Top US Coastal Road Trips

Seaside or mountain love?
Whichever side you prefer, we are here to give you the best ideas and make your holidays unbeatable. This year, we prefer to travel back in time and remind ourselves the hottest pastimes in the ’80s. As expected, coastal road trips remained a must on every traveler’s bucket list. Explore this summer the most scenic-secret places in the American territory!

Here is the list of the top breathtaking itineraries and places to see in USA:

1. Coastal Road Trip – Overseas Highway:
Tropical drive from Miami beach to Key West

Florida’s Overseas Highway connects the world’s most popular american vacation spot, Miami,  to the most southern location of US, the island of Key West. During your 4-hour-drive along the route, you can watch numerable coral and small limestone islands, so we advice you to take your time and enjoy sightseeing or swimming.

*Beware of the 7-Mile-Bridge, you  may feel like you are flying over the water!

Purple Travel Vituozos tip: Take a stop at Tavernier, so you can have access to the Conch Reef which is ideal for snorkeling lovers!

2. Coastal Road Trip – Pacific Coast Highway:
From California to San Diego

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or an unusual eco-friendly escape the Pacific Coast Highway is perfect  for you! It is known as one of the best scenic drives worldwide and it’s easy to see why! Cliff-hugging all the way,  you feel that the California coast enliven your senses to the full extent. Detour to the city of surprises – San Francisco and get through the alluring coastal towns like Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, the exotic Malibu and ”the city of angels”, the glamorous L.A…

Purple Travel Vituozos tipAt Monterey Bay take a visit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium,  then drive along the scenic ”17 Mile” and enjoy the beautiful seaside village Carmel-by-the-Sea. After the next uphill to the Big Sur, don’t forget to take a picture of the Bixby Bridge, the tallest single span  bridges worldwide! to take a photo of the Bixby Bridge, one of the tallest concrete bridges in the world.

3. Coastal Road Trip – ROUTE 66:
From Chicago & Illinois to Los Angeles

Here is better to do as the songs says ” “get your kicks on Route 66.” The ”Route 66” captivates the romantic souls until today. The truth is that, no other highway, in the world, has inspired so many classic rock songs, storytellers and  legendary poems.  The 2,200-mile-long, running from the high-tech city -known for its’ one-and-only urban design- Chicago, to the ”seaside dreaming”-the city of California, may surprise you, as well as your long-lasting excitement!

Purple Travel Vituozos tip: The awe-inspiring Meramec Caves, near the town of  Missouri, cannot be missed. The cross-section of American sceneries, from Illinois, all the way to the sunny L.A, the Grand Canyon, as well as the sandy streets of St. Louis.

Cheers to american adventures!
