Guide to North American culture
When you are planning to visit North America on a short or an extended holiday, it helps if you brief yourself with some good research about the culture and lifestyle of the continent. Traveling is more about experiencing a new culture than visiting a new place and that being said, a true travel experience comes from experiencing the native American culture and history, and understanding the history of the place you are visiting. Particularly if you are from a different continent or are visiting North America for the first time, here is some information about the culture of North America that you definitely should know.
North American history
The rich history of North America begins around 1000 A.D. when Europeans made their first attempt to colonize Newfound circa. Later, when England ruled over the Atlantic coast, it brought the United States of America into existence. Post centuries of the arrival of Europeans, fascinated by their riches, Americans pushed their culture towards the west across the continent.
If you are not well aware of the American culture and values, you may find yourself wondering what sort of people they are. So here are some very essential facts about North America and its people that you should know before you arrive in the continent.
North American culture
One of the first things that will give you an understanding of the Americans’ think big proposition is when you see enormous trucks and SUVs on the roads. Americans like their large space and believe space to be synonymous with practicality. Another everyday life aspect that you can associate with the American culture and lifestyle of thinking big is the food size. Most American restaurants serve rather large portions so if you aren’t sure, you should definitely check on the portion size with your server!
With regards the food, there is another very clear aspect of American culture that is evident. Americans are always on the go so the food that they regularly eat is the ‘food on the go’. You will often spot Americans with their coffee mugs, beverages or packaged food in the on-the-go packaging walking down the streets or in public transport. You may even notice people grabbing a bite or a drink while queueing up for the bank. Drive-ins and Drive through takeaway counters are very common in the fast food joints here.
Sports- an integral part of the American culture
Sports is another important aspect that has its deep roots in American history and culture. The most popular of sports in North America is the baseball and the basketball. While there are other sports such as soccer or cricket, they aren’t as big as the basketball or baseball. Sports is a huge uniting factor in the culture of America which was rather evident when over 100 million American watched the Super Bowl 2017 with huge enthusiasm.
Another aspect of American culture values is the spirit of competition. Among the things to know about American culture, this is an aspect that you will notice in young Americans too. Americans thrive on competition and children from a very young age are encouraged to be competitive. Competition is deep rooted in American work culture and values too. Americans don’t sit back and wait; they tend to take things into their hands and make things happen – that’s the gist of American cultural values and beliefs.
Across the North American continent, there are efforts made to preserve the American art, history and culture. Visiting some of these places will help you experience the native American culture and history. The National Museum of the American Indian, the Cherokee Heritage Center in Oklahoma or the annual Gathering of Nations event in Albuquerque, New Mexico are some of the experiences that you definitely should plan to include in your American holiday if you are keen on understanding North American cultural facts and want to live White American cultural values.

Trip to North EastOur tour was exactly as we wanted it. Kaziranga tours customized the package for us so we could spend a few extra nights in places that we wanted to. The hotels were as we had asked and were very appropriate for westerners like us traveling in India. Our driver and guide was also very good. He was always on time, explained the plans to us carefully and made sure we understood. How he navigates the roads of Assam and Meghalaya so well without a GPS is amazing. Even when we through him curve balls and wanted to see some other sites, he knew exactly how to navigate us there flawlessly. I highly recommend.
Trip to North EastIt has been a memorable trip with friends.. Thanks to Aman's help with perfect planning and smooth execution. The driver really knew the place and guided us well throughout the journey. Our stay was at picturesque locations and everything went smooth.... All in all, an absolute value for money.
Trip to North EastGuide and driver excellent. Two hotels of poor quality. Crossing the Se La pass, visiting Tawang monastery, Kaziranga elephant ride, Dawki boating and limestone caves of Cherrapunji
Trip to North EastReify is the best choice if you are planning for a trip to North East. This year, we had zeroed on North East for our annual family vacation. Since ours is a short vacation of 6 days and 5 nights, we were confused about the states to visit! We went ahead and posted the request in Travel Triangle hoping to finalize a destination during the process. Ms.Nikita from Reify contacted us, understood our predicament and helped us chose Assam and Meghalaya for our vacation. She suggested not to go for hilly himalayan ranges since we had small kids in the group. She is very sharp, attentive and accommodative to our requests. Her itinerary helped us make most of our vacation covering all the places in our checklist. Thanks to Nikita, we had a pleasant memorable trip.
Trip to North Eastit was overall good trip planned by Nandini & pulkesh best part of my trip is driver...he is most genuine person & informing us every possible details about the place
Trip to North EastMe and my wife went on a 10 days trip to North-East from Reify. Our trip was organized by Nikita Chauhan from Reify. From when we connected for the first time, she was helpful and supportive. She helped us to customize our package to make it what we exactly needed. Many calls and discussion happened and she took care of everything. All the arrangements were up to the mark, Hotels were superb. I wish I could give 10 stars to her. We would like to plan future trips with Reify and under guidance of Nikita.
Trip to North EastNice trip, would have been better if travel agent Krishna is interactive. I requested her multiple times to plan our last day also, but she didn't give any reply. Would have been better, but overall it's nice.
Trip to North EastVery good services provided by the travel agent and Cab Driver. Thank you so much. I have planned for a next trip deal with you in this month. North East trip is most likely and beautiful trip in my life
Trip to North EastWe had an amazing experience travelling to the wonderful north east of India with the help of Travel triangle and Ride n climb. The itinerary prepared by our planner from Ride and climb,Ms. Nargis was excellent and she was forever willing to help with anything regarding the tour at any point of time. The travel guide cum driver Mr Pinku Das who was well aware of the locality was very helpful and kind enough to explain everything. The hotels provided for accommodation were also very comfortable. On the whole we had a memorable trip and a fantastic experience. Thank you Travel Triangle and Ride n Climb and special shout out to nargis and pinku bro.
Trip to North EastWe made a booking with toursonclick via travel triangle for Kaziranga (1N) and Shillong(2N). The agent was very responsive and took care of all the requirements. The prices were reasonable, but what impressed me the most was the attention to detail - they had taken care of all details like elephant safari/jeep safari and quoted all incl price. The hotel at Shillong (EeeCee) can be rated 4star while the Jonaki Kareng could be little better! Both were very comfortable and the driver Rajib was very flexible to accomodate our needs. The Kaziranga experience was truly memorable! Dont miss the jungle safari - by elephant and jeep if you are going to Kaziranga!
