Spend 1-2 nights in Chicago, then head down to New Orleans, spend 3 nights there, then across to Gulf Shores, Alabama or the opposite direction to South Padre Island, Texas. South Padre or Gulf Shores will nice beaches and you’ll also get some culture/museums/architecture in Chicago, and nightlife and great food in New Orleans!

I have my eye on the Florida Keys… But, I see you are looking to drive, uh… Are you close to the side where Washington State is? You could go to Ocean Shores…

Most of California will be a bit chilly in November, although SoCal would be warm. But that’s a really long drive too. How about taking a car to Chicago then taking Amtrak the rest of the way to New Orleans? The Amtrak sleeper cars are pretty nice and you could stop overnight along the way in Memphis.

You could do Vancouver or Seattle to LA by train, too. http://www.amtrak.com/coast-starlight-train . Los Angeles should have nice weather year round!

@Honey-Bee:  average San Francisco weather in Nivember:

San Framcisco Bay is usually pretty chilly, even in summer, so if you’re looking for a beach to lay on or somewhere to go swimming, this isn’t it. I love San Francisco for 10000 other reasons but sunny autumn weather isn’t one! There is often a cold, light drizzle.

@Honey-Bee:  Im not sure where in western Canada you live but I LOVE Arizona.  Its super hot in the summer so its a good thing you arent going then but there is a lot to do if you like outdoorsy stuff.  You could stop in Utah at the Zion National Park…AMAZING!  No beach though…I would agree with a PP that southern CA would be a good option for you if you want beach.  FI and I are going to CA for our honeymoon.

I would most definitely drive down the Pacific Coast – a bunch of amazing national parks (Olympic, Mt Rainier, Crater Lake, Yosemite), wine country in Napa Valley, check out San Francisco, drive down through Monterey and Big Sur and end with SoCal where you would certainly get lots of beachiness. Accuweather says it’ll be in the high 70’s, which isn’t too bad.

Alternatively, I second the desert with Arizona and Utah. Plenty of hiking and adventures and you could get a hotel with a pool for your R&R. And I mean, I wouldn’t say no to seeing the Grand Canyon on my honeymoon.
