Planning a trip to USA was really tough but untravel did a great job with it. A mix of usual and offbeat places and activities made the trip so much more fun. The hotels were great so was the coordination in transport. I called untravel up a couple of times at very late hours and they always obliged. Loved their dedication. Here's to many more trips in the future with untravel.
Things to do
Niagara Falls - Head out to the cascading waters of the Niagara Falls and the fascinating Cave of the Winds. From here, you will be guided through wooden walkways to the Hurricane Deck to watch gallons of water gushing a mere 20 feet away; expect to get drenched in the spray that falls over.
Orlando - From fascinating jazz to chocolate museums, there's a lot to Orlando beyond Disney. A kaleidoscope of fun, Orlando has everything from charming outdoor cafes to boat rides along its lakes. Explore CityWalk if you have the energy or just head out for some nighttime entertainment before your day out with Disney tomorrow.
Nassau - A popular cruise-ship stop, Nassau is blessed with vast hilly landscape and everything you expect the Caribbean to be. Enjoy its beaches and offshore coral reefs, classic pastel-colored colonial buildings and more. Make your way Downtown, to Bay Street's shopping hub. The national parks here are home to rare and exotic palms, ponds that protect juvenile marine life, freshwater wetlands, waterfowl and wading birds.

My trip to Canada was really mind blowing and all thanks to Canada. I must thank them for including a rail-trip in Canada and trust me, that was the best thing I had done in all my travels. It was stunning. untravel really took care of me and everything was so well organised. Hoping for many trips with them in the future. Cheers!
un[travelled] to USA
At the very beginning, I must say what a great experience it was to travel to USA with untravel. The communication was hassle-free and the consultants never seem to be annoyed by my questions. Travelling with 3 different generations is always a task but untravel suggested some cool activities and we had a lot of fun. We covered both the East Coast and the West Coast and everything was as promised.
Best time to visit June to August
Climate in the United States can vary from coast to coast. There are four main seasons here: summer (June - August), fall (September - November), winter (December - February)
Winter temperatures can vary according to the regions with snow in some areas and good skiing and winter sports opportunities. The colder months do also bring some incredible surf to California on the west coast. Go Christmas shopping in New York or Boston, where you can go ice skating and watch holiday parades.
Summer is the peak season here with lots of outdoor activities and entertainment in the offing. Warmer waters mean beaches could get over crowded, with hotspots like Disneyland and Niagara filling up quickly. June to August is the best time to visit Niagara Falls as well.
Spring is technically a 'quieter' period, with school in session, and the weather is just about perfect.
The North American Monsoon (NAM) is from early July into September, originating over Mexico and spreading into the southwest United States by mid-July.
The US turns festive in November with Thanksgiving and Halloween leading up to Christmas. The most outlandish Halloween parades are held at Greenwich Village in New York City and in San Francisco, California.
New Years Eve is a time for big parties and celebrations in the US with almost everyone wanting to be in Times Square.
How to reach
Though flying can be expensive, it is the best way to travel between destinations. All cities are well connected and flights operate regularly. Chances of flight delays and flight cancellation are minimal with the only issues usally being the weather playing foul. There are a bunch of airlines servicing the domestic market so you can usually bank on picking up a cheap airfare from one of them.
Amtrak connects most towns and cities by rail and is a great way to get around. It has several long-distance lines traversing throughout the country. There are also scenic options on vintage trains that are great for getting off the beaten track.
Roadtrips in cars can be fun considering good roads and flexibility in reaching your preferred destinations. You can hire a car but just remember to drive on the right side of the road with a valid international license. Bikes can be hired for longer road trips as well.
Taxis serve best for getting across cities, but some of the larger cities do have a good metro rail service too.
Greyhound Bus Lines offer convenient routes throughout the country and affordable fares make it the most economic as well.
