I was wondering if most people go on holiday in North America in May and June? Where is the best place that you would go and for how long? After a cold winter the thought of swimming in the Caribbean waters must be very enticing! We met a couple from Boston on a cruise and they mentioned that they often did to get away from the cold weather by heading south.

Southern states are generally warm then, but storms can be threatening. Southern California has beautiful springs usually. A friend just returned from Mexico (west coast) and loved it.

Storms near the Caribbean can also be something to note. Flew over one once and it was rather scary! I have heard California is so beautiful.

@dianadee It is very beautiful and the southern part is extremely crowded but with great beaches and pretty warm ocean water. It is best to avoid driving as much as possible. Northern California is beautiful too. The Oregon (where I live) coast is the most beautiful of all I think and very few people are around compared to Calif.

I housesat for a couple several years ago when they went to Arizona for the winter. Then I housesat for their friends while they went to Alaska for the summer. Both couples were retired and had lots of money. There are a lot of places to visit in the U.S.

House sitting is such a good idea! Do you get paid well? We are off to Ireland ...any house sitters needed there?

@dianadee I didn't get any money for it but I got to stay in the houses for free with all the bills (garbage, electricity, telephone etc.) paid. Saved a lot of money since the only things I had to pay for was food and gas, insurance and upkeep for my car.

@RichardMeister That is a saving in itself. Rental prices have increased too.

@dianadee I have lived 27 years in the south of France, I loved there, but it was too expensive to buy a house there when we were ready to retire.

People in our area go all year round Some like to head to the mountains when they are covered in snow, while others will wait for warm weather to go to the beach

Well it all depends on what type of vacation you want to so every state has a lot to offer but if you got time to Visit the USA i would try to spend at least 2 weeks in the state where ever you end up

@leesnell United States is so large with so many options and destinations. Do you travel yourself?

I don't live too far from Boston, and go south to our vacation home in Florida every year winter. Last May we visited Chicago. I would definitely visit New York City any time of the year.

Oh yes, the "snowbirds" travel south in the winter. But masses of people in the USA go on "destination" vacations. Theme parks do a booming business in the summer: Disney parks, Knotts Berry Farm, Dollywood, etc. Personally I'd like to travel to Europe, but in the spring or fall.

You are so spoilt for choice. Love the thought of visiting a theme park too! A kids dream place.

Traditionally, most Americans go on vacation from June to Labor Day as that's when kids are out of school.
