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?

The web is filled with basic information like how far it is from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, or how to…

Hi all
Myself and a friend are planning on doing some sort of road trip in the states starting mid September. We have about 16 days in total for the trip so with arrival/ departure say about 14 days for the road trip. We plan to rent a camper van and so cut costs for accommodation, cooking .

Our initial plan was to rent the camper van on the West Coast (probably San Francisco or LA) and travel across the states to Boston and fly home from there. Aiming to take in some national parks along the…

Hi guys,

Our 22 year old daughter will travel with us along the Kenai penninsula from Anchorage as far as Seward, but then has an extra week whilst we take a cruise. (so she will have already been to girdwood, Alyeska, Portage glacier, Seward). She's travelling alone, no car and on a student budget. She loves hiking, wildlife, photography and scenery, but understandably a but anxious about hiking alone ( safety, bears, getting lost). Also the public transport seems a bit limited. She'll be…

Hi,

Looking for recommendations for remote / off the beaten track campsites in Vermont. Don't mind having to trek a bit to get there.

Thanks!

My husband and me will be in Chicago this August for five days and want to drive to New York, spend 3 days in Manhattan. We have four days between Chicago and Manhattan that we want to use driving around the country.
Was looking at road trips and saw that the vineyards in New York seem quite interesting. As well as the Finger Lakes/ Niagara drive.
Which would be a better drive, the lakes or vineyards, can we do both.
Any advice on driving routes and accommodations are welcome!

Thanks

Mel

Hey all,

So my wife and I spent a season (about three years) on the road and living abroad. We did SE Asia/India and lived in the UK (followed by the obligatory European road trip). We have since moved back 'home,' bought a house, settled in (and down), had three kids (5 and a set of 3 year old twins), and built careers.
We also have a monthly conversation about when we should sell it all and leave again. I don't think we are at that stage (yet) but we did recently buy a twenty year…

Aloha,
we are planning our trip to Hawaii and we want to camp in Spencer Beach Park, but we have a night dive planned in Kona and the website states that the gate closes at 9pm and that there is no entry after 9pm...
https://hawaiicounty.ehawaii.gov/camping/all,details,57797.html
**=> Is that only for cars and we can walk back in? or we can not enter the campsite at all after 9pm?

Does anyone have experience on this?
Mahalo for the feedback,
Hlore
