East coast in August

VMware unbalanced
Feb 10 7 Comments

So far I've been to East coast only briefly (DC - rather liked, NYC - hated). Want to see what's there, unfortunately, I have to travel in August. Family of 4. Choosing between 2 options: 1) American south - GA, SC. 2) Boston then Maine.
I know it's August, and I understand the south can be pretty hot and humid.
But the main question - where can we escape crowds in August?

  • Do you want to go to the beach or do you want to go someplace like acacia NP?

      Yes, I'd like to go to the beach for a part of the vacation.

    There are some great water parks in upstate NY. You can even try national parks in Pennsylvania or Smokies.

    Why not keep going north? Quebec, PEI and Newfoundland. Plenty of stuff to see and do, nice weather and not many people. You can take a ferry from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland and get a room onboard, but you’ll need to book in advance.

    Don’t get me wrong it’s all busy but going to smaller towns in the north give you a better shot bc ultimately they have a max capacity that from a place to stay perspective can’t be exceeded; it can be a b* to get to but once you’re there it is decent; if you do go south kiawah island and Duck NC are both nice BC no big hotels so max cap is low...duck is a b* to get to traffic wise though

    So less people in August in Maine than in Hilton Head / Tybee island / such places in South?

    Boston/Maine will be your best bet; Boston bc it’s a city and good at handling a lot of people and in general people vacation in the south on the east coast; the beaches from NJ to Florida are zoos from June to Sept
