Hello hello, my friends and I are hoping to take a trip stateside this November.
We're all undecided about which city to go to having done New York and Miami.
So we're debating Boston, Chicago, San Francisco etc.
We're looking to have a laugh, shop and meet lots of lovely new people.
Any ideas, thoughts, info on where to go/what do do would be most welcome and helpful.
(Hopefully we'll stop squabbling amongst ourselves and get something booked this side of the millennium!)
So go on.... leave out nothing, tell us EVERYTHING 😊
(Best advice and winning city advisor is invited out with us for loads of jars and craic!)
(Oh and we're coming from Dublin if that makes any difference &#128521

If you're going in Nov I would avoid any northern cities that get hammered with snow. Go somewhere warm like San Fran or New Orleans.

Chicago may work, but it will depend on when in November you decide to come over here. Atlanta could be a good option as well.

Hmmm ... I don't really think there is much worry about snow before Thanksgiving in Chicago, so probably not in Boston either. If it were me I'd probably do one of those two and enjoy the crisp fall weather, maybe stop after a show for some some cider or hot chocolate, and a serving of hot apple pie with a slice of melted cheddar. If you get lucky you might get to see some lingering color on the trees. http://www.boston-discovery-guide.co...-weather-4.jpg Fun Things to Do in Boston in November 2013 | Activities CHICAGO events, fairs, festivals - November 2014

I'd do those places that are too humid & hot to do in the summer.

Maybe Washington, DC, Savannah, Charleston, New Orleans

If you were visiting in Sept or Oct, then I would recommend Boston and rural NE.

Agree. November is a bit too risky in the weather department
for Boston.

Like others mentioned, I like Charleston, SC (not to be confused with WV)
and Savannah, thrown in Myrtle Beach too.

If weather too cool (below normal), then head down to St. Augustine/Daytona Beach, FL

This obviously depends so much on what you wanna see, how much you care about the weather, and how long you have.

The cities you're debating are all good options but if you're seeking warmth then Chicago and Boston are definite nos. I think New Orleans should be a strong consideration. It's got interesting sites, great food, obvious party atmosphere and decent weather at that time. Los Angeles or San Diego also come to mind for the weather.

San Francisco is not warm besides a few weeks. Mostly it is cool, windy and overcast.
