Hi, I've got some credit with Jetblue and Southwest that will expire in Feb '12, therefore I can take 2 domestic flights in the US, so we can hop from East to West etc... So I was thinking of maybe taking a trip to America, after Christmas this year, for 2 weeks sometime between [Dec 27th to Jan 16th]. It would be Mum, Dad and DD20, up for renting a car if needed.
I was just wondering if you guys could give me some ideas of places to visit in these winter months? I don't want miserable weather throughout the trip, i.e. no NYC, but am up for the cold, if we were skiing etc..., otherwise I'll like warm, at least 50f of higher temps. We'd be on a budget around $150 a night for hotels.
We have on previous visits, visited California, and parts of the Southwest [such as Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon], NYC, Orlando, and will this summer be visiting Boston, Chicago, and back to previous locations we've been to.
What do you think? Where are the nicest places to visit in these winter months?
