Best Month for Grand Southern Tour (Start in LA)

21 Apr 2013 Maezinha asked


Hi all, I am thinking of the Grand Southern Tour next year and would like to know from you which is the best month month to travel to US, coz I live in Luanda, Angola, which is pretty hot and humid, I did a European Highlight in September last year and it was freezing coz it was autumn and I got back home with flu (even though it was worth it ;) ).

So to avoid this and because I want to be better prepared ;) I would like to know which months are the warmest? the month I am looking at August and September, but any other suggestions will be great.

Thanks in advances
