Summer is a great time to hit the highway and explore parts of the country that you’ve always wanted to see. If you’ve got an itch for adventure than needs scratched, consider checking out these three great summer road trip ideas.
Alaska is stunning any time of year, but summer is a particularly popular time thanks to the beautiful scenery and the long days. If you’re looking for the ultimate long-distance road trip, you can make your way up to British Columbia to hop on the Alaska Highway, which stretches for 1,459 miles all the way to Fairbanks.
Blue Ridge Parkway
This 469-mile drive is more accessible to those of us living in the south, and easy to enjoy in small sections. This gorgeous road runs from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, passing by historical sights and stunning scenery and hikes along the way.
Charleston to New Orleans
For a Southern-centered road trip, adventurers can drive from Charleston to New Orleans or vice versa. In addition to the beach town of Charleston, South Carolina, and the one-of-a-kind Big Easy, the trip will pass through the charming Savannah, Georgia, and the bustling metropolis of Atlanta.
These are just some of the many road trip opportunities available to you this summer. If you need a new vehicle to go exploring in, consider our selection at Blackburn CDJR.
