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…

I'm currently living in California and I'll go to the East Coast for 10 days in June.
I will spend 8 days in NY and then I will have 2 extra days to visit either Washington or Boston. I really can't decide between these two, so I need your help.
Boston seems a bit similar to NY, or even Seattle (that I have already visited). Washington is much different, but has too many museums (I don't really enjoy visiting museums while travelling and in such short time).
Which city do you think I…
Million thanks in advance. We're a couple on our thirties, traveling on 10.May to LA to do a 22 day roadtrip. We've booked most of our accommodation a bit "blindly", as this is our first time there, and as much as we try to calculate distances and highlights to see, we're not completely sure of our choices. I guess we won't be until we're there, but just in case someone can give us a bit of advice, it will be greatly appreciated.
When I see the huge map, I realize we might be ambitious, so…
I'm interested in visiting the Falling Water House by Frank Lloyd Wright in Mill Run Pennsylvania, is anyone else visiting this amazing site in July by any chance?
H guys, I am visiting the USA (Western states only) for 3-6 months. I would like to know which MVNO operating on the GSM network with a prepaid/pay as you go offer is the best according to the following criteria: I'm interested in sending/receiving a lot of SMS (to local mobiles only). For example, 100-300SMS/month. No roaming, no international, no data, no nothing, just the cheapest local SMS. I will make/receive the occasional voice call, for example, a few calls/week. I'm interested in a…
Long time lurker but first time poster. You guys are doing a great job!
Have finally started planning a USA trip for the whole family in Early June. I need some advice/critique on the itinerary.
There are some constraints though. My parents will be with us so we can't really do too much running around between cities. Plus will also have two kids (2 and 7). Me and the wife are big on museums so that's important. Have to visit a national park or two if time permits. Need to book flight tickets…
I would like some advice regarding a planned trip for August/September 2018. We were in the US for 6 weeks 2 years ago and had an amazing time and are keen to return (did LA, Washington DC, NY, Boston and drove to Chicago, returning home via Hawaii) . We (male/female late 50's) would fly Melbourne- LA. Then train LA - Tucson - San Antonio -Houston - New Orleans. From New Orleans we would drive to Washington DC taking in the sights. Then train Washington DC to New York. We are thinking…
