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,

I'm travelling to the US in November, arriving in New York City. I wanted to know which would be the best route, travelling between the following cities after leaving New York.

Boston, Chicago, Washington and Philadelphia.

After these cities, I'll be travelling to Florida, followed by New Orleans and Texas; departing from LA.

Thanks,
Carmelo

Hi All,

I'm planning a trip later this year where i would go the to US for a few weeks and then spend two months in Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. All of this, including my arrival back home, would be within 90 days of my initial arrival in the US.

When i leave the US/Mexico does the Visa Waiver that i have become void or is it valid until the 90 days ends?

If it is void can i easily apply for another visa waiver or will i not be able to because the 90 days wouldn't have passed or its too…

Hi Everyone,

I have never been to the US before, and am planning a 3 week East Coast roadtrip with my GF. We are turning 30 this year, and are looking to get a feel for as much of the country as possible whilst still having a relaxing (not too hectic) holiday).

Our only constraints are that we fly into Boston and out of Miami, have 24 days total during Aug/Sept, and want to spend some time with relatives in Miami and Hartford Connecticut.

So far I have some up with:

Day 1 Boston
Day 2 Boston

Hey! Me and my best bud are travelling across the US from the 20th June, starting in Boston and ending in San Fran. We are from the UK and have some experience of US between us but not planned a trip of this scale before. We'd really like some advice on accommodation, is it best to book the majority in advance? I like to have a bit of flexibility to move on to the next place if preferred or stay another day in places but appreciate Summer in the US may be too busy to be flexible? Is there a…

Hi, my wife and I are travelling to Boston in June and will be spending 10 days there. We have booked tickets to a Red Sox game already and have a general idea of things we can do and see (Freedom Trail, Samuel Adams brewery, etc) but would love some local tips about interesting things to do that visitors may not be aware of.

We are also thinking of hiring a car and exploring the Cape Cod area for a couple of days. Any advice on where would be a good place to base ourselves for a couple of…

Hello! :)

I'm planning a 6 month trip through america (June-November). Although I've done a loooottt of research, information varies greatly and still have a couple of doubts when it comes to the costs of some plans I've previously mad. I'll travel solo, intend to stay in hostels and motels and cook some of my meals.

When it comes to accomodation I'm incredibly unsure about these three points below and would like some advice and real costs of each.

*My first stop will be New York City and I…
