The Ultimate USA Travel Guide

186 Views

From the soaring skyscrapers of New York City to the dramatic mesas of Arizona, the USA is a place of staggering beauty and extraordinary diversity

You could easily spend a lifetime in the US and still feel like you’ve just scratched the surface.Its epic in every scale. This is a place where you can watch the thunderous spectacle of Niagara Falls ccruise along California’s glorious pacific cost cattle ranching in the midwest and imbibe live jazz in New Orleans.

The USA’s manmade landscapes are nearly as spectacular as the natural ones. New york city boasts some of the most impressive skyscrapers. The more I travel around the states, the more I realize it has so much to offer!


Best Time to visit

The US is a massive country with two long coasts, large canyons, and cities famed across the world for their superb amenities, the country is a treat to visit no matter what time of the year you travel..The northern half of the country is cold during winter months (November to March) but this is the best time to visit the US if you’re looking to travel to the southern states or for indoor activities in the cities. Spring (April to July ) is the best time to visit the US if you’re looking to travel to one of the national parks, like Yellowstone or the Joshua tree. As the snow melts, the wildlife comes back out into the open and the lovely warm weather makes it perfect for outdoor activities.

Summer (July To August ) is the best time to travel to the US  if you want to attend one of the several famous festivals in the country. The 4th of July celebrations is one of the grandest spectacles in the world. Summer is a good time to visit sites like the Grand Canyon. Autumn (September-October) is one of my favorite times to travel to the US, as the foliage acquires a reddish hue, and the weather cools down.


Things To Know

The most commonly spoken language in the USA is English.

The currency in the USA is the US Dollar.

Make sure you have health and travel insurance before your visit – health care costs are some of the highest in the world here.

The US is one of only a few countries to still use the Imperial system.

Credit cards and bank cards are usually the preferred mode of payment.

The plugs in the USA are type A and B. The standard voltage is 120 V, . I recommend buying a universal adapter.

The US spans six time zones; make sure you know which time zone your destination is in for your flights and airport transfers.

You Must be 25 Years Old to Rent a CarSorry, rental company rules, not mine.

Each state in the USA has its own laws that you must abide by when you visit.
