For those who enjoy breathtaking views and long scenic drives, here are five US road trips you should consider.

  1. Acadia National Park, Maine. Hugging the Atlantic coastline, this park is open year round for winter skiing, spring fishing, or summer hikes.  This sprawling 47,000 acres park has rocky shores, granite mountain peaks, and everything from white-tailed deer to peregrine falcons.  Add to the experience a hike along the 120 mile trails or take a guided tour on a narrated bus.
  2. Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. Known for its pristine beaches and antiquated sea villages, you can get to Martha’s Vineyard by pre-booking a 45 minute car ferry.  Martha’s Vineyard is made up of six towns that have their own unique character. Most people have heard of Vineyard Haven or Oak Bluffs, however don’t miss the small fishing village of Menemsha, considered the best place to watch the sunset. People gather on the beach and applaud as the sun sets into the ocean.
  3. Overseas Highway, Florida. Running over 100 miles from Miami to Key West this is one of the best road trips showcasing Florida’s stunning turquoise waters and coral reefs. There are amazing places to stop on your journey including John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo or take the Pigeon Key Tour and then snorkel around the dock.
  4. Route 12, Utah. Here you will find red rocks majestically on display on this 124 mile journey. This byway passes a number of scenic viewpoints, including Red Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Boulder Overlook, Calf Creek Falls, and the infamous Hogback. The Hogback is not for the faint at heart to travel, however the scenery is remarkable. Also make a stop at the Kiva Koffeehouse for a ‘cup of joe’ and views of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
  5. Anchorage to Valdez, Alaska. This short but sweet 300 mile drive connecting the Glenn and Richardson highways will bring you to another level of paradise. The road is speckled with glaciers and mountain ranges that allow you to discover the natural wonders of the last frontier. Take an easy hike along Thunderbird Falls, which is famous for being a family friendly excursion, leading towards a gorgeous 200 foot waterfall. This incredible experience is well worth the trip.
