A few years back (pre-9/11) when I had no passport (US) but needed to get far far away, I went to American Samoa. Aside from being far far away, it has very little to recommend it.

I remember that Travis McGee Novel where he goes to Pago Pago and says "wow, this sucks."

Cuba is great, and the price is "ok".

I went to Haiti once, whoa, it was fucked up.

So, don't go there.

Woah, hang on, explain spring breakers to us Britishes please. We are planning Florida at the end of February - is there some sort of time when the world is taken over by puking teenagers?

Spring break is the time between winter and spring university terms in the US, late March/early April in essence. Late February shouldn't be a problem, but Alfred Soto or other Miami-based folk would be the ones to ask.

But it is cold.

Not going to Miami, going to the other side (Bradenton, to be precise). I could ask my brother who lives there, but I don't think they go out much and they probably wouldn't notice.

Oh, yes indeed! Easter is the time for high school kids to go on spring break and vomit in public places, as the drinking ages are lower outside of the US. University breaks vary, as they may not fall around Easter, and are not standard from school to school. The university I work at now gets two spring breaks (?) at weird times. If I hear another student say how "awesome" Miami Beach is, someone will get cold cocked in the head. However, I went to a big public university up North, and we had a week in March, not necessarily around Easter. It all depends. Spring may just be the season of the vomming teens / 20 somethings.

if you go to montana, my little brother lives in a little town outside of bozeman and his neighbor rents out a very nice house to people. not through airbnb or anything, just to family/friends of people who live in the town. my bro works at the gibson guitar factory if you want a tour, he can set one up.
