What’s the weather like in USA?

The US is a large country and the climate varies by region and time of year. It experiences four seasons, but some areas of the country see a more drastic change between seasons than others. The Pacific Northwest has cool summers and mild winters, while just to the south, the West Coast is sunny and pleasant all year long. The Midwest sees a bigger change between seasons, with strong summers and winters and frequent tornadoes and thunderstorms. The East Coast fluctuates and many people head down to Florida to get the warmest winters on that side of the country. Traveling in the off-season can save you a lot of money.

When is the best time to fly to USA?

Peak Season:

Depending on where you want to fly to in the USA will depend on the peak seasons. Due to the many, many states it can be hard to pinpoint exact months of the year to visit. Atlanta and Miami for example see the peak season from March to May and September to November. Las Vegas on the other hand is busy almost all year. You’ll find cheap flights to the USA if you go to Vegas during the Summer as temperatures in Las Vegas can get ridiculously hot. Once you’ve decided on a location in the USA you can start researching the peak seasons for that state or city and then secure cheap flights to the USA.

Off Season:

Again this varies a lot depending on where you are going, Los Angeles is cheapest around January due to it being the rainy season so you’ll find the cheapest flights to the USA then, Miami experience its off season from June to August as temperatures get very hot so cheap flight tickets are more readily available if you plan in advance and book them early.

 When is the best time to book a flight to USA?

The best time to book your flights to the USA will vary drastically depending on where you are planning to visit. Once you’ve decided on a few locations it’s worth researching any festivals or events that might be taking place and then securing your flight tickets early. Make sure to book them in advance to find the cheapest flights to the USA and try to avoid the peak seasons if you want to save money. If you are flexible or have no preference in where you want to go then you will find cheap flights to the USA with little trouble.

How long is the flight to USA?

Depending on your departure point and destination, flights to the USA will vary in duration. If you’re flying from London Heathrow to Chicago-O’Hare, expect your flight to last around eight hours. Flights from Rome, Italy to New York are around 9.5 hours, and flights to Los Angeles from Sydney, Australia, are 14 hours in length nonstop. If your final destination is Miami and your departure point is Tokyo, Japan, plan on your flight taking anywhere between 17 and 24 hours with a stop or two along the way.

Which airlines fly to USA?

A wide variety of airlines fly daily international routes to the USA depending on your departure point and final destination. Major airlines include American Airlines, United, Delta and Virgin Atantic Airlines, while others include Aeroflot, KLM, Air France and Turkish Airlines. Often, one or more airlines may combine service. Search Cheapflights for affordable fares that meet your needs.

 What should you pack for a flight to USA?

 The sheer size of the United States means that temperatures are going to vary widely throughout the four seasons, and you’ll want to keep your destination and the time of year in mind as you pack for your trip. If you’re visiting the Midwest or Northeast during the winter, make sure you bring along warm outwear, including gloves, scarves and hats, because temperatures can easily drop below zero. Temperatures in the south are more moderate at this time of year, and you should be able to get away with packing a lighter jacket to layer with a sweater. Those traveling to Denver or other Rocky Mountain states should consider a mix of clothing as 70 degree temperatures on one day can easily turn into a blizzard overnight.

Late spring and summer can bring warm temperatures across the country, with the South being rather humid and the western states offering dry heat. Pack with light easy-to-wear ensembles in mind, keeping your choices based on cotton. You also won’t want to forget the sunscreen as it doesn’t take long at the beach for skin to turn pink.

Tips for Your Stay in USA

 

  • Shop New York, a mecca for bargain hunters. To make the most of your time there, book a tour of one of the shopping districts. Shop Gotham runs two-hour walking tours which have been described as like having a knowledgeable (and shopaholic) friend to tell you the latest retail gossip and coolest places to shop.
  • The San Francisco Conservatory of Music presents hundreds of recitals and concerts by students, faculty and guest artists each year. Most of the performances are free.
  • Las Vegas – eat well and save money by starting the day with an all-you-can-eat buffet. The Spice Market Buffet at the Aladdin Resort & Casino, a “killer whale in a sea of buffets”.
  • Whatever you do, don’t forget to tip. Between 15 and 20% is acceptable.
  • There’s no need to feel lost in Los Angeles. Purple People Greeters answer questions, provide directions, make referrals or even call the police if things go awry. They’re easy to spot. The Greeters travel in pairs, wear purple tee shirts with “District Safety” or “Downtown Guide”, and can be visited at their Service Center at 801 S Hill St. Before you go, make sure you have a place to stay: there are plenty of Los Angeles hotels fit for any budget.
  • Feed your inner vulture some culture. The San Francisco Conservatory of Music presents hundreds of recitals and concerts by students, faculty and guest artists each year. Most of the performances are free.
  • Orlando– there’s not a giant mouse in sight in Harry P. Leu Gardens, 50 acres of lush vegetation in the middle of the city. There is also a restored farmhouse which harks back to a time when space travel was barely imaginable and citrus, not themeparks, was king. The gardens are open every day, from 9am to 5pm and are very reasonably priced. Not sure where to stay? Check out Orlando hotels near your favorite Orlando attraction.
  • Las Vegas– Eat well and save money by starting the day with an all-you-can-eat buffet. The Spice Market Buffet at the Aladdin Resort & Casino aladdincasino.com, a “killer whale in a sea of buffets”.
