Turistické informace

Každý stát má svá vlastní informační střediska, která poskytují zdarma cestovní informace, mapy, brožury a velmi užitečné zlevňovací kupony na bydlení, atrakce, výlety a restaurace.
S filiálkami těchto center se setkáme při přejezdu hranic jednotlivých států – ta se nazývají Welcome Center - nebo ve městech – tzv. Visitor Center či Convention and Visitor Bureau (CVB).
