In a vast country like the United States, there is no shortage of epic road trips. From the majestic mountain ranges to the shining sea, the country’s most breathtaking destinations are waiting to be explored by you. Beyond that, these road trips help us discover more about the rich American culture, its topography, music, cuisine, and more. The many possibilities for detours add more reasons to be excited. With the pandemic still messing up our travel plans, road trips can be a good socially distanced option to travel and explore. If you don’t have a car, you can get one from good car rental companies in US and enjoy the road trip of a lifetime with your family or friends. Here are some of the best road trips for you to consider.
Whiskey road trip on Route 66
If you are planning on discovering the real essence of America through your cross-country road trip, then the best route to choose is Route 66. The 2,000-mile road starts from Chicago and stretches all the way to LA. The key attraction of this route is (you might have guessed it from the heading) whiskey. You can find many leading craft distilleries on your trip through Route 66. It’s not practical to stop at all of them. But, make sure to stop by at any of the famous ones. This includes the Few Spirits in Chicago and the Red Fork Distellery in Tusla. Do keep in mind to drink responsibly.
Southwest parks road trip
Want to hit as many national parks as possible in a single road trip? Then try out the southwestern road. Traveling through Utah and Arizona, you will be able to hike Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park, Arches National Park, and finally the Grand Canyon. If you have some extra days to spend, then do try out the trails and river rafting in the canyon.
Road trip through colorado
Take this 420-mile road trip to discover the stunning beauty of Centennial State. This weeklong road trip will take you to the many small towns along the Colorado Creative Corridors which are thriving with art scenes. You will be able to fish salmon from Colorado’s largest reservoir and visit the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It is considered the least visited national park in the US.
Oregon Coast Road Trip
Love the outdoors?! This six-day-long road trip is along the coast of Oregon and is ideal for outside lovers. The rocky coastline of Oregon has everything from exciting rock formations and seaside dunes to evergreen forests and vibrant marine ecosystems. You can hike, kayak, or stroll around through the historic old town in the region.
Great River Road drive
The Mississippi River has a mystic charm over the American landscape. Take a trip through the Great River Road National Scenic Byway and you will experience exactly what this charm is. Stretching over 3000 miles across 10 states, travelers take around 4 to 10 days to complete the journey. However, it would really take a lifetime to experience what the Great River Road can offer. Take this trip to discover the vibrant music, culture, food, and landscapes as you travel through tiny riverside villages and vibrant metropolises.
