What website to order from now?

Since Eagle Optics is gone, I am not sure what site to direct people to that might have a similar amount of variety & a great return time like EO. Any suggestions? Thanks!

If lodging is needed, I HIGHLY recommend the Alamo Inn B&B. Run by a birder, for birders. Located in Alamo and within driving distance of pretty much anything. http://www.alamoinnbnb.com/

Who will be using the bins the most - you or the kids? The Yosemites have a smaller IPD, which will work far better for the kids. The other binoculars may or may not accomodate kids with small IPDs....
