Moose, Wyoming, United States
Moose is a pretty little quaint town. Look for moose there. On one trip I saw 15 moose around Jackson Hole. DO NOT APPROACH MOOSE. Males are usually more aggressive than females. Stay at a safe distance: pretend it's a bear or a shark.

Seattle, Washington, United States
I had my wallet stolen in a Green Tortoise hostel in Downtown Seattle, the staff weren't exactly helpful, I couldn't call home from the desk because it didn't accept outgoing international calls and nobody would give me any change for the phone. Avoid this place at all costs, it was a dump, though I did meet a couple of nice Welsh guys to play cards with. It was close to the market though and that was first class, also it was (handily) close to a Western Union, so I was able to collect some cash and get a cup of coffee 30 minutes after crying down the phone to home! Also, the area was a bit threatening at night, lots of people hanging around on corners, not the best for solo female travellers.

Memphis, Tennessee, United States
Best Western Benchmark Hotel , 164 Union Ave Memphis. Great service, clean rooms, friendly staff. They knew I was a (female) traveler on my own, and they made sure I'd stay safe. No breakfast included but there's a good breakfast opportunity next door!

San Francisco, California, United States
If you drive a car into San Francisco, be prepared to either parallel park or pay a premium for a lot.

For parallel parking, you may have to do so on a very steep hill so prepare yourself! For lots, expect to pay about $5-10 for a couple hours, $25 and up for overnight in private lots, and around $50 per night even when you are a guest at a major hotel.

Bryce Canyon, Utah, United States
Make sure to bring your camera and lots of extra memory. Bryce Canyon is so amazing. You should go on hikes there, but bring LOTS of water. While you're there, you should also stop by Zion, a similar national park only a few hours away. There is this place there where water that sifted through the sandstone falls on you. It's really cool. At Bryce there are shuttle buses that bring you to select attractions.

Decatur, Georgia, United States
I'm a truck driver and I can definitely tell you to steer clear of the Pilot's rest rooms. They're usually pretty bad. The TA seems to have a lot more truck parking available at any given moment.

Bring kumquats. They take a while to spoil, leave barely any waste (eaten skin and all) and have immense amounts of vitamin C. (This tip is more so for the intrepid travelers of the road)

Chicago, Illinois, United States
You wanna visit Chicago downtown out of the summer season.., just carry with yourself an umbrella, pair of clothes, an impregnated jacket and a hat, as the weather right there might change all of the time into windy, rainy and real freeze into just couple of hours..
