Weather & trip ideas for two weeks March 2015

Where is the best weather for a March trip to USA ? we will hire a car and trip around - looking for ideas - we love coast and mountains - but also have a toddler to entertain as well - don't mind spending a week in one place and a week in another unless campervan is better option.

any suggestions please? love USA so not too hot either.

HI,

You are in the California forum so are you asking about a 2 week trip in California or are you truly trying to ask where is best in the whole USA???

It is never "too hot" on the coast of California. We are not tropical like Florida!!

Weather is fickle in March. No way to know what kind of weather you'll encounter anywhere in the U.S. in the month of March. California's coast could be sunny and mild or stormy and wet. Climatologists see a wet year ahead, so could be the latter of the two. Could be snowing in the mountains, and, if so, you would be required to carry chains to put on your tires if asked to do so. I wouldn't venture into the mountains in a winter/spring month in and RV/campervan if you're not experienced with driving one. Especially where snow and ice could be a concern.

Lots of choices when it comes to California:

San Diego

Palm Springs

Disneyland

Los Angeles

The coast: Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, Big Sur, Monterey, Santa Cruz

San Francisco

Yosemite

Sequoia/Kings Canyon

The coast north of SF up to Redwood Nat'l Park

Additional road trip options you fit into a your visit:

The Grand Canyon

Death Valley

Las Vegas

Do some research and determine what piques your interests and we can help you formulate a plan.

"..... so somewhere warmish in March."...

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hawaii, Mexico or the Caribbean. Can not guarantee warm weather in California in March. It might be warm in Palm Springs and Death Valley that time of year, but can't guarantee that either if winter lingers next year.

HB has great avatars and the best part is that they change often. I look forward to seeing her avatars more than her replies

Just kiddin...HB covers Northern California and Oregon like no one else and that is a FACT

So HB -- Curious are you half routing for the England Soccer team or did you give up on them?

I sometimes think about changing my avatar, but I would miss seeing my Kibbles every day. Tomorrow marks 5 years since she left us. *Sniff*Sniff*

Awww, Kibbles, so sorry. But they always live on in your heart. I lost my 18 year old last fall. His soul has been reborn in the 18 month old who is now ruling the roost. (Man, I forgot how playful they are!)

The Dahlia however, is forever :)

Thank you, Dahlia! I will always miss my feisty girl. She had quite the history! She was feisty right to the end and I loved that about her. :-)
