    2013-07-10

    Road trips have long been a staple of United States travel. There are so many good drives across the country that it can be hard to decide what path to start down. Whether you're looking for a route that brings you through the heart of Americana and historic landmarks or to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country, there's a drive for you. If you're planning on gassing up the car and heading out on a drive, there are a few classic routes that will appeal to nearly everyone.

    Route 1 - Maine
    New England is not lacking when it comes to breathtaking coastal views, and that is certainly the case along Route 1 in Maine. The scenery along this stretch of road is truly magnificent and seems like it was pulled straight form a post card. There are many highlights along the way including the stretch of road between Danforth and Orient. There are also some landmarks you can stop at during your journey, such as the famous Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth.

    Lookout Mountain Parkway - Alabama to Tennessee
    The South has plenty of good drives that bring you through the lush landscape of Dixieland, and the Lookout Mountain Parkway is no exception. In particular, the 93-mile journey features everything from canyons to waterfalls. Among its most compelling views is that of Little River Canyon. During this section of the drive, the road nestles right against a steep drop - some of the steepest East of the Mississippi River.

    Badlands Loops Scenic Byway
    The Badlands are undoubtedly a highlight of South Dakota, and driving through the iconic national park can leave a long lasting impression. There are few places in the U.S. that are quite like the Badlands, with its dramatic stone formations creating a majestic atmosphere that's hard to find elsewhere. There are plenty of places along this approximately 30-mile stretch of road where you can admire the natural appeal of America's Midwest. The drive, which only takes about an hour to complete, also offers you the opportunity to catch a glimpse of many famous animals that live in the area including prairies dogs, bighorn sheep, bald eagles and black-footed ferrets, among many others.
