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?

Hello All

I'm going on a Colorado roadtrip with my boyfriend for 2 weeks from the 4th September this year (coming over from England) - camping gear/campsites etc. all booked. Now we are going to book a rafting trip and we will be in the vicinity of Glenwood Springs at that time so looking at half day Shoshone Rapids rafting trip. My boyfriend has done some kayaking in the past so at least knows what an oar is (I know kayaking and rafting are totally different things) - I've not so much as rowed…

Hi
Roadtrip with teenage daughter. First time in the US. I land in Phili, drive to Woodstock to pick her up from summer camp where she is working, then to Niagara, then DC, and finally NY. From 17-27 August. Any tips on which areas are good to stop on the way, is it best to book accommodation beforehand (ie strict,inflexible itinerary)... any suggestions/advice greatly appreciated.

Our trip report details for Oregon this Summer. We prepared a long list of things to do in Oregon. Multnomah Falls, Oneonta Gorge and Crater Lake are the three major driving factors to plan this trip to the northwest. All three are absolutely spectacular and no doubts about that. Frankly, we found some of the other places more enjoyable and exciting. Food tasted FRESH and delicious everywhere. 5 days were definitely not enough to take in Oregon. But by the end of it we were totally blown away. ​

This fall I'm going to be trying to take as many weekend trips in the northeast as possible. I'm pretty familiar with the White Mountains and Acadia, but I'm looking for information on backpacking the Long Trail in Vermont and Baxter State Park in Maine. Ideally I'll make a couple trips to each park in the fall so any 2-5 day backpacking itineraries in either one would be appreciated.
