Recently, I took a trip to the States. It was a much-awaited holiday since I had been saving for years for a country that I have always wanted to go to. Now, I know that a lot of my readers are either planning a trip to the US or dreaming about going there! I wanted to take a moment and highlight my travel experience which I feel can help anyone who is planning to go to the United States. I feel that the US is a world of its own and you do deserve to vacation there at least once in your lifetime. For whenever you get the chance, I assure you that this write-up will come in handy.
I travelled to the US with my group of friends for a long weekend. We wanted a change in the environment after the COVID era. The US is a diverse place as it has everything from coastlines to large cities. Every city that we visited has beautiful sceneries and monument attractions. From great accommodations to dining options with mouth-watering tasty eateries, the US is everything you ever expected!
One tourist place that we travelled to in the US and collectively loved was the Yellow Smith National Park. If you are a nature lover and the soothing atmosphere refreshes your mood, this is the place for you. Here, you will find peace and beauty both at the same time.
One of my friends out of the group that I went with is a peace lover. He is the kind of person who likes to go to relaxing places like the beach. One fine day, he decided to take us to Lake Tahoe in Boston. It was perfect timing since now was the season for lake-related activities like kayaking and boating. We did everything! Along with assistance for these activities, they also have a restaurant on the lakeside and shops where we can buy souvenirs from.
Each one of us in the group is a lover of hills and trekking. On our first day in the US, we went to Kauai, Jackson Hole, and Steam Boat Springs. We had not one but many discoveries after we completed our short treks to these places. We saw views of lush areas like parks and rivers from heights. On our way to the hilltop, we saw a variety of trees that none of us have ever come across. At the hilltop, most of the trees are of a certain short height so that the visitors can enjoy the views. We made beautiful memories of a lifetime.
These were my top 3 places in the US. Whether you are going on a solo trip or with your loved ones, these are a must-visit. After visiting these places, I almost felt jealous of the residents of the US! The beauty of this country amazed me and I feel like if I visit another time, it will amaze me once again!
We all know it is important to do our research on every aspect of our trip before we go ahead with bookings and payments. This is the same for any city we plan to travel to. However, I want to emphasize one particular aspect when it comes to planning a vacation in the US. Here is what I am talking about –
The Power of Customer Reviews and Ratings
Even though this is important for all your trips, it is extremely important when visiting the States. This is because most of us are often so excited that our dream of holidaying in the US is finally coming true, that we fail to pay attention to the technical parts.
No matter how far you are travelling, always read customer reviews and feedback about all places. Whether it is the hotel you are planning to book or the locality where the hotel is located, read about everything. Also, research the best restaurants around your stay. Customer reviews will not only tell you about the quality of the food but also it’s pricing.
Trust me, being well researched about the country you are planning to travel to can never backfire. It will save you from blunders like getting a huge bill at a restaurant or going to a restaurant that shows on Google but has shut down long ago!
That is all from my side. I wish you all the luck with your US trip planning now or in the future!
