Summer 2013 Road Trip, Help Please

Jump to last reply

The scheme has been hatched, and it sounded so easy at first. We've decided on a mother-daughter-dog road trip in Europe this summer in lieu of summer camps and lazy days at the pool. The challenge now is deciding where to go, so I'm asking for suggestions from Fodorites before we just throw a dart at the map. Here are the established travel parameters:

1. As a family we have traveled to several of Europe's major cities, but are not opposed to seeing any place again, except for the UK, where we will be over the school spring holiday; and Prague, where we just spent a week during winter break. And of course Vienna, where we live.
2. We desire not to drive more than 3-4 hours (tops) each day unless it works in the itinerary. We are driving our personal vehicle, so we will not need car leasing suggestions.
3. Would like to stay at least two nights in each place visited, mostly to ease road-weariness.
4. The trip will begin sometime after school is dismissed, mid June. We need to be back home to Vienna not later than 1 August. Whether we travel for one week or six is flexible.
5. Family-friendly, and dog-friendly non-hotel lodging suggestions would be welcome, as well. Our daughter turns 12 this summer, so we don't need very young child lodging.
6. We're aiming for a budget-friendly trip, but no campgrounds.
7. We enjoy both outdoor and cultural activities, and can manage time on a beach for a few days.

Thank you, in advance.
