The United States is a country located in North America bordering the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean. Neighboring countries are Canada and Mexico. The geography of the United States is varied with mountains in the west, a broad central plain, and low mountains in the east.
The United States of America is the world’s third largest country in size and nearly the third largest in terms of population. As the third-largest country in the world, it’s hard to find a more varied landscape than the United States of America. From the glaciers of Alaska to the deserts of Arizona, the sun-soaked beaches of California, Florida and Hawaii, to the majestic Rocky Mountains, travel in the USA is nothing short of spectacular.
The best time to visit is entirely dependent on what you want to do.
Summer is the brightest time in northern areas, and the main holiday season stretches from May to August.

Tipping: Tipping at restaurants in the United States. 15% is standard, but 18-25% of the total bill is a good rule of thumb.
