Open for suggestions of places to stay.
Thanks
I would either head up the east coast and return through the middle of the US OR I would head up the middle and back down the coast.

In Old Orchard Beach, ME, stay at Ne're Family Campground right in town. 3 blocks from the beach, across the street from the lobster pound. Decent cost per night compared to the other RESORTS!! Actually, about half. Then, head on up to Bar Harbor to Acadia NP. If you get there before about June 20, the price is much less. The "season" starts then.

On the coast, make Hunting Island State Park in SC, a stop. Assateague NP is wonderful, Point Lookout SP in MD is great, Ocean City, MD is also fun if you like lots of people, lots of stuff to do.

If I were you do Niagara first on your way north you don't want to be in Maine in April or May due to the black flies (little tiny biting x@&#$%), they are nasty. They are only there in the spring. Have a fun safe trip.

Thanks but I will be in Boston. Will go north to Portland and turn left. Are they inland, on the coast or everywhere?

Make sure you make reservations for TopSail a year out or you many not get any. DW was looking yesterday for a week this summer and that's a NOGO.

Also checkout Fort Pickens Pensacola You will love it.

New England winners

We did a 17 day New England trip from Ohio up through NY, VT, NH, ME (Acadia NP), MA, RI, CT, and back. In ME, we stayed at Hadley's at Acadia National Park - it was ok. Mid-June - we missed the flies. Our highlights were Hammonasset State Park in Connecticut (on the Beach - awesome with huge sites) and Winter Island Park in Salem, Mass. Winter Island is an old Coast Guard station right on the water - very cool. Kind of run down, but cool. Don't go there if you are looking for a resort-type place. It's rustic, on the water, lots of history. There's an old light house and such. We took the commuter train into Boston each day and then back to Salem (about 25 minute train ride). We were there for the 4th of July and watched mega fire works over the bay from our site which backed right up to the water.
