CAR IS GETTING HOT, REPLACED THERMOSTAT, STILL GETTING HOT, WHAT ELSE CAN I TRY

Does it run hot in slow traffic, at highway speeds, or both? Does the electric radiator fan turn on? Could have a leaking head gasket. Radiator cooling fins could be rotting off or could be plugged with a bug collection. Radiator could be plugged. Really need more details to prevent guessing.
Just bought last week, drove it home , was 3 hour drive had no problems, went back down road got home engine was hot, put in new thermostat still getting hot
The thermostat is the least likely suspect and the last thing to try. You didn't answer any questions. What speeds does this occur at? Do you have a gauge on the dash that's reading "hot", or how do you know it's overheating? Does the electric fan turn on when it's hot?
