@2012FutureMrsC: hahaha, July is HHH time! Hazy Hot and Humid is pretty much what to expect. I would go to the coast, near water there is more of a breeze. I know it’s not really close to Kentucky, but Maine is nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

It depends on your definition of miserably hot. Many people vacation here in July because they say it is much cooler. (I still think it is hot though average temps are below 80 for July.) It is pretty cheap here to. What do you envision doing on your honeymoon?

@2012FutureMrsC:  be prepared.  Its gonna be a scorcher.  I know its not close to KY but heatwaves in philly can last 10 days so I imagine if you stick below the carolinas it is not going to be fun down there.  weather is crazy tho, it was 86 on monday and it will be 67 today.

More midwestern, but what about Chicago? It’s one of my favorite cities and although I haven’t been there in July, I would guess that the water keeps it a little cooler than other places. I would think hotel would be the biggest expense, but because there are so many I’m usually able to find a good deal on Priceline or something similar. Good luck!

@2012FutureMrsC: York is nice and is at the bottom of the state so it’s a little closer. lol. It’s near alot of fun places to visit. York Harbor Inn is nice, again the rates go up because its summer, but I still think they are reasonable. (they have a website)

Hampton Beach in New Husband is wicked close and they have a boardwalk. I used to stay in Rye which is right next to Hampton and we would always go to the boardwalk. It was fun.

All this talk is making me want to go there in the summer! lol gotta get through the winter first. ;P

Whatever you choose to do, i’m sure it will be fun ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep us updated!

Outer Banks of NC – beautiful and not overly populated – but it will be hot.

my biggest suggestions though would be Charleston SC – Its a beautifu, romantic, historic city with tons of southern charm! cobblestone streets, old homes and its right on the water! from downtown you are only 10 minutes from folly beach, Isle of Palms or Sullivans Island (all really nice beaches). They have an awesome nightlife and tons of shopping – its not a huge city so if you get the right hotel you can walk almost anywhere! (side note * july in SC is super hot! but not unbearable, i got engaged there in july 2010)

I thought of Maine immediately, too.  It shouldn’t be hot, even in July.  If you want quintessential Maine (rocky coast, lobsters, light houses), Portland area is nice and it’s much closer than Bar Harbor and some of the other famous areas in Maine (and more affordable too).  There’s also lots of cool places to stop along the way, like Mystic, CT and Boston.

Outer Banks might be nice, too.. But it would be crowded and hot!

July is definately going to be hot whereever you are ๐Ÿ™‚

But, in New England, our version of “hot” might be more like “warm” for you ๐Ÿ™‚

Outer Banks, NC

York, ME

Newport, RI

Cape Cod, MA

Boston ๐Ÿ™‚


Are you looking to be more remote (like renting a house for the two of you) or would you prefer boardwalks/people/nightlife? Do you want access to beaches?
