A country of diversity, culture, and activity, the United States of America (USA) is a treasure trove of unique states - some already popular, others waiting to be discovered.
It is a massive country with lots to see, so it may require several trips to cover the bulk of it. With such a difference between states, you will feel like you are in a brand new country every time.
The size of the USA means that travel between states is relatively long. To get between states that are in different regions, plane travel is the best option. If flights are booked in advance, they can be quite affordable.
Road transport is quite a popular way to travel, and this can be done by car or bus. If you are looking to visit numerous states during one big road trip, it is well worth renting a car to get around with ease. The bus system is efficient and works well as a budget-friendly option.
Public transport differs in each city/state. Some of the bigger cities are well-equipped with train systems, but what is most common is bus systems.

The national language spoken in the USA is English.
Because the country is so big, different states have different time zones. As such the USA has six time zones: Alaska time, Central time, Eastern time, Hawaii-Aleutian time, Mountain time, and Pacific time.
The USA also observes daylight savings between the second Sunday in March and the first Sunday in November, where the clocks are set forward by one hour.
The USA is a big country, so the climate is vastly different from region to region.
The southern states, and states along the west coast, generally experience pleasant weather with warm temperatures throughout the year. The states up north, closer to Canada, do have much colder climates.
The central regions and northeastern states tend to experience fairly hot summers and cold winters, with a clear distinction between the seasons.
Alaska is a bit of an outlier, as it has extremely long, cold winters and very short, mild summers.

When you decide to visit the USA will depend on where you plan to visit, and what type of holiday you want.
The most popular time for tourists is during the summer season, as the weather is fairly pleasant throughout. If you want to beat the crowds, you can also plan a trip during autumn or spring, as it is less crowded while still maintaining comfortable temperatures.
If you want to travel to southern states or states on the west coast, you can still enjoy warm temperatures during the winter.
