When to visit the USA
The simple answer is that the USA is great all year round and when you visit totally depends on what type of trip you're after. In case you hadn't noticed, the USA is pretty darn big so the weather can vary quite a bit from state to state. In winter time (generally November - March), parts of the US are covered in a thick layer of powdery white snow - perfect for winter sports lovers. In summer time, the Florida and California coasts come alive - you'll find endless stretches of sandy beaches to kick back and relax on. Prices tend to be highest during the school summer vacation (July/August) - travel during off peak times and you'll be sure to bag yourself a sweet deal or two.
