Australia is probably too far considering the length of the trip. I'd prefer an International location and a place where we can get a good deal on a flight from Houston. I'm just looking for suggestions and I'll figure out the flight costs, etc.

Thanks! I appreciate your suggestions. Keep 'em coming
Fly to Halifax, NS and rent a car. Drive up through the Atlantic and Maritime Provinces. Lots of inexpensive B&B's to stay at (Definitely reserve in advance) You could spend the entire time in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

Alternately Fly to St. Johns, Newfoundland where there's tons of night life and spend the week exploring NF--again, lots of reasonable B&B's.

It's cool but not cold and the people are great!

The North shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota rarely gets above 85!

Umm Thailand is not considered cool weather.

By the way your post will be removed by the mods for blatant advertising.

Windsurfung (excellent in the Caberete area), snorkeling, parasailing, sailing, scuba diving and deep sea fishing are all readily available.
Lol......the OP was looking for cool weather from June-August. I don't think DR has that....maybe the highlands though.

The west coast of Oregon! We'll be there in August, too, God willing. It's great getting up to 60 degrees & sleeping with a blanket. But if you go inland just a few miles, it can drastically change to 90!

So probably anywhere on the west coast from Washington thru most of California would work for you. Have a great time!

We're planning a long weekend trip to Washington and Oregon over Labor Day, sounds like I'm going to have to take a look at the weather and pack layers. Thanks for the heads up!

If you are looking for a relief from the xcessive heat, there are two additional options within your budget. N. Wisconsin and N. Minnesota would both qualify as substantially cooler. The one thing that you would have to do is to bring a lot of mosquito repellent.

Also, it would be a great year for an Alaskan cruise. The cruises are very inexpensive this year.

I would love to plan a vacation to get away from the humidity and heat.....if only for a week. When you break into a sweat taking a short walk from your car to the grocery store....it is just too hot! I had to take a shower when I got home just to keep from smelling funky.
