When is the Best Time to Visit Miami, Florida?

Dear Editors,

When is the best time to visit Miami?


Hi Valerie,

The good news is there’s really no bad time to visit Miami. Miami is much more than its beautiful beaches and nightlife scene — it’s a major city with cultural events going on virtually every day.

If, however, it’s sun and sand you seek, now (spring) is a lovely time to visit Miami. April’s average temperature is a near-perfect 84 degrees, according to The temperature will climb now through August, peaking at 91 degrees in August. The temperature then begins a slow decline, with the coldest month being January and an average temperature of 76 degrees. In terms of rain, the rainiest month is July.

How Much Are Taxis In Cancun?

Dear Editors,

Is it cheaper and faster to take a taxi from the Cancun airport to your hotel or use the company’s transfer vouchers? How much are taxis in Cancun?


Hi Laurie,

This is not an easy question to answer because there are so many variables. First of all, are the company vouchers free to you or pre-paid? if yes, than it will certainly be cheaper to use the vouchers than pay a taxi driver, though it’s likely you’ll have to wait for other people headed to your hotel before the shuttle leaves. All in all though, this is probably your best bet, provided these are already paid for.

Gnomeversation: Small Talk with a Lake Tahoe Insider

Gnome’s Note: Hello chaps, it’s the Travelocity Roaming Gnome! Even though I have a rather impressive list of travels under my belt, globetrotters like me still fancy a few new travel tidbits now and again. That’s why I’m interviewing Travelocity’s very own destination experts. Meet me here to learn insider tips about smashing places!

Take it from me – and Alaina Henry, one of Travelocity’s ski experts – Lake Tahoe is a simply splendid ski destination! Alaina tells me that the South Shore and North Shore offer visitors fantastically different experiences; she says to go to the south side of the lake for casinos and nightlife and to go to the north side for a more secluded, rustic vibe. Oh, and Lake Tahoe is also known for its amazing photo ops – an important tidbit for those of us who are especially photogenic.

Oh, look; there’s a handsome fellow enjoying one of those magnificent views Alaina speaks of. Wait…is that good looking devil me? I thought it was another chap in a pointy red hat!
