cove on the north shore. We were in a rental car and parked in FoodWay directly across from the beach. We locked the car and took our camera bag and swimming gear across the road and walked 40m across rocks and left our camera bag (with car keys inside) at...

    East Village (Petco Park etc.) is fine, just try to stay out of there after dark. Same with the gaslamp quarter. Do NOT go north of the 5 freeway up to the 8 except for Hillcrest, Mission Valley etc. Although you will probably not venture into these areas, try tobstay out of Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, Barrio Logan, Normal Heights, City Heights,...

    Seattle Warnings and Dangers

    There are so many social services that are taxpayer funded in Seattle, such as very nice apartment complexes built to house "chronic public inebriates," food kitchens, shelters, etc.. Also, a small but loud contingent of homeless choose to live in tent cities that the city basically "tolerates" due to intense political pressures from far-left...

    Fort Lauderdale Warnings and Dangers

    dont swim out too deep, otherwise sharky might get you. I did not have any experience of that kind, however I always heard warnings. So I only swam out to where I could stand. It's a temptation to swim out at that beautiful warm water, but just don't do it.

    We stayed at a hotel called the Wellesley Inn in the East Point area of Atlanta. We went walking at night to the local Arby's and saw three Atlanta police cars in the side lot of the hotel checking someone. On our way back to the room, we saw an Atlanta CSI vehicle going to the same part of the hotel. Also, avoid the fast food restaurants such as...

    Miami Warnings and Dangers

    Miami has a very easy to understand road system. Once you get the hang of it, it should be easy to find your way around. Streets go east west. Avenues go north south. There are four sectors - northeast, northwest, southwest and southeast. The dividing line between north and south is Flagler Street. The east-west dividing line is Miami...

    San Antonio Warnings and Dangers

    Avoid San Antonio on Spring Break. Not only was the traffic terrible, the parking is more expensive and the hours for entertainment are the same. I would like to think that businesses would extend hours to accomodate for the time it takes to get there. Very disappointing not to get to see more of this interesting city.

    Sedona Warnings and Dangers

    I found this so interesting and amazing at the same time. Yet, something we all should heed when hiking in this area. Stay on the paths. Why stay on the paths? The large, black patches of dark, knobby, brittle crust are actually a cryptobiotic crust. The crust is made of lichen, moss, cyanobacteria, liverwort, and fungi. The crust prevents erosion...

    It's almost impossible to tell when you've left the cozy confines of Dallas' city limits and ventured into the netherworld of jar headed thugs scrambling around in high powered Tahoes or Chargers looking to keep their respective municipalities in the black by taking as many motorists to the cleaners as possible. Dallas proper is home to the...

    During my hike of the Valley loop trail we came across a black bear. It was about 2pm just off the trail between us and the South Side drive.

So be alert and if/when you encounter a bear, and it is off the trail, just mind you...

    Nashville Warnings and Dangers

    Tennessee has a "Move-Over Law", the gist of which is: if you see a moving emergency vehicle, you are to move to the far right lane and stay there when possible and safe to do so. This is the case in most states. However, it further states that, if you should see a STATIONARY emergency or recovery vehicle, you should also remove yourself one lane...

    Tucson Warnings and Dangers

    As long as you stay in the TUCSON city limits you should be fine. Do not go to South Tucson which is a city of its own. It is a working class area with gangs and lots of car theft reports. To be on the safe side, just stay north of downtown. Its definitely not one of the most dangerous cities around, but like every other large city, there can be...

    Yellowstone National Park Warnings and Dangers

    Here is a fun and interesting example of what human fed ravens did one day in Yellowstone. One morning, as I was sitting in the Cody, Wyoming’s, Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s garden with Isham, our red-tailed hawk, a visitor told me this true story about an observation he had in the parking lot of one of Yellowstone’s geyser areas. As he and...

    Richmond Warnings and Dangers

    When I first moved to Richmond I had the misfortune of picking a tiny studio off of ChamberlayneHUGEMISTAKE #1. Just to piggyback off of Lil NYs assessment, it is true there are many prostitutes who roam Chamberlayne and there are many drug induced derelicts who do the same. I suspect there are many dwellings that are either haunted or possessed...

    Phoenix Warnings and Dangers

    Maps in Phoenix are not very user friendly. I guess the place is growing so fast that map makers can't keep up. It was frustrating to try to follow the map but streets were not marked or just not on the map (even major streets.) Sometimes there were connecting streets that were simply not on the map. Once we went through a parking lot and found the...

    St. Augustine does not have a class A inlet. If one wants to avoid Matanzas with frequent shoaling, it is adviseable to go out the St. John's River and not try to go out St. Augustine. This picture shows the inlet entrance from the ICW when there was an onshore wind. There is surf all across the inlet, which is not a nice situation to be in with a...

    Nature is beautiful and fun, but be careful among some of the birds in Monterey. The area around the bay is home to more Seagulls than you can begin to count.

    The ocean at Fort Myers Beach is very safe and very clean but you do need to be aware of possible dangers under foot. Stingrays are not always easy to see as they can bury themselves in the sand on the seabed. They don't take kindly to being stepped on and will sting if they are. The stings are not dangerous but are very painful. Also, there can...

    Kailua-Kona Warnings and Dangers

    Yes, you want a souvenir of your vacation but do not remove any lava rocks. As superstition goes; removal of the rocks angers the volcano goddess Pele and brings bad luck to the person. So just go buy a souvenir from ABC... "Take only pictures; leave only footprints." "Take only gifts you are given (like flower lei’s); and leave only with Aloha."

    Long Beach Warnings and Dangers

    OK--I'd say the worst part of LB is bounded by Cherry on the east, PCH on the north, 7th street on the south, and the Los Angeles River on the west. Very grimy and gritty, although pretty interesting part of town--lots of Cambodians, good eats. Low income, no doubt. North Long Beach is overrated for crime. It's very residential, and it's probably...
