Whether heading to New York, Washington, California or Chicago there are some general DON’Ts of visiting the USA. This video goes over the major things you should not do in the US. From touching the Americans, to not discussing certain topics, to how not to miss out on the food & culture the US has on offer.

  1. Hi,
    We were in New York in 2016, and we were refused entry into a bar bcoz we didn't have ID with us. Do YOU carry your passport in your pocket every day? We were refused entry even though we were 43 at the time. And 100% sober.

  2. It's a good video. However, I am 66 years old and have done some overseas travel. I have never heard anyone talking about 52 states. I thought you were going to include Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands or Samoa or Guam but then you went into Alaska and Hawaii. New one on me. I have been insulted by Europeans who lump all Americans into one stereotype and it is not only irritating and stupid but hypocritical. Once someone starts out with "OH, you Americans blah blah blah blah you know you are dealing with an American hater. It is always a young Brit or a German. In most countries they are pretty nice unless you don't try to speak French to a Francophone.

  3. Food is cheap in the US lol, funny joke. Tipping is just a retarded system to not have to pay staff. Most places where the food is "cheap" the food is also shit and you are better off going to a fast food place.

  4. I'm a bartender and just wanted to add to the bring your ID thing. Your foreign driver's license doesn't count! Bring your passport to the bar, it's the only thing I'm allowed to accept that isn't a US ID.

  5. Don't expect to see any culture. The US is full of strip mall, big box stores and fast food. Even formally cultural places like NYC have lose their old world charm.

  6. This was a good list– I especially appreciated the one about not talking politics or gun control. A lot of foreigners I meet want to tell me how to vote, and I get that our foreign policy affects them in some ways, but I don't even like talking politics to fellow Americans let alone foreigners. I don't want to talk about our president (even if I don't like him), I don't want to talk about how our country handled this or that conflict etc. Having said that, if I knew the person well and I was warned in some way that he or she wanted to talk politics, I might be willing to engage, but I would leave as soon as I felt like I was being attacked. I also liked the bit about the driving– one thing you should mention is that our rest stops and gas stations are a far cry from what you will find in Europe– ours are dirty and scary and sometimes not even in working condition. One of the things we thought was adorable in France when we decided to take a road trip through the country was how frequent the rest stops are and how clean and wonderful they were– complete with shopping! If you're taking a road trip in the US– expect long stretches of just freeway, and if you want a nice rest area, go into a city a little deeper.

  7. Cops in the US are very different from other countries. As in not friendly. As in seeing you as an antagonist. The 'serve' in 'serve and protect' is not really meant and it's 'protect from you', not 'protect you' unless you get really lucky.
