My husband and I are planning to visit the US in March 2016 and are considering doing a road trip from Miami to Chicago leaving from Miami in early March. We have previously (a lifetime ago) done a road trip from New York to San Francisco via the south and thought it would be a good opportunity to see something different. We will be visiting family in Chicago and surrounding areas and plan to head on over to Niagara falls and into Canada by the end of March.
We are used to long distances (it's a 12 hr drive to visit our daughter which we do in one day) but would like to experience the country and its people so would prefer to avoid major highways if possible.
We live in rural Queensland so not too fussed on big cities.
I'm not sure what the weather would be like at that time of year. Will there likely be a lot of snow around and would this make driving a bit tricky? My husband is an experienced driver of all types of vehicles up to road trains but has not done much driving in snowy conditions before. Plus, we are used to driving on the left hand side of the road.
We will probably allow about a week for the road trip and would appreciate any suggestions.
