We recently spent a Summer housesitting in New Hampshire and absolutely fell in love with the White Mountain National Forest. Located in the northern portion of NH, the White Mountains make for a great day trip or a lovely weekend getaway. It has all of the elements that make for a perfect rambling road trip: beautiful landscapes, great road conditions, and lovely little towns chock full of character and charm. We’ve put together this road trip planner for the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire to help you plan your own perfect getaway!
When it’s your stated mission to go out and seek new and interesting adventures, it can be hard to return to certain places. It’s not because you didn’t enjoy it on your first visit, but rather because you enjoyed it so much that you’re afraid a second visit might reveal it as one-dimensional or heck, kind of bland. Well I’m happy to report that after a second visit to Rapid City, South Dakota we can officially say that it’s definitely not bland! As a matter of fact, we enjoyed it so much we’ve put together a Ramblin’ Guide to Rapid City, South Dakota so you too can explore everything from regal Mount Rushmore to the breathtaking Badlands and all the great stuff in between.
The winding mountain passes and back country roads make West Virginia a perfect location to plan a scenic road trip. Whether you plan to tour through West Virginia on a motorcycle, car, or RV, you can spend days exploring the beautiful countryside as well as taking in some really neat cultural and historical sites. We spent some time based out of Snowshoe, WV and Pocahontas County and have put together this road trip planner for West Virginia scenic drives that is sure to satisfy your wanderlust.
What do crisp mountain air, incredible vistas, and winding roads all have in common? There’s one place in America that will give you all three in plentiful abundance: The Blue Ridge Parkway. We’ve driven the entire road from end to end as well as it’s smaller sister road, Skyline Drive, and are happy to report that everything that has been said about this road is true. It’s a road trip you and your family will never forget. Check out our Road Trip Planner for the Blue Ridge Parkway & Skyline Drive for every thing you’ll ever need to know about planning this epic getaway.
If you’re planning on taking a drive to Alaska there are only a couple direct driving routes that will take you there. You can either drive the Cassiar Highway, which is a small mostly rural route, or drive the Alaska Canada Highway (aka the Al-Can), which is a slightly larger, slightly less rural route. :-) No matter which way you go you’ll be guaranteed two things: several days of non-stop driving, and miles of wide open spaces. Since we had the opportunity to make the drive last fall we decided to put together this handy dandy guide and road trip planner for driving the Alaska-Canada Highway.
