Welcome to the tourist office

The Wikivoyage tourist office is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in the world. Wikivoyage volunteers will do their best to find the relevant information (or just reply off the top of their expert heads) and reply to you.

Before you ask your question here, be sure to search our travel guide for the destination or topic you're considering. Many questions are already answered within our guides! In addition, some of our destinations have docents who have volunteered to answer questions about specific places. If neither of those avenues bear fruit, then please ask away!

This page is for travel-related questions only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub. Queries regarding general information on non-travel topics may be made at Wikipedia's Reference desk; some topics tangentially related to travel include:

  • the Humanities desk, which deals with geopolitics, culture, and human geography
  • the Science desk, which deals with natural processes, physical geography, and engineering (vehicles, transportation design, etc.)

Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.

Answered questions will be moved to the Archives after two weeks of inactivity.

Want a faster answer?

How can I get my question answered?

  • Explain clearly what you want to know.
  • Provide a short heading that gives the general topic of the question.
  • Tell us what part of the world your question applies to.
  • Don't post personal contact information – it will be removed. We'll answer here within a few days.

When is St. Thomas, V.I. USA carnival?[edit]

Asked by: 68.131.19.73 18:02, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Oh look, a website: found by using Google. --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 18:40, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

They're having their Carnival after Lent? Sacrilege! Well, if Carnival was rampant popery as is, this is even more rampant popery! Hobbitschuster (talk) 20:00, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Potpourri, my dear! --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 21:22, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but "popery" is just an inherently funny word. Hobbitschuster (talk) 21:23, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Richmond VA parking[edit]

Does anyone here know about weekend parking in Richmond, Virginia? In particular, what are the garage rates, do they enforce parking meters, and the like? To my surprise, neither the city page nor Richmond/Downtown says much of anything about parking, other than general warnings not to park in dangerous areas, not to leave valuables visible in your car, etc. All I'm finding online is years-old comments on forums, and nothing looks particularly useful for a potential traveller in the spring of 2017; even the city's parking website has a prominent dead link.

Nyttend, the Tourist office is a better place for questions like this, so I moved yours here from the pub. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 00:12, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
Oops, sorry. I didn't remember about this page, and I thought the travellers' pub was where "help me travel to X" questions were supposed to go. Nyttend (talk) 01:07, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
