The coastal areas of the Pacific Northwest, which include Portland and Seattle, have a climate not dissimilar to England with mild rainy winters and changeable summers. Overall the best time to travel in these regions is between May to late September. If you’re looking to see the Autumn colours in New England October and early November are best. The Southern half of mainland America enjoys high levels of sunshine with summer temperatures to match. South Western states, such as Tennessee and Georgia, are humid with temperatures climbing regularly over 35°C in summer. There is also a risk of hurricanes in late summer.

If you’re eager for a winter break, then Florida sees high sun and around 24°C in January and February.
