Tips to Remember

What are the things that you can do so that you can make the most out of your trip? These are some tips that you should remember:

•      Do the things that you can do but do not plan too much. There are some people who would like to visit so many different states in the United States but they can only stay for four days. This will not be ideal for you to see California and New York in the same trip especially since they are far from each other. You can choose the state that you want to visit first and make the most out of your trip there. At least, the next time that you visit, you can check out another state instead.

•      Tipping is known to be common almost everywhere in the United States. It is considered to be rude if you do not leave any tips. It is best that you get to know the amount that you are expected to tip depending on the food or the service that you have received. You can also take a look at your bill and see if the amount that you have paid for already has “service charge.” Still, this should not stop you from leaving tips.

•      There are some areas in the United States wherein you are not supposed to smoke. If you are a smoker, it is best that you get to know the designated areas wherein you can smoke. The rules may vary from one state to another though. It can be confusing to keep track of everything but if you are determined to not break the rules, you will be able to do it. There are some states that are stricter than others when it comes to smoking. You can also ask the hotel or the B&B where you are going to stay if they have a smoking area so you can safely get your smoking fix.

•      Always be on time. If there is one thing that the Americans seem to hate, it is the fact that some people are late. They live a very fast-paced life and they are always on-the-go. There may be some areas wherein you can be a bit laid back but make sure that you will never be late for your appointments and meetings. If you are having a business meeting with some Americans, it is best that you will be there a few minutes before the intended time.

•      Be more natural about the way you speak. You may have seen in movies that it seems cool to use the American slang. This is okay to a certain extent but if you would use it in a joking manner, the Americans may not appreciate it. It is best to stick with basic English if you want to communicate with the Americans properly.

•       Become familiar with the traffic laws and regulations. The more that you know, the better that you can navigate around the different states in America. You should also be familiar with the local laws even if you are not going to use your vehicle. Look for the pedestrian lanes before crossing the street and make sure that the vehicles are in full stop before you cross. If you do not follow the rules and you get into an accident because of this, it will be your fault. There are some foreigners who may become confused in the beginning because they drive on the left side of the road. It may take some getting used to but you may get the hang of it after a few days or so.

•      Just enjoy. This is the most important rule that you have to remember. You need to make sure that you will have fun while you are traveling. You are going to be in new places, you are going to take a lot of pictures, and strangers may become your friends. Be kind and always do unto others what you want others to do unto you.

In a lot of cases, the tips that are mentioned above will be enough to help you enjoy your trip to the United States of America. You can always research and plan ahead. You will be able to make use of your time more that way.
