the great American cookout: the cheapest alternative can be a great one

The USA is not a cheap place to travel. Some forgo a trip here just because of the potential considerable cost. Fortunately, the very best this country has to offer is not insanely expensive. The country's true treasures are its National Parks. Nowhere in the world are there as many nor are they as well maintained. The best part is they are also among the cheapest in the world to visit. Eating in the parks can be pricey but there are always places to picnic or cook out even if you are not camping. The parks were made for families and to keep costs down, they provided these great spots which are not only cheap but also set in incredibly beautiful spots.

Favorite Dish: You can cook typical BBQ fare or just bring along some cheese and bread for a quick picnic. You choose what you like and eat when you like. Enjoy the food and the saving too. Maybe you can afford that USA trip after all!

looks like McD's but tastes much better - United States of America

looks like McD's but tastes much better

how about In & Out Burger or Dick': not all fast foods are created equal

While I'm not a regular eater of fast food, love it or hate it, it is one of the big exponents of American cuisine. While the hamburger and hot dog have their antecedents in Germany, they surely became cult items here and look no further than icon McDonald's to realize their worldwide popularity. What few people today realize is there was fast food before McDonald's and it was better too. Some of them are still around so seek them out if looking for an authentic American eating experience. Check out Dick's in Seattle or In & Out Burger in California. Check my individual pages for details in areas you might be traveling. Like I said, it's not my forte but I do eat in the great ones if they are on the map I am currently traveling on.

Favorite Dish: Burgers made from fresh meat, not frozen. Fresh cut fries from real potatoes. Milk shakes made with milk and ice cream, not a powder. Yum.

the many great brewpubs of the USA: looking for food? look for beer.

Few realize what a Mecca of great beer the United States is since many are only exposed to the mass-produced crap that are most popular but make no mistake about it, the US has some great beer. You just have to know where to look for it. A lot of my travel is specifically for beer and even when it's not, if there is a good brewery in the area of where I will be, I find it. Within my individual pages, you will find a wealth of information of beer, places to drink it, and the food that is served with it. Many people on VT has taunted me to write a book on beer. Well, I have. It's right here on VT. Enjoy the fruits of my labor. I sure enjoyed doing the research!

Favorite Dish: From cask-conditioned ales, to Germanic lagers, and Belgian styles as well, America has a beer to suit all palates. None other than the late great Michael Jackson (not the singer, ladies, the beer guru) said that nowhere in the world are there more styles of beer than in the US. In the brewpubs, beers are brewed on the premises which promises freshness and often they pair the beers with food accordingly. From down home pubs serving typical pub grub to haughty upscale affairs, the American brewpub scene is something you should not miss out on.

Comparison: about average

Price: less than US$10
