my wife is about to embark upon a 2 year post graduate university course to enable her to qualify as an early years teacher. From now on, therefore the longest holiday available to her will be the long summer holiday which, as are Australians, is December/January. We are looking to fly into NYC, Chicago or LA. We will have 3 or 4 weeks at our disposal. Our two children are 6 and 4. I have in mind driving to the warmer parts of Florida/Texas/Arizona. If anyone has experience of successful family trips in the southern parts of the States in deep winter I would love to hear about them!
