I'm looking at doing an Amtrak vacation in the USA next year. The idea is to stay in New York (4 nights), Washington (1 night), Savannah (2 nights), Jacksonville (2 nights) & then on to a destination in Florida (7-10 nights, depending on cost).
We're a couple in our 30's and are looking to stay somewhere which has a good beach, reasonable hotel prices, nice restaurants. Not interested in clubbing and drinking but would like to stay somewhere which has a good atmosphere. Although we might stop in Orlando to visit Disney World, I don't think we want to stay in this area for the full duration of our Florida stay.
I realise the hurricane season is officially 1 June - 30 November. Sorry to be completely naive, but are there any beach resorts in Florida which are less exposed to storms/hurricanes which meet my criteria above?
Finally.....I know the weather between New York and Florida is very different. For your suggestions, could you let me know when the best time to visit is?
