I know, I know… First she doesn’t post for ages and then she comes along and wants info that has nothing whatsoever to do with sewing. But maybe, just maybe you could indulge me?? Pretty please?
Thing is: We’ve been thinking about spending our summer holidays in the States. First off we thought of going to Florida, but then we had second thoughts because while we enjoy a beach holiday we would like to have more options than just that.
So we have now been wondering about combining a beach holiday with a slightly more “educational” trip by flying into New York, driving first up the coast towards Boston and ideally even further up into New England, then down to DC for a spot of sightseeing and then to Virginia for a few days on the beach.
We have looked through some guide books and that all looks feasible to me, but is it really?
We`d be taking Child 2 and 3 with us, who will be 12 and 9 at the time, so they have some stamina, but do you think the distances are ok? Or would be need to spend days and days on the road just to get from A to B?
- Is a beach holiday in Virginia a good idea? Virginia Beach looks nice, but is it? Everybody from Europe seem to only ever got to Florida or California for a beach holiday. Are they right or are they missing something in not going to Virginia?
- How warm is the sea likely to be? Is is nice to swim there or so cold that you need to be a hardy soul to swim?
- Any nice places to visit along that route or general good ideas?
As always, your input is greatly appreciated!
