Our journeys have taken us from Key West to Maine, from New York to California, from Arizona to Oregon, and Texas to British Columbia in Canada. And many byways and back roads in between!

We've driven U.S. Highway 1 up the Florida coast from Key West, and the Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles to Oregon. We enjoyed the serentity of the Loneliest Road in America across U.S. 50 in Nevada, and the twists and curves of the Beartooth Highway in Montana and Wyoming.

Who can forget the majestic beauty of the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park, and the breathtaking vistas on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountains NP. Spring and fall make great road trips along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Natchez Trace.

It's hard to pick the best, the most scenic, the one with the least traffic, or the most historic ... but on this site we present some of our personal favorites. They might be the perfect road trip for you. Visit again as we add more trips!

Let's take another road trip soon!
