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…

Buying a car (Ohio)

Hi,

I'm 25 and am coming to the US next week on the 12 month work and holiday visa. I plan to buy a car as I want to spend significant time in national parks and I want the freedom of being able to go where I want, when I want (within and between places). I don't know how long I will actually stay in the USA for, but it won't be less than 10 months.

I fly into Chicago and will spend a few days there before heading to Cincinnati, where I will be for a while at least. I plan to buy a car in…

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.

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. ​
