I'm trying to activate my SIM card and becasue we are from the U.S. we do not have a UK billing address it declines our card and will not allow us to activate the SIM. Any help is greatly appreciated!

You can buy a voucher instead and use it to top up. Your options are many including corner shops and paypoints.

Any UK address is fine including your UK accomodation address.

 As @nigelbrooks has said any UK address; why not the one where the SIm was originally sent. I have the same situation living in Canada and just use a firend's address where it was delivered. As far a paying is concerned you can, I believe, use any accepted credit card.

This network really doesn't work well for visitors. Suggest you make something up rather use a local friend's details with consent of course,
