Hi guys !
First of all, congrats on the great site and Forum !
I'm flying over from Portugal for a one way trip from NY to Miami, starting on july 19th until august 5th. Although we've never been to the US, we already have some ideas about the trip and where to stop. Philadelphia, Washington/Baltimore, Charleston, Savannah, Orlando and of course Miami (maybe the keys as well).
My main doubts are:
- Coming from Baltimore to Virginia Beach would you advise the coast route through Salisbury or via Richmond ?
- Where to stop in North and South Carolina ? Fayetteville ? Raleigh ? Jacksonville ? Columbia ?
- And the main question : What are the real chances of getting the trip spoiled by nasty weather ? When I started planning the trip, the info we had was hurricanes and tropical storms normally hit the south in August/September but looking at the weather on the web, it seems daily thunderstorms is the least we can expect.... ? I think I need some local advise on this. Should I expect a 30 min shower every 2 or 3 days or is it more like a non-stop stormy weather with chances of a hurricane ?
- Any other important tips us ??
PS: Sorry about the weather ignorance, but these are unknown phenomena for a citizen of calm and sunny Portugal !! :)
