The California Coast, Route 66, America’s Canyonlands, scenic New England and America’s music trail  – these are some of the best American road trips. Which one is your favourite? 

 

What I love about these American road trips is that you are completely free to explore as you wish. You can go off the beaten track, dine where you like, yet still have the peace of mind of having hotels pre-booked and an itinerary mapped out for you. Believe me you don’t want to waste valuable vacation time searching for motels every night. You can manage to see ALL the places on your ‘list’ with these classic self drive itineraries!

I have teamed up with American Sky who offer a wide selection of self drive holidays and city breaks to America and Canada. I have chosen five of my favourite American road trips, that take in some of America’s most remarkable cities and National Parks. American Sky have many more on their website and can tailor make any trip to suit you, so if you fancy a trip to Chicago instead of California or New Mexico instead of New Orleans, talk to the team in American Sky and they will design the perfect itinerary for you.
