About United States

The United States has exported so much of its culture abroad that the country can already seem familiar, even if you’ve never been before. The truth is that you don’t really know America because there is so much diversity in the geography, the people and the culture that you’re sure to find something to surprise you. Head to the Big Apple to discover gritty city life, or drive along the coast of California and watch the waves roll in from the Pacific. Each American city, from Philadelphia to Atlanta, Austin to Portland, has its own cuisine and ambiance. In the Deep South, you’ll see that life moves at a slower pace, set against a backdrop of Antebellum-era houses flickering in a heat haze, accompanied by country music and the smell of meat cooking on a charcoal grill. And if you want mountains, the States will spoil you for choice, from the snow capped Rockies to the volcanoes of Hawaii.

Accessible travel United States

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed into law in 1990, making it illegal for people with disabilities to be discriminated against in the United States. This means, in effect, that all public spaces must have reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities, such as elevators, step-free access and accessible bathrooms. Whilst you may find that some of these accommodations are not very well designed, generally the United States is an accessible destination and is becoming more accessible each year. Hotels have accessible rooms and most tourist attractions, even those in historic buildings, are wheelchair-accessible. Public transport systems vary across the States but many have some level of accommodation for people with disabilities. With a little planning and forethought, a trip to the United States as a person with a disability is an achievable and enjoyable experience.

Country Information

Health

Medical treatment in the United States is generally expensive and non-residents may be asked to pay a deposit upon admittance to a treatment facility. If this is the case, be sure to contact your insurance provider before paying to check standard procedures. Be sure to get appropriate health insurance to fit your personal and travel needs and have funds available to cover any medical emergency.

Cases of the Zika virus have been reported in Florida, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and parts of Texas. If traveling to these areas, take precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitos.

Security

Muggings and petty theft can occur in the United States, particularly in larger cities, so if possible, you should avoid walking alone at night. It is recommended to be cautious and avoid flashing valuables. If traveling in a rental car, hide valuables and do not leave bags, suitcases or passports in the car overnight, even in the trunk.

Documentation

Entry requirements to the United States depend on your nationality. Check the specific entry requirements depending on nationality here.
