It depends what you mean by ocean. You can see the Firth of Forth from the New Town. Portobello, formerly a beach resort, is a few miles from the centre of town. If you want to go a bit further, take the A1 (or train) south towards England for some spectacular North Sea coast views.

Edinburgh is situated on the south bank of the forth estuary so is borderline river/ocean (where does a river end and an ocean start?) Local to Edinburgh is the suburb of Leith which in my opinion is a very pleasant day trip, although remnants of industry still exists. Heading east and south from Edinburgh on the A1 heading towards England there are ...

Personally once you get past Dallas/Fort Worth area the scenery will consist of a whole lot of nothing. So if you're looking to take in West Texas life your choices are: Wichita falls - Amarillo or Abilene - Lubbock To me the choice is equally dreary though the Abiline - Lubbock Route using US-84 is likely to provide easier access to little towns ...

I would recommend the Juwangsan National Park, where you can visit the Jusanji Pond. This is where Kim Ki-duk shot his famous movie Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring, hence on top of finding dark skies to watch the stars, you can enjoy the breath-taking atmosphere of the pond during day time.

Fortunately there's a website for this! Lightpollutionmap.info visually shows you the most light polluted areas. Naturally it tends to be around cities. The area along roads east of Chech'on and Andong look to be your best bets, that I can see, but a bit of panning around the areas you're visiting, you may have a chance. A car is likely going to be ...

Google Maps shows your two proposed routes as having a less than 5 mile and less than 10 minute difference. Which one is "faster" becomes almost entirely irrelevant at that point. So we're left with "more scenic." Of the two routes, one (via Payson) runs almost entirely through Tonto National Forest and Sitgreaves National Forest, while the other (via ...

As Karlson notes, 120 miles is casting a fairly wide net. This would include parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont in addition to part of New York. If you want to explore options in New York, you can visit the state Department of Transportation's page on the Scenic Byways program: ...

I did that train ride a few years ago and remember sitting on the right side of the train. The River was on the right side for most of the time as well. We were in a compartment and we could always go outside to stand in the corridor to look out on the left side as well. I don't remember it being a very narrow valley, so I think you have some views on both ...

North Berwick is a nice wee town. Its easy to get to from Edinburgh, about half an hour on the train. Or a bit longer by car, depending on where in Edinburgh you are starting from. If you are interested in wildlife, North Berwick is home to the Scottish Seabird Centre. To experience more of the ocean, you could take a boat trip. These include regular ...
