The best road trips I've been on (so far) have been the Trans Canada from Toronto to Vancouver, and the Pacific Coast Highway in Cali all the way down to Tijuana, which were both amazingly memorable.

Some of the best N.A. routes are said to be;

1. Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Lake Louise, Canada

2. California North Coast,

3. Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

4. Stowe to Smuggler's Notch, Vermont


Long or short, a road trip is always a great way to relax, unwind and stop wherever, whenever! Have you been on any of these routes? Like to go? Or do you know of another fabulous road trippin' routes to suggest?

Old Route 66 through New Mexico and Arizona


Lately Route 66 keeps coming up! I've had so many conversations about it and heard so many good things it's now on the agenda (tho there's no real, official agenda, it's still on there).
