With over four million miles of highway, the USA offers more road trips than anyone could tackle in one lifetime. Whether you’re itching to peek into Wild West history, or just longing for a big ol’ soulful dose of nature’s vistas, you’ll find them along America’s backroads and byways. Here are our top 10 favorite drives: what are yours?

1. Route 66: Get your kicks on the USA’s ‘Mother Road’, a ribbon of concrete stretching from Chicago to LA. Take snapshots of retro roadside relics, stuff yourself silly at mom-and-pop diners and snooze in 1950s motor courts.

2. Pacific Coast Highway: Curve alongside the ocean on California’s Hwys 1 and 101 past SoCal’s celebrity enclaves and golden beaches, over San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and north into misty coast redwood forests.

3. Blue Ridge Parkway: Cruise the Appalachian Mountains on this historic route, with its rustic wooden-cabin hideaways and bluegrass music joints, while soaking up glorious sunsets.
