Where to go for a 3 week road trip in the U.S. In July?

Hey everyone,

We're thinking about doing a 3 week long road trip in the U.S. in mid-July. We already roadtripped the West Coast a few years ago, and have already been to many places in Utah, Arizona, Nevada and California. Now we hesitate between the East Coast and the Midwest. What would you guys suggest? And where should we go/stop/visit? We don't mind spending a couple of days in big cities, but prefer driving through nature, hiking in some National Parks, stopping at ghost towns and maybe also lying for a day or two on the beach.

Looking forward for your tips!!! :)

You can start at San Francisco, there are so much to see culture and surrounding areas. Like a day trip to Napa Valley wine country, visiting some wineries. Also a day trip to 17 miles , MontereyPebble BeachCarmel By the Sea etc. and spend couple days to fix over SF itself. Also you can spend couple days drive to Lake Tahoe and take day or to to Yosemite National Park. After that you have two options: one is go up to SeattleBritish ColumbiaVancouver  or going down, take a nice drive along Highway 2, to Los Angeles and San Diego. It can be fun, if you still have 3-4 days to kill. Go to Vegas... A lots of to see there as well . Good luck .

The Pacific Northwest is great. Seattle, Portland, Vancouver and the points between.

We did an east coast road trip a couple of years ago - so much fun. We went through almost every state in New England (Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York - missed Maine). Part of our fun was visiting each state's capitol building and having lunch/dinner. We really relaxed in the scenery and enjoyed our time by the sea. We overlapped our trip with the Newport Jazz festival, staying in Jamestown (Rhode Island) where it was cheaper and used the water taxi for a night out in Newport. We really tried to travel as close to the coast as possible, visiting Plymouth (Massachusetts) for the rock, Portsmouth (New Hampshire) for awesome lobster, and Boston for shopping and a harbour boat ride. The further we got a way from the coast, the more we missed the ocean.
