Never change currency whilst in the US, poor rates of exchange. On arrival take out $50 worth of Euros from an ATM at the airport, use a good credit card for purchases, and ask to be charged in Euros, many shops and other businesses can now offer payment in $ but at their own poor rate of exchange. For cash, use an ATM with a debit card and remember to advise your bank of your plans in advance so the cards are not stopped for suspected fraud
