Summer road trip season is just around the corner. These top road trip destinations have a lot to offer, including unique glimpses into the history of the region, breathtaking natural sights and the promise of relaxation.
Now’s the time to start planning for a summer getaway. Get the lowdown on some vacation destinations, tips for finding accommodation and suggestions of must-see attractions.
There’s a good reason a drive along Highway 1 is among the most popular road trip destinations — nothing quite compares to the beauty of coastal California. The beauty of a trip along the western coast is an endless possibility of stops. Fly into any major city, rent a comfortable car and begin a slow drive up or down the coast.
Some of the best attractions along the coast include Big Sur, Muir Woods and the historic Point Loma Lighthouse. Vacation rental services like Airbnb and VRBO simplify finding quiet and cozy accommodations in any location.
South Dakota’s Badlands
Famous for breathtaking rock formations, Badlands National Park in South Dakota is a great “bucket list” destination. Wildlife, hikes appropriate for all fitness levels, and natural history are all convincing reasons to add this location to your summer itinerary.
Badlands Cedar Pass Lodge offers ADA accessible cabins or the choice to reserve a spot for RV and tent camping. Don’t miss a chance for the kids and grandkids to learn about the park’s history with the Badlands Park Ranger Program.
Known as a “Forever Wild” area, Adirondack Park was declared a constitutionally protected park in 1892, largely because of concerns about deforestation. Today, this park offers 6 million acres of forest, mountains and lakes.
Outside of taking in natural beauty, visitors to Adirondack Park can engage in canoeing, birding, golfing and more. With camping, hotels, and bed-and-breakfasts galore, finding accommodation should be simple. The Lamplight Inn, for example, is one of the most recommended bed-and-breakfasts in the region.
Located in the panhandle of Florida, 30A is sprinkled with beach towns known for their family-friendly appeal. Many of the homes along the coast are available as vacation rentals and can be booked through property managers like 30A Escapes.
The hardest task? Deciding which beautiful beach community to choose. Rosemary Beach is known for romance while Dune Allen provides a quiet getaway and Seaside is fun and family friendly.
The right vacation destination can offer a lot of fun and relaxation. These four road trip ideas, located in different regions of the United States, should fit the bill.
