It's no good to head north in the summer. The only sure thing is to go up, up into the mountains and even then it can be warm there. Not a whole lot of places to go to escape the heat and humidity except up. In Arizona we go to the White Mountains. We've also been to Utah and Colorado mountains to cool off. I've roasted in Idaho, Montana, Michigan on other occasions. The only sure bet, though, is San Diego on the beach. Just my opinion.


Wow, all good ideas. Thanks

You could try to coast - specifically the west coast to stay cool in the summer... Farther north, better chance of comfortable day temps and respectable night temps, even in the hottest August days...

Interesting. I was wondering about the UP and then an easterly run over to Maine.

Generally, if you are on the downwind side of a Great Lake, it will be cooler; and although the humidity will be less than the Gulf area, it will still be humid. If you want cool-and-dry, you need to gain altitude west of the Mississippi.

My bro/sis-in-law "the Sunbirds" come to west Michigan from their Florida home, in late September and October. It's their break from the heat/humidity, and gives them the fall colors they miss.

Ed and I are Snowbirds - we'll be spending the winter in FL. Ed says we live a life of "Endless Summer"

Deb/Ed beat me to it. The Great Lakes are the key to the UP in the summer, specifically Superior which is a deep cold lake.

Go north, that's where snowbirds go back to, to avoid the heat in the south.

UP is nice, try Bay Furnace CG right on the lake, North shore is also nice along Superior. Superior will cool you down. Never had to use AC there. If you head to Maine stop in the White Mtns in New Hampshire on the way warn during the day and cool at night. In Maine I like Seawall CG in Arcadia which is close to the ocean and that water is cold all summer also. In the last 16 years I can count on one hand the times I needed to use the AC. Camp high or near the ocean or big lakes like Superior.
