Good to know
Getting there & getting around: There is an international airport or a few in every state in the US, making it quite easy to get to the part of the country in which you’d like to stay. What’s different in the US though is that public transportation is not widely available outside of New York City and Chicago — many or most visitors to the States thus opt to rent a car, partly to fulfil the romantic American road trip dream and partly for sake of convenience. You will find car rental services at every airport and everywhere else. You can drive in the USA with a UK license.
