Travel guide

The northeast of the United States, also called 'BosWash', is the largest and oldest region in the country. Visitors come to see its world-famous cities, like the federal capital of Washington D.C., home of the White House and the seat of the American presidents, and Boston, the cradle of American independence in 1776 but also a college town with 40 universities, including the famous Harvard and M.I.T. Then there's Philadelphia, which sets itself apart with its Soul music and 3,000 wall frescoes. It is also in this region that you will find Rhode Island, an urban jungle boxed in by the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.

Our Editorial team's advice

Since the terrorist attacks, security measures have been strengthened in the Washington D.C area, so get ready to be patient during baggage checks, which could last several hours.

Make sure that your electronic passport is fully up to date. You will also have to fill out an ESTA form (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) online before leaving for the United States, regardless of where you are flying to or through.

Finally, it is strongly recommended that you have very good travel health insurance, as health care in the United States is extremely expensive.
