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.

I'm going to be on vacation the whole month of August and want to enjoy a nice long trip before heading back to work. I don't have an itinerary and am really open to ideas. If you have an itinerary or things you want to do let me know I'm game otherwise I'm down for winging it. I can also put a plan together, no problem I just didn't…

This will be my first time in the US of A, and i couldnt be more excited.
So here's whats up, me and my companion Aga, are planning a mini road trip from Chicago to NY starting on the 12th of August. The plan is too take an alternative fun route, arrive in NY on Sunday 14th and see some interesting things along the way.

I also have my hunting knife, a fold up…

Desperately needing advice on best way to spend NYE in NYC 2016/2017,family of 4 with teenage sons 18 and 16 yo. We are staying on 54th Street a couple of blocks south of Central Park. Would love a good vantage point for fireworks. Worth going to Times Square? Budget mid range- won't have crazy money to spend but as this will probably be the only time we will be in New York as a family for NYE we would like to do it justice.

Hello everyone!
My girlfriend and I are going to Canada in two weeks. We're thinking of a quick 1-day visit to Seattle from Vancouver but we don't have any USA visa.

If flying from Europe to the US an ESTA would be needed. However, since we've been a week in Iran last April, we cannot get an ESTA but rather need to apply for a traditional (and time-consuming) visa we couldn't get before we leave.

So, we're wondering if the same rules apply if…
