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…

Hey Everyone,

If any of you are planning to visit Chicago sometime soon, here was me and my friends trip! We stayed 4 days, 3 nights. I highly suggest buying the CityPass because it allows you access to 360Chicago, SkyDeck, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, and Shedd Aquarium; which can get pretty pricey individually. We stayed in the Marriott Fairfield Inn off E Ontario St. The hotel is across the street from Northwestern Hospital and is walking distance to everywhere you need to go. I was able…

JFK > Battery Park

Hello! I will be arriving in NY on Friday at about 4:15PM for a full 24 hour layover and I need to get over to battery park. I've read about all this AirTrain stuff but I'm quite confused.... What is the cheapest way to get from JFK to Battery park and how do I do it? Time isn't too much a factor as much as cost is. There will be two of us. Any help is appreciated! Thanks. :)

Hi all!

I have off from work for 9 days next October and Ive always wanted to drive up the west coast. I want to go from LA to Vancouver. Do you think this is feasible? A quick look at google maps suggests its a 20 hour drive -roughly 2 hours drive a day....but we all know how wrong google maps can be! I could shorten it to Seattle if that makes more sense. Id like to see as much as possible on the way. Im a photographer and I'd love to hear what you think would be worth stopping by or…

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.
