Where to go on a Road Trip
« on: February 15, 2018, 01:58:48 PM »
Well this is a few years out for me, but I have been trying to image where I would like to travel on a long road trip.

I am from Michigan so circling the lakes is always a good option.
But I have really had the desire to make it to Oregon or Washington State.

Do any of you have road trip suggestions with a classic car.

Take U.S. Hwy 2 across the top of the United States.

My wife and I did the Pacific Coast highway from San Fran to Seattle. It was the best road trip I have done to date. So many jaw dropping views along the coast and just when you get a little bored of the great views you come into the redwood forest. Just an incredible trip. We few out from NY and rented a car. Drove to Seattle and flew back from there. The drive was about 900 miles.

My wife and I spent a week each summer (over 10 years)  traveling parts of Route 66 until we had traveled the entire route.  Some sections several times that were our favorites.  Perhaps sometime in the future we will do it again as it was one of the best trips we ever made in our lives.

As a child we drove from Seattle to San Deigo.  A trip I won't forget 53 years later! A new blue 1964 Buick Wildcat.

I just did a big road trip across the US and my favourite bits were (it was all good BTW) LA to Seattle via Redwoods. Spectacular.
Route 66 (or what is left of it)
South Dakota and Wyoming (Deadwood, Cody etc..) If you love cowboy stuff.
I loved my road trip and if you can take the time to avoid freeways then it is the best way to see America.
Space centre near Houston and the Boeing factory near Seattle are amazing.
Also if you are anywhere near Yellowstone or Yosemite its a must see.
Dont drive through the middle of Manhattan... i did and it was not fun. lol.

I am fortunate to live in a really scenic area of Western Canada with all kinds of nice drives available. The thing is, you will likely have to travel a long way to get here. If you are coming up from the states though, your dollar is strong against ours right now so there is that.
