SFO + where for warm sun in April?

Having a enjoyed a holiday in San Francisco in October 2005, we would like to take our son to visit. However, we realise it might be like Scottish weather in April -maybe warm, maybe cold.

Where else in the US could we go for a week without incurring big flight prices that would be warm and sunny?

We all have been to LA and San Diego so we want somewhere else.

We 'did' New York and Washington DC last year [it was freezing!]

If it has to be in April, it's hard to pick any place that is sure to be warm. Even the desert that time of year can be chilly. Most likely to be warm? Grand Canyon maybe, still gamble though. Miami?

Hawaii? If you book early enough there can be good deals on flights from Oakland or SFO.

Your best choice is Hawaii or Miami. You can be in SF for a couple of days then take a flight straight to Hawaii. Orr you can just fly directly to Miami..or you can go to Puerto Rico too (US Territory inthe caribbean). They are all tropical.

Thanks for replies.

Miami sounds a good idea -never been there.

Wonder what's the cheapest way of multi-flights from the UK {Scotland] to SFO then Miami and return.

Any ideas?

SFO is very far out of the way. If there are no direct flights, you will want to fly through an east coast hub, NYC, Atlanta wouldn't be too bad.

..if you do decide to go to Miami...rent a care and drive down to Key West (about 4 hour drive). The drive is beautiful.

Sorry forgot to add...

Here's a map of the drive from Miami to Key West. You'll basically just drive straight the whole way (really easy!) and you drive past all the little islands or keys.

Arizona is lovely in April! How about Phoenix and/or Tucson? If your timing is good the desert will be in bloom.

Hadn't thought about Arizona.

Will read up on it.

Thank you.

pretty much anywhere in florida should be pretty warm in april...plenty of warm days in the 80s. it can get colder in the 60s and 70s, but is is usually very nice. i go to the beach alot starting in march and april. there are plenty of fun and cheap places to visit, especially orlando, clearwater, and miami.
