If you love driving, then a trip to the US could prove to be one of the best experiences of your life. Driving is fun but going down the same motorway day after day can get a bit boring. Why not therefore cross the pond and go on a driving holiday in the US? This article will look at the top five driving roads in that massive country, get ready for one hell of a drive.

Finding your way around the country, particularly if it’s your first visit might not be too easy. If that is the case, you don’t want your holiday to become ‘Lost in the US’ so it’s important to get a GPS for your car. These car GPS will help you make your way around the country without the possibility of getting lost and will help with avoiding issues such as speed traps.

Pacific Coast Highway

Just the title sounds exciting and you just won’t believe the views of the delightful Pacific Coast that you will see along the way.  There truly are some great sights to see in California as you drive from San Diego to San Francisco. That GPS you’ll have purchased will be put to good use on this part of your journey which is a marathon 655 miles. There are so many highlights awaiting you on your trip. Go along the Golden Gate Bridge and head to places such as Alcatraz Island or go on one of the world famous San Francisco trams.

Tail of the Dragon

Even the title sounds exciting doesn’t it? It’s not anything to do with ‘Game of Thrones’  but you will need to be brave. This is in Winconsin and only 11 miles long but it contains an unbelievable 318 turns. That’s because it takes you along the North Carolina and Tennessee mountains with outstanding views to behold.

Blue Ridge Parkway

The US may have some massive cities full of skyscrapers but a drive around the country will see you taking in some fantastic scenery. That’s definitely the case here as you travel 469 miles from The Great Smoky Mountain National Park to the Shenandoah National Park. There’s plenty of wildlife to see and tourist attractions along the way include Asheville’s Wicked Weed Brewery.
