The continental United States is larger than Europe, so the most important advice I can give foreign travelers to the United States is: don’t try to see and do too much. Many foreign visitors to the United States try to see New York, Washington, DC, Miami, and Los Angeles all in one trip. That kind of touring can leave a traveler very tired if you have limited vacation days, and it can contribute to sensory overload. I would recommend visiting www.esta-registration.co.uk and getting the best advice from them.
The best way to see the United Stats is to focus on a region and travel more deeply. Many first-time travelers opt to do an itinerary of East Coast destinations like New York City and Washington, DC, while others may want to focus on a few West Coast destinations, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. Other regions for consideration include the Southeast, the Southwest, the Northwest, and the Midwest.
Tipping is customary in the United States and tips make up a large percentage of some service employees’ salaries, particularly servers at restaurants whose average wage can range from $2.13 per hour to $7.25 per hour depending on state guidelines. It’s rude to walk out of a restaurant without tipping here so make sure you tip. You can tip anywhere between 10 percent to 20 percent but use this handy guide to tipping to figure out where and when to tip on your travels. If you ever want to travel internationally, then make sure you get your Visa first. If you need to get yours fast, then just go to www.evisa-turkey.biz.tr to apply for yours
Tipping is normally up to the discretion of the tipper, but some restaurants or resorts in the US will automatically include a gratuity fee (charged at 18 percent extra on your bill) once they hear your foreign accent. Now, don’t let this stop you from tipping everywhere. However, read your bill carefully and tell them if you see a suspicious gratuity fee there. They’ll usually take it off grudgingly.
Anti-smoking measures have been implemented in several countries, but certain city and states in the USA have some of the strictest measures against smoking in the world. In cities like New York City, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and others, smoking is banned in bars, clubs, restaurants, and most indoor spaces, like malls. As of October 2015, there are 28 states that have statewide indoor smoking bans and 60 cities excluding Nashville, Las Vegas, Miami and several others. Watch out for California who has extended its smoking bans to beaches, public parks, healthcare facilities and private residences.
