Maine Coast drive

I'm planning a trip this July with my soon-to-be college grad daughter up the coast of Maine and then New Brunswick, PEI, and Cape Breton Island. It all begins w/ a family reunion in York.

Adventure Activities In Los Angeles In July.

Hi guys.

I am planning a trip for a group through the united states spending 6 days in Los Angeles and 5 days in NYC.

Are there are good websites/links to anything we could do for a day in and around the Los Angeles area. Really after the most mind bending action packed adventures we can find?
