You can’t get on planes or trains due to the current situation? Let’s enjoy a good ol’ fashioned road trip. In all honesty, nothing compares to exploring an open road with the freedom of being in your vehicle and away from people.
Luckily, the USA is home to some of the most scenic roads in the world. You have millions of kilometers of roads to explore in the USA. So if you think you have seen everything this land has to offer, think again!
Get some road trip snacks and start learning about the 7 most scenic roads you’ll see!
1. Route 66: Chicago to California
Starting with the most famous road of them all: Route 66! This is where nostalgic dreams are located, with all the gorgeous scenery this road has to offer.
This road trip can take 2 weeks to complete, which means 14 days of enjoyment. But if you have only one weekend to spare, drive through the route from St. Louis to the edge of Texas, it takes only two days, and it’s the best stretch.
2. Pacific Coat Highway: The entire cost of California
Turn your teenage dream into reality by going on a road trip with the roof down and the stereo playing the ultimate road trip song: “Driving down the 101, California here we come..”
The Pacific Coast Highway, or the 101 highway, is a gorgeous stretch of road that takes 5 days to finish and links the North and South of California together. The five days would include enjoying the splendid natural scenery, standing at the top of towering cliffs, and watching the waves crashing below you.
If you are looking for a shorter road trip, start in San Francisco to reach L.A. to see the route’s best bits, and it would take you no more than 5 hours!
3. Great River Road: Minnesota to New Orleans
GRR is a commonly known route for all road trip enthusiasts because it follows the Mississipi River’s great course. It may not be the fastest way to get to New Orleans from Minnesota, but it’s undoubtedly one of the prettiest.
