    Eiruli - ESAs are covered by the American Carrier Act and the Federal Housing Act. What this means is that US-based airlines must accept ESAs in the cabin of the aircraft. It is optional for other airlines. Also, housing accommodations in the United States that normally may not allow pets must do so with proper documentation. As for other attractions, restaurants, stores, etc., those are covered by health and safety regulations that may or may not include animals. These regulations apply to businesses, not individuals, so they would apply to you too.
