A road trip is an ideal opportunity for adventure - a time to stray from your usual path, discover new places and visit some of the country's lesser-known treasures. With that in mind, Bridgestone/Firestone has compiled some of America's most beautiful drives in an online resource for travelers.
The "America's Legendary Drives" link on www.fire stone.com is a directory containing 100 Scenic roads in the United States and interesting sights to see along each one.
"This selection of roadways is perfect for travelers who like to dally in towns and locations that other roadways bypass or that have simply been forgotten," said Bob Kocher, automotive and travel writer who was part of the team that selected the featured roadways for Bridgestone/Firestone's compilation.
The link features both long and short drives, grouped by state. Each listing includes total mileage from start to finish, a narrative describing points of interest (such as parks, museums and monuments) and "must-eat" restaurant recommendations.
Whether you are planning a week-long getaway or a short day trip, this resource - launched at the height of the summer travel season - can be used anytime for planning an unforgettable driving vacation.
