Not meaning to put you off, but do you realise how hot, wet, humid and uncomfortable August can be in Florida? Expect torrential rain most afternoons, followed by 100% humidity and higher chance of tropical storms. It is not really the best time of year to visit Florida. The West coast temps and rainfall depend on where you are planning to go, as they vary a lot.
I know figgygirl, its just its been my husbands goal to go back and we don`t know what the next scan result will be, he is stage 4 cancer. This is our first holiday in 4 years and as we have three kids we cannot keep taking them out of school. I just don`t know what else we can do as every time I suggest things he says its not the same as going to America and the kids scream Disney! We could do Paris Disney but he won`t!
