Most visitors to the United States are required to file for a visa. You can find information on the State department site.

As for 4 nights? We often run into visitors from UK who are here for 3-4 nights. It's quick but you'll have fun.

You need an ESTA, which is a waiver of the visa requirement (assuming you qualify.)

I wouldn't travel that far for such a short trip, but many others would.
