Road trip Dec/Jan - New York to Miami

Hi, my husband and I are wanting to bring our kids (17. 15 & 12) to the USA around 25 December until 12 January.

We are thinking of flying in to New York and staying for 2/3 nights (from New Zealand) and then road tripping down to Miami.

Is this doable? (We love driving and road tripping) but just looking for advise and must see places along the way???

Hi Junell

Do you have Winter driving experience? Snow and icy conditions are a real possibility that time of year.

Tripadvisors actual dedicated ROAD TRIPS FORUM is the best place to seek advice on this topic, also

Lots of experienced members who can advise you there

You can use the link below to reach the Road Trips Forum

Definitely post on Road Trips.  For advice tailored to you it would help to know a few things - max hours per day you wish to drive, if you prefer to see more places with different locations each night or just a few places with longer stays in each, attractions/locations already on your list, specific interests such as history, museums/other culture, nature, etc.  (Must sees vary from group to group.)

Also, add whether youre planning to do the Car Rental as a One Way rental, so dropping it off in Miami, Florida when youre finished with it, and flying back to New Zealand from Florida ...
