Road trips are a fun way to get away from the stress of everyday life, as well as a great way to spend some quality time with family and friends, which is why I recommend going on at least one road trip in your lifetime.

If you’re in the United States and are interested in taking a road trip, there are plenty of places you can go/visit, but we have put together a list of the top 5 road trip ideas for you to make it easier to pick a destination for your road trip.

5. Overseas Highway, Florida

If you are travelling through Florida, this 120-mile route that connects the Florida Keys is a fun route to take. The first part of the highway from the Florida mainland to Key Largo is a little underwhelming, but once you get to Key Largo, it is a very beautiful scenery.

You will be driving across the Atlantic Ocean for a few hours and you will feel like you are floating on the water. It is also where the final action scene in the movie “True Lies” was filmed, so if you have seen the movie, you know exactly how beautiful the ocean looks from the bridge.

If you take this route, be sure to take a break and go swimming with the dolphins at the Theater of the Sea in Islamorada.

4. Pacific Coast Highway- Route 1

The PCH takes you through Oregon, California, and Washington, and provides you with beautiful mountain scenery, as well as a great view of the Pacific Ocean. Route 1 is over 123 miles long, so be prepared for a long drive, and make sure you are careful on the roads because of sharp turns, mud slides, and detours.

If you’re into golf, be sure to check out the famous Pebble Beach golf course.

3. Beartooth Highway

This highway has been called the most beautiful highway in America by quite a few people, and you won’t get an argument from us because the views from this highway are for lack of a better word, spectacular. You will get to see a lot of mountains and Yellowstone Park while driving through this highway. You should also be aware that at some point, the highway is just a little under 11,000 above sea level.

2. Route 6. Cape Cod

This is a 117 mile route that takes you through Cape Cod. You will get to see saltbox homes in colonial villages, forests, tidal ponds, and of course, the Provincetown harbor. You will also get a great view of the beach, so feel free to take a break and enjoy some lobster while you’re there.

1. Million Dollar Highway, Colorado

You can’t talk about going on a road trip without mentioning the Million Dollar highway, which runs from Silverton to Ouray, Colorado. While on the highway, you will pass through two historical mining cities and enjoy some breathtaking views.

Summer is here, which means it is time to get out of the house and take a vacation with your family or friends. With so many places to go, picking a destination can be a bit difficult, which is why we have created a list of the best places to visit.

#4. Europe.

Summer is the best time to take a trip to Europe because the weather is beautiful at this time of the year and there’s usually a lot of things to do. You can go backpacking across the continent, visiting quaint towns and villages you’ve never been to. You can also visit some of the popular destinations like London, Amsterdam, Rome, or Paris. Since the Euro 2016 tournament is going on in France this summer, you can take in a few games if you are a sports fan.

#3. Victoria, Australia.

Summertime usually isn’t associated with winter sports, but if you are in the mood to do some skiing, Victoria is the place to be. Since this is a ski town, there are plenty of resorts that offer a wide array of winter sports that you can do with your friends and family. You can go on dogsled rides, snowboarding, skiing, tobogganing, and snowmobiling.

If you’re new to skiing, you don’t have much to worry about because the Mountain Baw Baw resort is designed for beginners and are relatively safe. More experienced skiers will enjoy the Mount Hotham resort or the Falls Creek resort, which is the largest alpine resort in Victoria.

#2. Greece.

Due to the current economic downturn in Greece, planning a vacation there is very affordable, which is great for people that want to visit the country. Greece offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the world as well as some of the world’s finest cuisine. If you want to enjoy a Greek vacation, Folegandros is the place to go because you get to enjoy spending time on the beaches without having to deal with tourist crowds.

#1. Dubai.

If you are into extravagance, there is really no place like Dubai. There are so many things to see and do in Dubai that makes the city a lot of fun to visit. The architecture in Dubai is amazing, the city is the home of the Burj Khalifa, which is the world’s tallest building.

The Dubai Fountain and the Dubai Aquarium are also destinations that you must visit. If you ever get tired of shopping and sightseeing, you can always cool down in the ski resort located inside the Mall of the Emirates.
