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…

Hi All,

I haven't been here in forever but suddenly, it came to mind that I should consult here for ideas.
What is it about?

My inlaws will come visit in April and I want to take them on a memorable trip while still paying attention of how much money I'm spending!
The in-laws are from Spain and like basketball, and since we're from Vancouver. BC, I thought to take them to a Clippers playoff game in LA. Now, we're pretty flexible in term of dates but I'd like to show them a few more things in the…

This is just a thank you for all the advice we were given a couple of months ago while planning out trip. The trip was so successful and we had so many additional beautiful surprises along the way. On your advice we took the back roads which was well worthwhile.

We travelled from Tucson to Holbrook. We were later leaving than we planned as the car hire took awhile (we were upgraded to a very comfortable vehicle. Excellent service) and stopped at Biosphere 2 on the way. Our GPS wasn't working…

Hello!

I'm a UK citizen with a current valid ESTA. I entered the US at the beginning of January, setting my visa waiver running, and it expires at the end of March. I only actually stayed in the US for five days, and after that went to Mexico. I do understand that being in Mexico counts towards my 90 days in the US; this is not my issue - my concern is that I intend to return to the US for about a month in mid-May, directly from Mexico. Does being in Mexico count as having 'left' the US, in…

Flying in and out of SFO or SJC (we are flexible on this). Should have 11 or 12 full days for our total trip. We are in our 30's and like wine, hiking, driving along the coast and coastal towns/cities. How would you plan our trip given our highlights below?

Our highlights to see would be (most important are first):
*Sonoma Valley
*Carmel/Monterey/Big Sur
*Yosemite
*San Francisco
*Redwoods/Avenue of the Giants worth skipping?
*Are we missing anything major in these areas that is a must see?

Thank you…
