This is practically heaven sent for those wanting to launch a road trip in all of the 50 American states. The site gives information on all types of accommodations – hotels, motels and even cheap inns, tourist spots and even those weird “un-touristy” destinations. Aside from that, it also offers the option to save your destination a map that you could print out so you won’t get lost when there is no data service available for your Google maps.
The Festival Calendar (thefestivalcalendar.co.uk)

Tours and destination bookings could be difficult for a first timer. But with the help of Viator, this would be a piece of cake.

So be sure to use this only if you have not time coming up with an itinerary of your own or if you have tons of cash to spare.
