Top Road Trips in the US

Ready to hit the road, but not sure where to go? Check out these four road trip destinations – across the country and in our own backyard!

  • • Drive Coast-to-Coast along I-90. The highway stretches from Boston to Seattle for a cross country trip along the longest interstate in the U.S.
  • • Head to New Mexico to drive Route 66. Make sure to cover the stretch of the singing road. Rumble strips on highway I-40 (also known as the “Mother Road”) send vibrations that buzz to the tune America the Beautiful.
  • • Grand Junction, Colorado offers the perfect starting point for the Dinosaur Diamond Scenic Byway. The loop circles through Utah and Colorado for the best dinosaur sites, including Dinosaur National Monument.
  • • Escape election season with a trip down Florida’s Presidential Trail. Starting in Pensacola, you can see historic sites and nods to former presidents Andrew Jackson and Warren G. Harding.
