Canada and Nova Scotia/PEI in particular are enjoyable. You can watch the whales and visit a number of cultural museums.

> recommend?

I haven't found it yet, but after spending a couple of years in the north Georgia mountains I know that's not it. It was still rather warm at 2000ft in July and August. We're also native Floridiots. I've read that roughly 5000ft+ is the sweet spot.

If you truly want to be cooler in the summer, then head for the mountains of New Mexico or southern Colorado. 7000' or higher will keep you very comfortable with balmy days and cool nights. Forget humid areas like Georgia and N.Carolina.

We spend the summers in Maine and Michigan. Usually July and part of August in Maine , then head to northern Michigan till we return to Fl. We stay at resort type places, so can't help with the price range you are targeting, but check out coastal areas of down east Maine and area around Traverse City, MI for parks the suit your needs. If you want to go further north, into the UP of Michigan, there are some nice state parks and one place I liked was the town campground at Munising, MI.. near Painted rocks national lakeshore.

Thanks JoeH, we're thinking about going up to Michigan next summer. I presume areas on the lakes are cooler than inland?

Good luck finding a place near traverse city for $400/month. You might find a place in the UP but it will be few and far between and not be near a big city like Munising ( big city for the UP). More likely to some place closer to Mohawk - and don’t worry, there is no extra charge for the bugs.

Alaska sounds GREAT. With the mechanic and parts shortages a long trip worries me. But it’s something to consider. Oh and I didn’t get “the juice” so I probably wouldn’t be allowed through Canada. I’ll think about it but it probably won’t work for us.

I would like to go there to but being 80 I can't seem to convince kids and mama that it would be ok. But it was ok to put 12,000mi on DP in 18 months up and down the Eastern US since Covid.
