Is there a way to exchange USD to Euro and not pay a fee? Where can I do this and what is the typical fee?

At the ATM, withdrawing EUR from a European ATM with your US ATM/debit/credit card. Best exchange rates, lowest fees.

Citibank allows you to withdraw money for free from your US account if you use Citibank ATMs in Europe.

Sometimes you can change the money at your bank before you go abroad with little to no fees. The bank website usually has a link to show what current exchange rate they are using is.

I use Bank of America, and while I am disappointed not to see Spain on the list, they do have fee-free ATMS in several countries:
