Keep going south to New Orleans, that's a whole other experience right there.


You want him to go to New Orleans in the summer? I thought we liked this guy?

Hell, I have to go in two weeks for business and I am dreading it....

Left back in 80 before they started the micro brew thing .. is it limited to 3.2 like the coloured water they call beer there ? over here on average it 15% on alcohol content for beer ..


You can pretty much get anything. They run the gamut from lighter style pilsners all the way up to beers with ABVs in the 20s and 30s. Those will beat you up and take your lunch money.

Most people you encounter will be extremely friendly--even more so because you're British as most of us find the accent charming. I just finished a 2000 mile, 2 week trip through the eastern half of the US and, other than the occasional rude driver, never encountered anything but kind, hospitable people.

That still sounds like a good trip. You'll be going through the oldest parts of America over there.

Hey, if you want to experience America, you have to experience it.


Mardi Gras would be the best time though, you're right. I still think he'll be pleasantly surprised at the scenery in the route he's planning to take. It's beautiful over there.

I spent summers in Brevard North Carolina as a kid, a lot to see in that area. It's about an hour south of Asheville, which is also a great town to visit.

Check out Pisgah Natl forest

There are some good American beers on this list . I prefer the Dogfish since it is relatively local.

First off:

Ignorance is not pretty. Those claims made about the US are based on misperceptions, media hype and spin.

I am 60 years old and have lived in the south for the last 50 years. I have never been shot at. I have never been mugged, burglarized or held up. Nor has any member of my family, nor have any of my friends. It does happen, but the odds are very low unless you go places that...shall we say... you shouldn't. If you find yourself in a run down area that obviously looks seedy and poverty stricken, do not get out of your car, but leave the area asap.

Common sense and awareness of your surroundings is all you need to stay safe in the US.

I do not care for Atlanta, myself. If you are going to spend some time there, then take in a ball game. Get the Yelp app and look for nice places to eat. Then head to the Carolinas. Much more hospitable. Visit Charlotte...very beautiful city with some history (not nearly as much as the UK, but hey...this is the New World lol).

By all means, try out the bbq...pick a bbq place using Yelp and you practically cant go wrong


Spend most of your time touring DC...IMO. The Smithsonian is fantastic and the monuments are pretty awesome too!

But whatever you do, do not listen to these fools who do not know the US. You will have a good time, just exercise some common sense.

Yes! Just try not to aim at Bracken, he has a multi-decade streak going.

Yes indeed, and if you ever get out Las Vegas way there are places you can even rent machine guns to shoot.
