I am coming to New York for a wedding in late May 2011 from the UK. We are spending 5 nights in Brooklyn and then we are free to leave the city. We dont like cities all that much and much prefer to be in small towns and trying to get a feel for the real 'small town' America. We will be travelling with a 13 month old baby.
My question is, which direction do you advise we head?! We wont have a car but will need to pick one up somewhere, but this can be done after a boat/flight if needed. We would like to head towards warmth. We love to visit natural and historic attractions (not so keen on lots of people or queing for entry to things) - for example we visited the west coast/arizona/nevada last year, loved death valley, hated Vegas.
I'd love to know what you think about travelling with a young child. We wouldnt want to drive for very long each day (a couple of hours tops) - and at the moment I just feel lost! How can the US be so big!?
many thanks in advance
