Default FCI Berlin visitation in December? Or wait until spring?

Hi my son is FCI Berlin and we were thinking about going to visit in December. We are concerned about the weather. We live in Texas so not used to all the snow and ice. Would it be better to wait til Spring? Also does anyone have any situations on where to stay? Thanks!

December is the better out of the winter months to go. I am assuming you are flying into Manchester airport? That is about two hours south of the prison. If you fly into Boston it is even longer and more traffic. Best places and really only places to stay are Gorham NH. Next town over from Berlin. It looks to be a short distance on a map but takes about 20 minutes to get to the prison. If you don't go in December then plan on waiting until May. I lived there for many years. If you have questions let me know.

I hope you go in December. I'm from the south and have visited many times in the north. go a little bit early to make sure you have enough time. Climate change has made weather pretty unpredictable. Just make sure they rent you a car with good snow tires and know that there is plenty of help if it snows. Lots of good advice here on managing a federal visit. Let us know how it goes.
