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.

Montreal - 4 nights

but as I am about to leave, and still have to plan most of my trip, I really need your help again!

So, after long searches and loads of reading, my sister finally decided to join me for 2 weeks, during which we will be traveling between Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and such.
