Before you go...
The United States is the fourth largest country in the world covering 3,617,827 square miles. The country closely borders Mexico (to the north) and Canada (to the south), two of the other countries that help make up the continent of North America.
Whether you're in the mood to sightsee the towering New York City skyline, try some world famous Texas BBQ, or snorkel in the turquoise water of the Hawaiian Pacific Ocean, the United States truly does offer something for everybody to enjoy!
The terrain ranges from mountains, to deserts, to plains, hills, valleys, and everything in between, and offers a unique experience no matter the season you visit.
When to visit
The United States in general has a pretty temperate climate with cold winters, and hot summers (this varies state to state). Because every region of the US is so different, the best time to visit varies depending on where you want to go, and what you want to do.

Overall, the U.S. is a generally safe destination for travel, however like any country, do your research ahead of time to figure out which areas to stay in, and which to stay away from. As with anything though, it is important to always be aware of your surroundings as theft and crime can happen.
The United States uses USD, and you can find an ATM machine almost anywhere. Almost everywhere accepts Visa or Mastercard debit or credit cards as well.
The US uses type A & B plugs. Standard voltage is 120V and standard frequency is 60Hz. As with most countries, a universal adapter (with surge protection) and a converter come in handy.
It is important to do some research before coming to the US because every state has different things to see, eat, and several places to stay, but you will definitely have a unique experience no matter what you do!
