Other times we have to understand that certain questions are simply out of bounds and considered rude or nosy in certain cultures and areas.


So who exactly is this group? I suspect you are speaking of an individual who has an issue...not a group that has an issue.

In my travels I have encountered areas in the US that consider such questions about politics, clothing, religion as being rude and intrusive. These cultural perceptions are not just the preferences of an individual.

Theres a lot of things you can ask locals about to learn more about the culture. I just never thought asking about what they wear was one of them. Sometimes it comes out in conversation, sure, but there's a lot more interesting things about the local culture than clothing.

Well FULLTIMEWANNABE, most of the towns and cities in the USA don’t depend on yours or any tourists’ dollars to function and thrive. They have their own economies. I like visiting these places. Anywhere we travel we remember that we are the guests in their communities and towns. So we behave as though we were in someone else’s home - which we all are when visiting another place. It’s about courtesy and etiquette in respect to the places hosting us as guests.

Back to the topic please, it is a simple and worthwhile question: "Are there any guidelines you would like to share about how to behave as a tourist or visitor?"

For example, Don't be loud and obnoxious. [emoticon]

Some of the best advice this thread could reveal is 'don't dictate to others your own feelings'.
