A classic Californian road-trip is a classic for a reason, who wouldn’t want to drive down America’s southwest coast with the Pacific Ocean on one side and iconic cities like Los Angeles on the other?
Wine lovers can discover the state’s famous vineyards en-route. The California Ocean Drive from San Francisco to Sand Diego is a perfect itinerary for first-time US road-trippers.
However, if you’ve fallen in love with cruising the great American highways and you’re coming back for more, Kuoni has some fantastic alternative routes that’ll have you aching to get back behind the wheel and out on the open road.
So-Cal & Arizona Desert Drive
Why not pick up where you left off and start your next road-trip in sunny San Diego for a desert adventure across Southern California and Arizona. From the Pacific Coast beaches and So-Cal lifestyle of San Diego, take in the Coachella Valley oasis of Palm Springs before exploring the otherworldly landscapes and unique cities of Arizona. Discover the historic charm of Flagstaff, bask in the scenic beauty of Sedona and end your journey relaxing in the renowned spas of upmarket Scottsdale.
Music Roots in the Deep South
Like things a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll? Head down to the Deep South to explore the musical ancestry of cities like Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. Cross through Tennessee and Mississippi before ending your journey in Louisiana – even the names of these Southern states are richly evocative. Visit the home of Elvis, cruise the Mississippi Delta and tuck into Cajun and Creole cuisine as you explore the unique charms and diverse music roots of America’s Deep South.
The Seven-State Rocky Mountain Self-Drive
Maybe you prefer the splendour of nature to the glamour of the music world. Well, Mother Nature doesn’t get much more magnificent than the Rocky Mountains and, as epic road-trips go, this two-week, seven-state journey is up there with the best. Drive from Denver, Colorado to Salt Lake City, Utah and visit some of the Mid-West’s most famous landmarks. Including Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park.
