Traveling by plane, train or bus is very common in countries such as the United States, Great Britain and Australia.
The U.S. travel information bureau, The Department of State, provides a variety of travel related publications. These include but are not limited to, guides to U.S. destinations, travel brochures and books, passports, visas and immunizations, and many other publications that are specifically geared towards the traveler. There is also a wide range of information available on the Internet regarding the best times and places to visit, the best times for shopping, and much more. The tourism industry is a large part of the United States economy.

The Department of Tourism and Public Access includes a list of state parks, beaches, monuments, playgrounds, historical sites, parks and forests. The Department of Transportation and the Department of Public Access manage most of the roads and highways throughout the state. Most state parks have their own website where visitors can find more information on facilities, reservation or booking, etc. Of course, there is always the official state park website, but you will also find a wealth of information at public access websites, such as those maintained by the state parks and wildlife refuges.
There are also state parks and wildlife refuges that maintain online databases of information about each park or wildlife refuge. For those who are interested in enjoying outdoor recreation activities on their vacations, these online databases are a great source of information and tips about various locations and services. In addition to offering a wealth of information, these websites allow visitors to book reservations at picnic areas, explore recreational facilities and historical sites, view maps, navigate to different state parks or wildlife refuges, and find out what current events are planned at each park or wildlife refuge.
It is imperative that when visiting any international airport, you do not bring any liquids that may cause water damage, as well as prescription and non-prescription medications. Please check your liquids before walking through the airport’s security checkpoint. If you have questions about what you should bring, a quick phone call to the local tourism office is a good idea. Many international airports offer complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access in select areas of the terminal; if you are staying close to a hotel, there will usually be free Wi-Fi available.
Finally, consider that security at any international airport is one of the highest priorities. While most people take a bag with them and leave it inside the vehicle, it is still important to store valuable documents in a safe location, such as a hotel safe. Consider that some hotels have a guest relations desk where you can ask for assistance. If you have a question about security at the airport, a tourism representative may be able to assist you with what you need.
