USA branch FAQ

This branch covers: Mainland USA, Hawaii & Alaska

So many posts request the impossible - that a bunch of people who have never met you magically intuit how much you have to spend and what will make you happy on vacation, generally planning out your route for three months and helping you get discount flight reservations.

So, what can you do to get great travel advice?

1. Do your homework
The web is filled with basic information like how far it is from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, or how to…

Will be staying a few days in Sunnyvale without a car in September. Just wondering if there are any recommended stops along the Caltrain route besides Palo Alto and Mountain View, where we have already been. Or just head straight for our favourite spots in San Francisco?

Hi
I am a single female traveler from London and looking to book a tour for the west coast. The Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Sequoia National Parks and Lake Tahoe and San Diego are the main sites that I'd like to visit.
Could anyone please suggest a rated tour group I could travel with and book a 10-12 day trip with?

Hi, I am in a situation which is different from most of the posts here from people who visited Iran, Iraq, etc. I come from a country which is not from the Visa Waiver Program in the first place (i.e. Philippines) so I've always had to get a visa to visit the USA.

My latest USA visa from when I applied and got a 10 year multiple entry US Visa back in 2011.

However in 2012 I visited Iran.

Will this render my existing visa void and that I have to reapply? Otherwise my visa only expires in 2021.

Probably worth noting for anyone flying within or out of the US that there are lines of up to three hours to clear TSA at some airports, particularly the larger ones such as Atlanta and O'Hare. There are efforts at solutions but with peak season arriving soon it is probably advisable for everyone get to their airport early.

I did T4 JFK a few weeks back and it took more than an hour to crawl through TSA controls (which I expected after previous experience) and I thought that was bad.

I will be taking what I'm calling a "honey-moon road trip" with my almost-husband. We are from Indiana and neither one of us has seen the southwest. We'll be getting married in Las Vegas (typical right?!) and then driving to Los Angeles. We have some time to spend goofing off so I want to know some cool stops we'll be near along the way. We don't mind driving a couple hours off-route for something worth-while. Also, same thing with L.A. to Phoenix. I'm open-minded!

I've done some research so…
