Where do you go to escape the Summer heat?

Eventhough it's still cold in most places, where's the best/favorite places to go to escape the heat and humidity of the the south during the summer? Just wanting to make plans now to get out of Houston's hot and sticky weather.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Come on up here to Western New York. It has never hit 100 degrees here and even days into the 90's are relatively rare. You can be right near either Lake Erie or Lake Ontario or the Finger Lakes for even more moderate temps.

Spent August of 2014 in Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie Michigan last year. Got as hot as 75 one of the days.

Lots to explore and enjoy around Mackinaw and on the UP. Don't miss afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel (my DW's first choice).

Good Luck

Come on up to Pagosa Springs, Colorado, where all the OTHER Texans hang out.

Or, if you're interested in a HIGHER elevation, try Creede, Colorado, and the Mountain Views RV Park, inhabited by almost ALL Texans.

Having been born in Texas, I understand the mass migration outta there in the summer....

As just said. Northrun Meeshegun. Especially the Straits area and Lake Michigan side. If you are really warm go up to Superior and on into Canada. You have to time it right because the black flies and mosqitoes can be ferocious.

We have spent the last three years in Lake City, CO and plan to do so again this year. We have tried a lot of other locations in Colorado but like Lake City above all. It is never hot.

I'll give a shout out to the 'plateau' in Crossville TN. Last year was there over Labor Day, and never had any temps in 100s and only a couple in 90s, and amazingly the humidity was low also.

Pacific NW Coast (OR/WA) or high in the CO mountains. Both are excellent in summer.
