Hey Road Trippers
My girlfriend and I are planning for, a hopefully, great road trip in the states. As i turn 25 early november, this is the earliest date to take off (to reduce rental cost substantial). To give you the rough idea of our plan it pretty much looks like this.
- Rental car for roughly 3 months (preferably the same as several one-way rentals seems way to expensive)
Route: Chicago -> Niagara Falls -> NY -> D.C. -> Miami -> New Orleans -> Grand Canyon -> Las Vegas -> San Francisco -> Los Angeles
Naturally the route isn't complete, as we are planning lots of stop between the major cities, but it gives you the rough idea.
Our main concern is whether we should crank up the trip early november or wait until spring, say march. Would we miss out on anything due to colder weather during Nov-Dec-Jan??
Second: what can we really expect of the weather during that time, in the different parts of the country?? The statistics we've seen so far probably only tells half the story like temperature.
As far as driving in cold conditions, we have sufficient respect/practice due to our own climate.
Since we are from Europe, we don't feel we know enough about the different weather "over there" to make our decision yet, and therefore we seek help from you, the pros :)
In advance thank you for your help. :)
