When To Visit: You can travel to the USA at any time of year, with it’s seasons mirroring those of other northern hemisphere countries. Spring and Summer are between March and August; Winter is between September and February. March/April and August/September provide optimum temperatures and fewer crowds.
Visa Requirements: A Visa Waiver Program (ESTA) is in place for citizens of several countries, which allows those citizens to enter the USA for a period of 90 days without a visa. However, with most countries, Visa requirements change often, and I urge you to check with the State Department a few months prior to your intended arrival.
Travel Within The USA: The best American adventures come from road tripping and you can get cheap car hire with HolidayAutos. However if you are short on time, it may be worth throwing in a few internal flights to get you from A to B. Check out Skyscanner & Momondo for the best deals!
Travel Vaccinations: There are no specific exotic vaccination requirements for visiting the USA, however it is expected that you ensure your basic/routine immunizations are up to date.
