The Most Exciting Road Trips For Car Enthusiasts This Summer

The summer is heating up, and many travel and car enthusiasts eagerly await their summer road trip. What if you don't have a road trip planned but want to join in on the fun? We have you covered on the hottest stops that people love to travel to during the summer!


Road trips are so much fun. We love building the perfect playlist, planning all our stops (and choosing to go somewhere else if the mood strikes us), getting meals and snacks packed, and stopping to see all of the wonderful bits of Americana we ignore when we drive by at 75 miles an hour.

Our Recommendations For The Best Road Trip Ever!

The continental U.S. has endless charms for those who love a good road trip. Here are some dream destinations, if you have the time this summer (and the wanderlust):


California's Pacific Coast Highway

California's most extended highway is a beautiful stretch of road. Whether traveling north to south or south to north, the beautiful Pacific coastline is full of places to stop and get lost for awhile. The highlights include Malibu, San Luis Obispo, Big Sur, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Mendocino Headlands.

San Juan Skyway Scenic Byway, Colorado

This is a fun road trip if you want to step back in time and visit some of Colorado's historic mining towns. While taking on this road trip, make sure you take full advantage of Mesa Verde National Park!

U.S. 1, Florida Keys

Travelers who embark on this road trip can expect to enter a paradise of beach bars and water sports. Your journey from Key Largo to Key West will have you in shock as the overseas highway gives you a scenic view of the ocean. The 7-mile bridge is one of the longest bridges in the world. And don’t miss Coral Castle!

Highway 101, Oregon

Ever wanted to visit Oregon? Visit the preserved unobstructed natural views along the 300 miles of beaches off Highway 101. We recommend pulling over when you see the roadside dinosaurs at the Prehistoric Gardens! 

Don’t Forget to Check In Before You Travel! 

When you’re going on a long road trip, you want your car to be in the best shape possible. Have you been overlooking a squeal in your brakes for weeks, or months? Is there a vibration or a shudder when you stop? Does your car pull to one side or the other when you stop? Is there a ‘spongy’ feeling in the pedal? These are the kind of things you don’t ignore before you travel miles from home!
