Thanks @Yehudaa, much appreciated

Check the design hotels. Booked the Giardino Lago hotel in Locarno last year. Gorgeous hotel on the lake for 12k points.
What can one do for kosher food in Locarno? Thanks

Wife and I are going to be in Milan for a week in April and want to go north into southern Switzerland for 2-3 days. Any suggestions of where to stay and what to see? Spg properties? Thanks for the help!
LA5675, We are planning a similar trip. Where did you end up staying and eating; how did it work out, any advice? Thanks

94
In July/Aug there is a kosher program at the Kempsinki St Moritz 3h from Milan
Thanks, but I am planning a trip in May or June. Any other good ideas?

Where is the best place to stay for Shabbos in Switzerland and/or Northern Italy Lake region (but not Venice as we have been there already)

Hi all, would appreciate any help anyone would offer on this.
Planning a trip with my 14 year old son for a week after Shavuos (belated Bar mitzva gift). Will be based in Yerushalayim, but want to give him a good time from the whole country, a little nervous about driving there but will if I have to. Prefer to not sleep over outside Yerushalayim, so looking more for day trips.
Any trip ideas of stuff you may have done with that age that were really can't miss?
He (and definitely his out of shape father  ;D) not really the athletic type for long hikes and such. TIA!

I was just invited to be flown in to give some lectures in Miami ... in early July. :( The speeches alone aren't enough to fill my time there or make the trip worthwhile, so even with my expenses covered, is it worth it to go there in the summer?

I'm not a huge foodie, so the restaurant scene isn't enough of a draw, and I wouldn't be comfortable going to mixed beaches.

Are there enough activities there (e.g. Everglades) that would be pleasurable in July to fill a few days to justify making a trip out of it? Or will I be miserable the whole time due to humidity, storms, and mosquitoes?
Yes, Miami is hot in July. So swimming, either beach or pool, is a major draw. An early morning, or evening, walk on the boardwalk/promenade might be nice, and you might find some isolated pool/beach time at a quiet time or location. There is a deserted area at Haulover Park that was frequented by Chasidic men, but be careful as there are no lifeguards there and there was a tragic drowning last year. Another activity may be boating, or fishing, if you are interested.

Would TSA mind if I pour liquid NyQuil (non-prescription cold medicine) into an empty container smaller than 3.4 ounces and then put that into a clear plastic bag?

Post Pesach Update for my upcoming trip:

What, in your opinion, are the best restaurants in Yerushalayim for a nice dinner?
And the best for a dairy or pareve lunch?   

Thanks!

No need to answer but I'm curious why you want something on the "mehadrin" level.
Do you know anything about any of the different types? Anything at all about their standards? Have a Rav in Israel who knows them well who told you Mehadrin is good but not less?
Iím aiming at matching the level I eat here which is Glatt Kosher and with what I believe is a reliable hashgocha, such as OU. I really do not know much in response to your questions. Once upon a time when I visited my kids in Yeshiva in EY they set the Mehadrin standard which I continued to follow.

102
You should probably try to give an idea of what hechsherim you eat. 1868 is rabbanut IINM & crave is rabbanut mehuderet.
Apparently they are both Rabbanut Mehuderet. Is that same as Mehadrin? I would want something on the Mehadrin level.

How does Gefen explain the label? More importantly, what will they do to inform the public before Pesach? Not everyone will read the English, especially if sold in Israel and even here in some Chasidishe areas.
