A good idea? Any of you been there? Recommend it? Any suggestions?

As an aside, where else would you recommend for the July 4th weekend. It's hard to make up my mind!

Only thing, it should not be too hot, weather-wise.

Glad if you could help out.

I dont know about Maine. I heard that it is a snoozefest if anything.
Perhaps you should try the Carolinas. Because the party never stops
here.

Maine has excellent coastal scenery, great seafood, and cool temperatures. It's not the place for disco madness. Acadia National Park is a big draw. Kittery and Freeport are shopping towns. The deal is basically to drive along the seacoast, eat lobster, enjoy the picturesque New England towns, eat lobster, shop a little, eat lobster, take pictures, eat lobster ... you get the idea. I like that sort of quiet thing, but it is a matter of taste. I cannot think of a better East Coast summer location.

Other cool climate locations in the US are the Rockies, especially Yellowstone and Glacier Parks, and Alaska. Less well known, and a great favorite of mine is the Northern California/Oregon coasts, Eureka and north into Oregon. Spectacular rugged coasts, rivers, redwoods, and no one ever goes there, almost. It can be in the 60s on the beaches and over 90 ten miles inland.

It's a matter of taste, time, and expense.
