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…

Hiya

Sorry if this questions has been asked a million times, but I haven't been able to find the answer!
I am flying to Toronto from the UK next month on a British passport and then driving to New York.

I understand that I don't need to get an ESTA if I'm entering the US by land, but we were hoping to take an internal flight from Martha's Vineyard to New York and then fly out of JFK back to London

Does anyone know if I need to get an ESTA given I'll be flying?

Thanks so much!

Trying to decide where to stay when visit Blackwater Falls State Park in early November. Debating between Blackwater Falls State Park Lodge and Canaan Valley Resort, though would be open to other suggestions if people have them. Thanks.

solar eclipse

Does anyone want to drive to Nashville, TN or Georgetown South Carolina to be in the totality of the solar eclipse? Looking to leave Saturday and return is flexible-- (likely Tues).I am getting together a group for a roadtrip. Need a fun loving yet responsible travel partner-- someone who wants to let loose and values exploring a different part of the country and loosening up a bit.

Personally, I wear a lot of hats in life and I think I can relate well to people but if you are generally not a…

Hi guys,

I'm a 23 year old Australian traveller. I've done a lot of travel all around the world and a few years ago I went to Iran with a friend for four weeks, we were back-packing, went skiing, and just saw the sights.

I am now applying for a tourism VISA to go to the U.S. Has anyone had any trouble with having been to Iran and then going to the U.S? Will they ask me about it in the VISA interview and is there anything important I should say?

Sam

Hi guys,

I am an Australian wanting to visit the U.S for a long vacation next year (mid March 2018 until early August 2018).
I have completed my DS-160 form applying for a B-1/B-2 VISA, and am ready to pay for it and book the interview. However I am wondering how long my VISA will be valid for and how long I'll have before I have to leave and use it.
I wouldn't want it to expire in 6 months (Feb 2018) and I have to get another one before I leave.

Thanks
Sam

Hi Everyone!

Me and a few of my friends are planning a road trip from Miami to Houston, we have a car and 16 days for the trip. We are 5 single British guys, so basically our interests are partying and fun activities (adventure sports/ outdoor activities) and moderate amounts of cultural stuff (to break up the drinking). We start in Miami on 3rd November and leave Houston on 19th November, currently the only other place we know we want to go to is New Orleans. Depending on weather we are happy…
