I am planning a trip to Brooklyn on December 1, 2015 returning to Sacramento on January 3, 2016. I am traveling with a dog, and would like to avoid bad weather if possible. I am not in any hurry but would like to do in under a week. I will be staying in hotels or B&B's along the way,need pet friendly accomidations. Suggestions for route etc? Traveling in Audi Q5.
