Favorite summer trips? - Need some ideas!

What have been some of your favorite trips?

-Looking to get out of the Midwest
-I don't like cities - beaches or mountains are preferable
-A plane trip that is no longer than 4ish hours from the midwest

Right now, looking at:
Banff in Canada
Hilton Head
Somewhere pretty in Idaho?

I do love hiking, but beaches sound nice, too. I want somewhere pretty and/or quaint.

of northern California too far away? They are beautiful! Lots of neat little towns. Hike all day. You can easily see a bit of the ocean too if your wish.

It's been years, but McCall, Idaho, north of Boise, is a nice spot. There is hiking, rafting and fishing. The summer we went there was an outdoor theatre performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. There are fun shops to browse with locally grown huckleberry jam.

I am planning a few relaxing days on the Oregon coast. It is so gorgeous there. Vancouver and Victoria Canada was nice too

I loved Idaho. I am from the East Coast and went there several years ago. It's a big state with a lot to offer. I remember the mountains most. We visited Sun Valley Idaho and traveled through beautiful mountainous areas before heading down to the Snake River. There we stayed at a spa in Stanley Idaho (population of less than 70) and took a guided tour of the Snake River. I can't remember how many days we stayed in Idaho but we also traveled to Boise and went to see the blue football field at Boise State. I am a big fan of TripAdvisor when you are looking for popular destinations. Enjoy your research before deciding what you'd enjoy most.

Our family cottage on Cape Cod still has a couple weeks available for rental. We have a private neighborhood beach and easy access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking. PM me if you’re interested.

We spent almost a week in Gatlinburg, TN 3 years ago and are planning to return this summer.

There is SO much to do there! Downtown Gatlinburg has some neat little shops, restaurants, and distilleries. We didn't venture in the direction of Pigeon Forge, but that's in the same area and has the Dollywood parks (one is a water park). There are cabins to rent all around and lots of outdoor activities if you'd rather stay away from the crowds. You can zipline, go whitewater rafting, camp, hike, etc. The Great Smoky Mountains national parks is there to visit. It's also all very affordable. Highly recommend!
