I definitely want to see the Maine coast before I die. July average temps in Portland are 60/80. Tempting.

Go for it! The coast tends to be cooler than inland. It will be humid most days but usually bearable. Depending on how much time you have you can hit different spots along the coast. There are so many little towns with quaint shops and restaurants, you can go out sailing or whale watching and eat lobster to your heart's content. If you head up to Acadia you can get not only the coastal experience but also a taste of what Maine's interior looks like in Acadia National Park. Maine is our "get out of dodge" spot because it's close and has so many different types of areas to visit.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Look into Door County, Wisconsin. Towns are Sturgeon Bay, Egg Harbor to look up the weather. I'm not sure about hookups. It's beautiful, lots of interesting history.

Williams, AZ is a nice little town west of Flagstaff to escape the heat. 30 miles from Flag and all the good restaurants.

I'm amazed no one has suggested Ruidoso NM to get away. We spent part of the summer there in 2018 and it is beautiful. It is at around 7200 ft and great scenery. Depending on where you are in tx either a 1 or 2 day drive. We found that's LOTS of Texans call this home in the summer.

If I lived in TX I'd head to the Ruidoso New Mexico area for cooler weather. I've watched the temp in that area every day this summer and it's been very pleasant compared to TX and AL.

If I wanted to be cooler and do some fantastic fishing, I'd head to a little town in Idaho, and stay all summer.

Ruidoso does have good temps...July is 52/80. 800 miles and 12 hours from the Houston area. Not bad.

Was in Glacier NP July 2018. Temps at home in Texas were 110-117 during the day of the heatwave, 97-102 normally. Was 75 during the day and upper 50's during the night.
Would like to try Banff or Jasper next time we're up that way.
