    Default Vacation

    For the last 25 years we have traveled somewhere outside the US for vacation, always the last couple weeks of July. This year we are thinking about staying in the US and going somewhere we can drive. If you were recommending somewhere to go that you can drive from SC, post it up. We always go the 2nd-3rd week of July. Family owns a small business and always closes the same 1-2 weeks each year, so canít change the dates. Thinking about the gulf coast or road trip up thru northeast, Niagara Falls then maybe Maine/Vermont. Give me some ideas?

    Maine is a cool state. I would like to get back up there to visit soon.

    Wife and I want to do a trip one day where we fly into Missoula, then 2 weeks later fly out of Denver. Rent a vehicle and go to all the National Parks, including Glacier. Go fly fishing for a day or two and just take our time cruising down towards Denver.

    For me, late July would push me north or at least to higher altitudes. Mid summer heat and weather is barely tolerable to the indigenous folks in the deep South. Add to that the possibility of surprise hurricane weather and you should probably cross the gulf coast off your fixed-date vacation list.

    Maine is pretty incredible.

    Start south and work your way up the coast to Mount Desert Island. Spend several days on the island and enjoy Acadia National Park. Hike, bike, sea kayak, eat and drink.


    BUT, Pretty much all that stuff is currently closed and I have no idea when it will open. At lot of the states you are going to go into have mandatory quarantines as well, so there's that too.

    If it opens between now and then, it gets my vote.

    As said above there will likely be lots of restrictions anywhere north. I’d keep it southern and plan according to the July heat

    Homosassa for fishing/scalloping is pretty laid back

    Along with the possibly continuing restrictions in the Democrat States, a trip up the Maine Coast from Boston to Acadia National Park, etc, is outstanding. HOWEVER, we learne on our trip up that coast that you probably don't want to go between July 4th and Labor Day. That's when the lines go from a few people to cars backed up for miles. The Bar Harbor population goes from about 3000 to 30,000, although this year may be different.

    Mountains of west North Carolina/Tennessee. Trout fishing, hiking trails, winding roads. Don't know what driving through northern states may bring, and flying? Nah.

    I know it's probably already been recommended but it's hard to beat myrtle beach
