Hi we would love some travel advice.

Me, my wife, 3 year old and 9 month old are planning to visit the USA for 6 weeks in December and January and are looking for some suggestions of where to go.

2 years ago when there were just three of us we flew to Oregon and did a road trip up troute 101 to Olympic National Park and Crater Lake visiting Seatle, Portland, bend, and a whole bunch of places in between. We loved the trip and are going to stay for an extended time this year.

Ideally we want somwhere warmer than the UK, a road trip, stuff to keep the kids entertained and to do some national parks.

Can anyone help with some suggestions?

Are you looking for someplace warm? Maybe some of the Southwest parks in Arizona and Utah,, like Grand Canyon South Rim and Zion? Bryce could have snow and you would probably have to rent a car with AWD or snow and mud tires, since you are not supposed to use chains on rental cars.
You could fly into Vegas and pick up your rental car there.
Or you could add in Death Valley.
California has some nice national parks and don't overlook state parks, like Jedediah Smith State Park which IMO is superior to Redwoods National Park.
Maybe Florida, Everglades and the Keys?
Any other interests?
