United States’ most scenic road trips

United States’ most scenic road trips

Does traveling by plane feel like traveling to you? I know to me it doesn’t. Of course, sometimes it can be exciting. You might be able to enjoy some beautiful views here and there, if you are lucky enough to have a window seat. But the view is still quite limited. That is why, most of the time, I don’t mind taking the longer route and traveling by car, bus or train as long as I can enjoy the beauty of nature.

I’ve always thought of traveling as a full journey. One that includes the views I get to see and the activities I get to do while heading to my destination. And I know I’m not the only one that thinks this way. There are a lot of you out there that have taken a few days off to hit a certain scenic road without a plan in mind. Just to enjoy the beauty of a road trip. Planning to hit the road again for the same purpose? The following list of America’s most scenic roads trips might give you some ideas where to head next.

 

Check out United States’ most scenic roads to travel

 

1 – Overseas Highway, Florida

This breathtaking overseas highway, a series of roads and bridges from Florida all the way to Key West, is the final result of years of construction and reconstruction. Henry Flagler’s construction, originally called the Florida East Coast Railway, began in 1905 and finished in 1912, but was seriously damaged after a 1935 hurricane. The railroads were then turned to highways, and the finished highway officially opened on March 29, 1938.

While driving through the 113-mile highway (U.S. Route 1) you will be able to enjoy the turquoise sea, cross the Seven Mile Bridge, and witness old railroad bridges’ remnants, as well as exotic animals, and coral reefs. If you’ve seen the True Lies movie, you might as well pretend to be taking part in the movie, as some parts of the highway are in some action scenes in the movie. (We have some suggestions for good movies you might want to see, check them out here.)

 

2 – Route 12, Utah

 

Do you ever have a feeling of virtually transporting yourself in a different place far away? Well, Utah’s Highway 12 is a perfect place to do so if you don’t get the chance to actually drive down there. If you do get the chance though, during the 124-mile trip you will be able to pass through lovely small towns, forested mountains, the red canyons of Grand Staircase-Escalante and the Bryce Canyon National Park.

 

3 – Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia – North Carolina

Established on June 30, 1936, the Blue Ridge Parkway is a National Parkway, popular for its beautiful autumn colors. The 469-mile road, originally built for Appalachian Mountains travelers, spans through Virginia and North Carolina and passes through the Blue Ridge mountain chain, the Great Smoky Mountains and Shenandoah national parks. I would suggest you to take your time if you go that way and do some hiking while enjoying the white waterfalls, lovely oak trees, and blooming Wildflowers.

 

4 – Going to the Sun Road, Montana

This 52-mile road, a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, goes through Glacier National Park in Montana, crosses the Continental Divide in the Rockies and passes through Jackson Glacier Overlook where you can easily see glacial lakes and valleys. The good news is that there are plenty of places to pull over, enjoy the view, and take some pictures. And there is a bad news of course – due to heavy snows during the winter, Going to the Sun Road is open only from May to October, so keep this in mind before you make any plans.

 

5 – Pacific Coast Highway, California

Yet another road that feels like heading to fairyland. The Pacific Coast Highway (route 1), is not only one of the most scenic routes in the US, but in the entire world. The 332-mile highway passes through the Pebble Beach, Big Sur, Monterey Bay, Sonoma County, etc. If you want to fully enjoy the road, avoid passing there in the winter as it gets very dangerous, and during the months of July and August because that’s when the Highway 1 has the most traffic.

 

6 – US Route 66, Chicago – California

In case you’ve heard Chuck Berry’s Route 66 song, you most probably know some information about the Main Street of America or also known as Mother Road. Historic US Route 66, designed on November 11, 1926, connects Chicago with Santa Monica. Covering a total of 2,448 mile, the trip can be quite long, so if you plan on driving down this road, you need to plan in advance and be ready to take at least 2 weeks off from work.

 

7 – Highway 2, Nebraska

 

According to Wikipedia, Nebraska Highway 2 is a discontinuous highway with 2 segments. “The western segment begins at the South Dakota border northwest of Crawford and ends southeast of Grand Island at an intersection with Interstate 80. The eastern segment begins in Lincoln and ends at the Iowa border at Nebraska City.” During this over 200- mile road you will be able to see plenty of sand hills, farmlands and The Great Plains.

 

8 – Route 6, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Route 6, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

I will never forgive myself for having been two summers in a row in Martha’s Vineyard, and never visiting Provincetown. Especially now that I know this beautiful 117-mile route which goes through sand dunes, forests, cute little houses, beaches, and fishing towns, ends up at the Provincetown harbor. Are you reading this and are located near Massachusetts? Please don’t miss this route and pay a visit to Provincetown for me as well.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
