Enjoy family time traversing the territories of the United States. Escape the close quarters of the trip with some amazing open space with a few stops in top scenic drives through U.S. National Parks.

 

Denali National Park

Deep in the heart of Denali National Park, visitors can drive via tour bus while vying for a chance to see Alaska’s big game. The expansive park doesn’t allow cars past mile 15, but shuttles and hop-on, hop-off tours take visitors through miles of natural beauty for an effortless and beautiful ride.

 

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

With more than 100 miles of trails, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park can be hiked or biked for days on end. Enjoy scenic views of the Kilauea Crater and the ocean in the distance on a scenic drive through the national park. The crater-lined road leads passengers to immersive views of sulfur banks, lava and less-active volcanoes.

 

Joshua Tree National Park

The unique and rugged landscape of Joshua Tree National Park stretches for more than 110 miles. The expansive desert offers a diverse desert habitat complete with wildlife and panoramic views all from the seat of a car. A scenic drive through Joshua Tree keeps travelers comfortable in the desert heat. The road through the park often sees light traffic and is easily accessed year-round. The drive is shared with bicycles and fellow visitors.

 

Olympic National Park

Stretch your legs and head out for a hike in Olympic National Park in Port Angeles, Wash. Located in the Pacific Northwest, the park’s 70 miles of diverse landscape boast incredible hiking trails through rainforests, glacier-clad summits, lush forests and peaks. Stay the night and set up camp or opt for the park’s various rustic cabins, lodges and resort options.

 

Glacier National Park

Driving through Montana? Don’t forget to stop in Glacier National Park for unending wildlife sightings, remarkable vistas and outdoor activities. Take the scenic route through the park’s drivable routes or get out on some of the 700 miles of hiking trails providing incredible views of the glacier-carved peaks extending to the Canadian boarder.
