Ocean Drive – Newport, RI

Highway 143 – TN
Take a trip to visit Tennessee and enjoy the world’s longest uninterrupted grassy heaths accompanied by purple rhododendron blossoms. The best time to take this drive is early in the summer. But any season would be appropriate to drive down Highway 143. From the seasonal leaves, snow, blooming flowers and vibrant green grass, this scenic route will not disappoint.
Great River Road – Mississippi
Known to be the best scenic drive in America, the Great River Road follows the course of the Mississippi River for 3,000 miles passing through 10 states. This road has many points to enter and exit so go and enjoy the beautiful view.
Going to the Sun Road – Montana
Going-to-the-Sun Road is the only road that crosses Glacier National Park in Montana. Without stopping, the trip is usually around two hours. However, you should definitely watch out for the narrow, windy roads in your truck. This might be one to save for a family vacation.
