What to expect from the United States?

We think we understand the US culture and society and the truth is that once you step foot in the country, everything is still quite shocking! Traveling around a country that doubles the size of the European continent is a big deal. Most of the visitors coming to the USA have a very specific itinerary in mind since distances are pretty long and there is a lot to see.

From the Mid-West flatlands of Oklahoma and Kansas to the sharpest hills of Hawaii and from the most impressive and beautiful coastal roads of Maine to the paradise-like keys of Florida, the US has something for us all.

This massive land is full of kind, friendly, warm-hearted people – Southern hospitality is a thing! Big cities will transport you to a movie scene in which you are the main character. Food is just on a different level – the messier, the better! The US also holds top-notch museums that will trap you for hours and its nature is so vast that will make you fall in love with every single tree, lake, and mountain in the many National Parks!

Typical Costs When Traveling to the United States

Accommodation – The majority of tourists stay in hotels but renting tourist apartments is becoming more normal. Expect an average of 30 EUR / 34 USD a night for a standard hotel/stay.

Food – Here is the thing, tipping is mandatory in the US (usually a 20%). The average you can spend on a regular meal could be around 15 – 20 EUR / 17 – 23 USD and will also depend on where you are at.

Transportation – Some big cities got a subway system and the cost would be less than 3 EUR or less than 3 USD. Ubers are a good way to move around in cities with no subway system but expect an average of 8 EUR / 10 USD a ride. I would recommend having your own rental car for long trips in the country.

Suggested daily budget – 80-90 EUR / 90-100 USD (Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in a standard hotel, eating out most of the days, visiting new things every day, and driving a rental car. Using the budget tips below, you can always lower this number. However, if you stay in fancier accommodation or use taxis/ubers instead of your own rental car, expect this to be higher!)

Money Saving Tips

Eat in Diners and drive-ins Some of the most amazing American food you'll find it here! The best part is that these are quite affordable
Rent a car For longer stays is always better to have your own car, most of the hotels have free parking. To me this was a game changer!
Get your travel insurance Take no risks. The USA Health System is one of the most expensive in the world. You'll be thankful to have one in case any minor issue happens during the trip
Use Airbnb Most of the times Airbnb houses are very well located and offer better prices than hotels. I would recommend to check this option before deciding for a hotel.

What I’ve seen so far

I use to say that the USA for me is about 6 different trips to cover it all completely and I might be even falling short!

For now, my first and only trip to the USA was quite an unusual one. A good friend of mine got married in Missouri, so I planned a cool road trip around the Mid-West and Southern states of the US. In 21 days on the road, I visited 15 cities in 6 different states. These are Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. My favorite cities are Austin (TX), San Antonio (TX), and New Orleans (LA).

I can’t wait to explore more of this amazing and humongous country, but for now, you can read about my adventures in the posts below.
