My girlfriend and I are planning a road trip from San Fransico to Miami in December this year. We have around 26 days. High level plan is to first drive south on road 1, next Death Valley, Vegas, Grand Canyon, ..., Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Tampa. We have a few questions:
1. How is this route like in December? I believe weather can be quite different in the different states. Will all parks be open?
2. RV or car? From convenience and cost perspective. We always thought RV, but perhaps December is not the best month for a camper.
3. What are nice places along this route, aside from the ones i mentioned?
Hopefully you can help me out.
