With 50 states, the United States of America is incredibly diverse. The country stretches from the Pacific Ocean in the west to the Atlantic Ocean in the east, and from Canada in the north to Mexico in the South. Major cities include New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, while the interior is home to desert and mountain landscapes, as well as the prairies of the Midwest.
QUICK USA FACTS
Currency: US Dollar can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout United States of America, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.
Power Points: Most power points are 2 flat prongs. I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter.
Official Language: The official language of United States of America is English
Health: There are no major health concerns in United States of America for travellers. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is generally safe to drink, however, if you are unsure, make sure to ask your hotel receptionist or host.
