Summertime means road-trip time. One-of-a-kind drives, offering jaw-dropping views out the windshield, show off distinctive regions of the United States at their best. Some routes are short (you can do them in a day), while the more grand ones require a long weekend or more.

Pile the family into the car and pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at an unhurried pace. You’ll want to make time to breathe in the fresh air and create your own memories. Stay on the lookout for wild animals and blooming flowers along these roads—they’re part of the scenery. Read on for 10 of our favorite iconic drives.
