My family has Russian currency, but I can't find anywhere that will exchange it here. I live in the United States and have looked everywhere. All the places we have checked say they do not want it.

Where should I go?

    The US is a very big place. You might want to be a teensy bit more specific. – LessPop_MoreFizz Feb 28 '15 at 2:52

The simple answer is, "probably back to Russia". I would be extremely surprised if you could find any currency exchange or bank in the USA that will accept Russian currency. The only exception could be in some heavily Russian-speaking areas, for example, Brighton Beach in New York, yet even that is questionable.

Your friend's best bet is to hold on to it until his/her next trip to Russia. I still have some Russian currency from my last trip to Russia about 3 years ago.
