My girlfriend and I had hopes of taking a couple weeks after Christmas to make a nice roadtrip through the south, maybe to New Orleans. I was just laid-off unexpectedly and she can't afford to single-handedly pay for the trip.
So now we are looking for something a little bit closer to home. Something within 15- to 20-hour drive of Boston that we can spend a couple days at would be good. We were thinking Nova Scotia, but the high-speed cat ferry doesn't run in the winter months.
