    Default 1st 2 Weeks of December TX-NY

    Starting the plans for a road trip from San Antonio TX, to New York NY; with 'major' stops in Memphis TN and Harrisburg PA.

    Have 12 days and want to see (or maybe the correct word would be "feel") some actual "Christmas" weather.

    Would like to spend 2 nights in NY, and 2 Nights in the Harrisburg/Hershey area.

    Looking for any ideas about things to do/see along the way, or nice "Christmas-sy" things to do in Harrisburg/Hershey/Baltimore/Philadelphia/New York areas.

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    OK - looking for the Christmas 'feel' are we? I guess that means snow, and Currier and Ives type small towns. Well I can't guarantee snow, but here are some places along the way that will almost certainly be putting on their holiday finery. As you go through Knoxville, consider a small detour down through Gatlinburg to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and then, if it's still open, follow the Blue Ridge Parkway northeast along the Appalachians. As you progress up through Virginia, some towns worth looking into include Lexington and Winchester. But my favorite city in that general area for just walking through during the holidays will be nearby during your stop in the Harrisburg area. If you can at all find the time, get to Lititz (Tree Lighting and Songfest: Dec. 1; "The Glow of Christmas: Dec. 2-3). Finally, especially if the weather turns cold and snowy while you're in southeastern Pennsylvania, make a trip to Valley Forge and/or the Delaware River, and remember a couple of Christmases about 230 years ago.

    I don't know if you're like me and have spent all of your life in the South only seeing snow in a great once in a while. So here are some Winter Driving Tips for a safe journey.

    Other than that it sounds like a great trip. I'd love to see snow as well.
