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,
Myself and my husband are driving down from Nova Scotia to Massachusetts as we want to explore boston and the surrounding area, as well as Rhode Island. We want to stay at a 'home base' so to speak on the coast of Mass. somewhere for at least 5 days.
The question is where would be a good place to stay on the coast that would have some facilities but also be a travelable distance to Boston itself and the rest of Mass. and RI for day trips? Many thanks

Hi there, I was hoping for some advice or good links to information in regards to exploring National parks during the busy summer months.

Me and my wife will be travelling to the USA and are planning a road trip across the southwest, and then across the north-west. We want to hit many national parks and would prefer to camp and hike in as many as possible.

Money Exchange

Hi everyone! I'm going to Philippines soon and I just want to know the best option for money exchange.
Is it better to change a dollar to PESO here in the U. S. than changing it directly to the Philippines?
And if yes, can you give me more information about how much will be the difference?
Thanks in advance.

I know, strange question, but does anyone have any recommendations for a hotel in Manhattan, near all the touristy stuff like Times Square, that doesn't have carpet? We've got family from out of the country coming to visit us in California next January. But they're stopping in NYC first and want to see all the sights. AND... one of them has a pretty serious dust mite allergy and has a hard time breathing in rooms with carpet. They're looking early because they want to try and get a good deal…

I’m traveling to lake George for a week this summer from Virginia and we are considering extending our trip to Vermont. We have a 3 year old and 8 week old.

I’ve heard that Burlington, Shelburne, Waterbury, and Stowe are all great places to go. We would like a mix of cultural activities and tasty food along with just outdoor/leisure.

Burlington, it looks like the echo science museum, waterfront, and church market are some of the big places to visit and then Shelburne museum south 9 miles and…
