Weather Planning for Vacation

When planning a vacation, be aware of your destinations weather and temperatures. Some folks who come to Las Vegas, NV, think just because they're coming to "the desert", that it's going to be warm.


Not if you come in the winter months, we, too, have cold weather. You might be be getting a inexpensive plane fare and hotel rates, but you could have to spend your savings at a local clothing store buying warmer clothes than what you brought with you. I've heard of lots of people who have to buy long sleeves shirts and jackets, after arriving to what they thought was going to be a warmer climate.

You are so right. I went camping in Nova Scotia one year in May, & they had just had a snow storm. It wasn't much fun. Nova Scotia is beautiful though.

There is a website called you can go to and if you type in the city, state and country you can get a seven day forecast of that place-we always check this site when we are packing for a trip anywhere.
