2.) Skyline Drive

Skyline Drive runs north and south for a distance of 105 miles along the summits of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western Virginia. It makes up a part of the popular Blue Ridge Parkway, the ultimate East Coast road trip.

The trek is a beautiful USA drive with national parks, mountains, rivers and plenty of outdoor adventure. There are even a few historical pitstops to stop by and take in. However, Skyline Drive is one of our favorite parts of this drive.

The road, the only route through Shenandoah National Park, was planned for a leisurely drive. The speed limit is 35 miles per hour, and the road includes 75 overlooks where you can pull over and ogle the mountain scenery.

In spring, the unmowed verges host a spectacular display of blooming wildflowers. Blue mists curl over the Appalachian peaks, while deer, black bear, and wild turkeys dart along and across the road.
