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…

Hi There
I was hoping to travel with my bike in a packed bike box from O'hare to a hostel downtown Chicago. Seems its best to take the "blue Line Train" but will they let me on with a bike box?
I would be catching a train from the airport about 3pm and back to airport bout say 6.30am . Any thoughts from people who may know how the Chicago system works with regards to bikes?
thanks

Hi,
We're at the early stages of considering options for a spring 2017 east coast road trip - starting and ending in New York. After 5 days in New York, we want to travel to Philadelphia and Washington DC and the rest is up for negotiation! As we're travelling from Europe, we're unashamedly going for the big-hits! (it'll be years before we can afford flights to the US again!)

One option we're looking at is making our way down to Savannah:

5th - 10th April - New York
11th Philadelphia
12th…

Hello fellow travelers,

I am planning to spend a few days in Portland this fall and am hoping to be able to experience some of the wonderfully, quirky things about the city that inspired the TV show Portlandia. I'm all about sustainability, clean living and environmental conservation so if you can think of any activities/experiences etc that are in that vein, I'd love to hear about t"hem. I'll likely be traveling with a small group (2-4).

Where should we eat? organic, vegetarian, locally…

my husband and i are visiting Maine in October. I am thinking of reserving on what they call the quieter side of Acadia NP. Is that area still convenient to visiting the park each day? We will be in that area of Maine for about 6 days.

Hey everybody,

I am Mila, 23 years old from the Netherlands. In October, me and my girlfriend will be landing in Boston to spend 90 days traveling in the USA. We would really like to buy a used (camper) van so that we can sleep in it, and sell it at the end of our trip (in San Fransisco). We did some research already and found out that some aspects might be difficult, such as finding a reliable van in the area around Boston, registering it and finding an insurance that's not too expensive. So…
