Adventure Awaits On These Four Scenic American Roads
Being able to drive is absolutely worth the hassle and stress of obtaining your license. Take drivers training, enroll in beginner driving school, and learn to drive as soon as legally possible because the entire world is waiting for you! If the independence and personal freedom weren’t enough to get your gears in motion, check out these four gorgeous driving roads the U.S. has to offer.
Hells Canyon Road, Idaho: Don’t let the name fool you, this 44 mile road is a little slice of heaven. Starting just across the river in Oregon, the journey winds and undulates along Snake River all the way to the Hells Canyon Dam. The scenic Byway gives breathtaking views of the canyon, hugging the jagged walls and reminding you just way you got your license in the first place. Only park service vehicles are allowed past the dam, so you’ll have to turn around and make the trip back, but it’s the best road to nowhere you’ll ever be on.
Route 9W to Storm King Highway, New York: Just a short trip outside of Manhattan, this trip only lasts a brief 11 miles — but oh, the wonders you’ll see. Route 9W meanders its way through Bear Mountain State Park, but the true surprise comes at the Storm King Highway exit; before long, you’ll be driving along the Palisades with a cliffside drive boasting stunning views 1,000 feet over the Hudson River.
M119, Harbor Springs, Michigan: Officially nicknamed the Tunnel of Trees, this 24 mile road follows the curve of lake Michigan, and is green all the way. Covered by a peaceful canopy of trees and foliage, this twisting, winding road will remind you that you don’t always need an elevated road to see something spectacular.
Route 82 from Twin Lakes to Aspen, Colorado: The Colorado Rockies are well-known for their evergreen forests and snow-capped mountains, both of which can be seen along this 37 mile excursion. Wind along the steep cliffs and put a little thrill back in your driving experience, but make sure to go during the summer — this road is closed for safety during the colder months.
Traffic lessons and drivers training are nothing compared to the beauty you’ll see on a cross country, scenic road trip. Stop making excuses and join the 214 million licensed drivers already on the road today, or you’ll never know what kind of adventure you could be missing out on!
