Five Favorite Road Trips

Happy Friday y’all! <-- we say "y'all" in the South. It's another edition of the Friday Five and we're discussing 5 trips to take. Over my life, I have been lucky enough to travel quite a bit. So today I'm sharing five of my favorite road trips. Road trips have always been a lot of fun for me. I have been on road trips in shiny new sports cars as well as more traditional used cars, so I do think of myself as something of an expert. Ultimately, no matter what car you end up using, you are always going to have fun tearing up the roads with your family and friends. Have you got any road trips planned? Some friends of ours are heading on a road trip around Iceland soon. Iceland is an amazing place to explore in a car, so they have decided to hire a rental car from a rental company similar to Cars Iceland. I cannot wait to hear all about their trip to Iceland! Anyway, make sure to link up with your friends for this blogging theme. I’ve been linking up with Cynthia, Mar and Courtney for quite a bit and they always provide an excellent count of quality content. You should definitely go check them out if you haven’t already. Just a reminder for anyone that’s planning to go on a road trip, make sure you check everything is fully functional on your car. Also, make sure that you know a place that has a tow truck Lynchburg which can pick you up, should you break down.

Fave Road Trips

  • Pacific Coast Highway – I don’t think a better road trip exists. San Francisco down to San Diego. Not only will you drive through the most spectacular vista points in Big Sur, but you’ll be cruising through some of the loveliest towns and counties in California. Travel through beach towns, elegant coastal counties, lively Los Angeles, and spectacular wine county. Give yourselves at least 10 days to enjoy all this route has to offer.
  • Miami to Key West – I’ve driven this route dozens of times and even ran it once during a Ragnar Relay. This drive will take you South down US highway 1 to see some of the best ocean views, with the sun shining in your rearview mirror. Make sure to take advantage of the pit stops along the way to soak in the laid-back atmosphere and the delicious seafood cuisine. This trip will take you about a day with stopping, only 4 hours straight through.
  • Vegas, NV to Sedona, AZ – Gorgeous desert scenery with beautiful red rocks formations will surround you as you make your way past stops such as The Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. Sedona is one of the most spectacular places out West. There are dirt roads that lead up through the canyons that you just cannot miss. Give yourselves a couple days and make it a camping excursion.
  • Denver to Grand Junction, CO – The Rocky Mountains….. ‘Nuff said A day for this trip is all that’s necessary.
  • Mobile to New Orleans- From bayous to beaches and everything in between. The beautiful beaches of the Redneck Riviera are quite the draw. I have made this trip a few times on my way to NOLA for a few certain festivals. It never disappoints.

What’s one of your most memorable road trips?

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. I'm Haley. I’m a digital marketer & social media strategist, a running coach, compulsive movie quoter, wannabe photographer, Capricorn, and a slightly sarcastic, ultra chatty extrovert living in Tampa with my awesome family.

It’s rarely worth reading, but I like to put it out there anyways.

  1. Of all your trips, the one from Vegas to Sedona is the one I would like to do. I have been fortunate to travel to every continent, but have yet to see most of the US. That needs to change!

  2. My brother in law and I want to run Big Sur together next year – it’d be my first time running that race and it’s all about the views for me! We took road trips all the time when I was younger and I still very much enjoy them!

  3. Driving through Arizona is just gorgeous! It’s one of my favorite trips. I’d love to run the Keys Ragnar one day for sure!

    • I’m not a fan of that part of the drive either. Do you remember the “Patience is a virtue” signs? Now there’s a ferry that you can catch in Ft. Myers that takes your straight to Key West. I haven’t taken it yet, but it’s very tempting.

  4. I’ve done the Miami to Key West trip countless times. It can be a pretty arduous drive, especially if you just want to get there!

    Another one to add to the list is the Road to Hana. That’s just a treasure trove of waterfalls and hidden gems.

    • I bet that one is fantastic. I have never been to Hawaii, but here’s hoping one day I can see it first hand. I’d love to go for a second honeymoon.
