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…

Folks, I'm in a dilemma... Help me out here!

I'm staying in NY for 5 nights in December, landing in JFK and leaving from LGA. At the moment I have a few accommodation options but I would welcome some help choosing...

The Local NYC, just across the water in Long Island City, very close to Court Square metro. Looks a really cool place and will work out around $280 for the 5 nights. Just concerned about travel time into Manhattan... Is it a big issue (on the Metro) and how safe would it be…

Hi there,
I (24, German, student) am looking for travel mates from San Francisco (or nearby) to go from the 7, 8 or 9 th october to national parks (Yosemite, or something else in CA or Nevada or Arizona). I don't have a international driver licence so it would be ideal to find someone with a car to share the cost. On the 23rd october is my next flight from LAX.
I would prefer staying in cheap hostels but would buy a cheap tent if that would make sense.
Just drop me a message if that's in the…

Hello everyone,

my wife and I would like to visit California, Arizona and Nevada the next December.
Our idea is to spend time on the road, visiting national parks and deserts.
Therefore, we would love to find a good weather.
I'm not necessarily talking of high temperatures, but for sure
we do not want to travel during in rainy seasons.
Here comes the question. Is December a good month for traveling around
those States or is it better to go in different seasons?

Any advice is appreciated!
Taigo

Hi there
I know it's difficult to get access to the boneyard.
I would like to know whether someone has information about having a good view at the planes from outside the boneyards? I am specially interested in the boneyards at Mojave Airport, Kingman Airport and/or Victorville?
Thanks for your help.
Cheers, Sam
