Getting there: The US is serviced by numerous international airlines and due to its vastness it is best to fly into the airport hub closest to the region one is planning to explore.
Capital city: Washington D.C.
Population: 323.902 million.
Religion: Predominantly Christian.
Currency: United States dollar (USD).
Climate: The climate is broadly speaking temperate, but due to the large area of the nation, varies from region to region with huge differences in temperature from north to south. There are four distinct seasons and the northern states are always cooler than the southern, whatever the season.
Transport: The country's sheer size means cross country travel is quickest by air. The bus network is far reaching and efficient for travel regionally as buses are cheap and run to full timetables along all major highways. The inter-city rail system unlike the city metros and suburban commuter trains isn’t very extensive and at times can cost more than airfare. Cruise down the highways in the most convenient and flexible way to get around — the car — as at times the public transport stops short of the sights.
Best time to travel: June to August (summertime) has the best weather but is also the most expensive.
What to wear: There are no restrictions on clothing as such, but do dress for the weather.
