We’ve been taking road trips in the USA since 2004 before we had kids, and for the past 4 years in-depth with our kids, including a 10 month RV trip across the Western part of the USA. 

Grand Circle Road Trip, Southwest USA

The Grand Circle Road Trip is one of the most famous National Parks road trips in the USA. It’s where most people will focus there time when exploring the American Southwest. Expect a kaleidoscope of colors, rock formations, canyons, buttes, mesas, arches, and fairy tale kingdoms.

Mountains National Parks (CO, WY, MT)

The Rocky Mountains National Park is the perfect place to start your exploration of this mountain range that goes all the way into Canada. We loved the many hikes we did in this national park and seeing the source of the mighty Colorado River was amazing.

Road to Hana, Hawaii

The road starts in Paia and is embedded on the side of the high jungle cliffs plunging into the sea revealing panoramic Pacific Ocean views, bamboo jungle and Norfolk pines, sacred waterfalls and swimming holes, lava tubes, tropical flowers and roadside food stands. 

New England Road Trip in the Fall

Think scenic drives and hikes amongst maples, alder, and birch trees bursting with vibrant hues of ruby, gold and amber; exploring charming New England towns; picking apples on a crisp Fall day; and cozying up beside a crackling fire with hot cider or a glass of red. 

Florida Keys and the Overseas Highway

Hop island to island via bridges of the crystal clear waters of the Florida Keys. It’s an American road trip to remember and also makes our best USA scenic drives list. The entire Overseas Highway carries US. Route 1 through the Florida Keys to Key West.

Cascade Loop Road Trip, Washington

Touted as Washington State’s Ultimate Road Trip, the Cascades Loop encompasses pristine mountains, grand rivers, picturesque islands, and rolling river valleys.
