The coast arguably may be the best choice.
Take the grandkids to New York City on their summer vacation? Some of our RVing friends questioned our sanity.

After serving for eight years as the governor of Maine, Angus King became “king of the road.”
The day after he left office in January 2003, Mr. King; his wife, Mary Herman; and their two children â€” Ben, 12, and Molly, 9 â€” hit the road in a new 40-foot Newmar Dutch Star motorhome to see America.
