    Hi there, just dreaming of some sunshine!! Trying to decide where to go on holiday next year and looking for inspiration. Thinking of a few days in Philadelphia followed by hiring a car and driving onto a beach/private rental for a week. Any ideas or suggestions? There will be me, my husband, 2 teenage sons and possibly my mother.
