Bloganuary #2: What Is a Road Trip You Would Love to Take?

Did Someone Say Road Trip?

Manny and I in Boston following the Yellow Brick Road.

Road trips might eliminate trips in planes or boats. Since I live in the United States, I’ll keep my desires in check and stay here.

Road Trip Tour

Even the dullest places like parched remote fields can be interesting if you travel with friends and get a great guide.

The destination and activity made this tour fun even though I didn’t know anyone well except my husband.

from Kettleman City, CA to the Central Coast

The beautiful clouds and the fact I was meeting friends at the coast for the weekend made this trip memorable.

I’ve been blessed to visit quite a few places in the United State, usually traveling by plane or train and usually for work. However, I prefer driving now, and there are many places that would be a delight to visit. It’s a huge country and where we live in Arizona has much to explore. That’s where we want to start.

From Arizona we would like to:

  • Visit to all the Western National Parks would be the first trip I’d like to try. I’m partial to the beautiful rocks we have here in Arizona, but I’m ready to head to Utah possibly this March. In a different trip, I’d like to see New Mexico.
  • My mother moved my brother and I to Oregon from Indiana when I was 15. That was quite a road trip in a little VW bug! Now, I’d love to take a road trip back to Oregon and Washington this summer.
  • Seeing the Northeast during the fall with all the lovely trees has always been a place I’d like to visit. I was there in November for a National Council for the Social Studies planning meeting a few years ago. I was too late for the profuse display of colors.

    • You are the Queen of Road Trips. I’m only an amateur compared to you. Mark and I loved to travel by car and motor home. We probably put 30,000 miles on our first motor home. I don’t have as many lovely pictures from those days as I do now.

  1. I love US road trips ๐Ÿ™‚ The one I’d really like to take is Route 66, but I’d settle for any state I’ve not yet visited although Montana and Alaska are perhaps highest on my wish-list!

    • Yes, those sound fabulous. I’d love to go on an Alaskan cruise, I’m not sure about road trip. Montana is huge. A road trip across it takes more than a day or at least a full day, and when I did it, I just wanted to get to the other side. Granted, once I was a kid moving to Oregon, and the other time I was sick with bronchitis taking turns driving with my husband and sleeping in between. Not fair to Montana. Route 66 – yes, that would be fun. I’ve done part of it but not all the way to Chicago.

    • Those are lovely places. We used to visit Punta Gorda 20 miles south of Ft. Lauderdale when I was a kid – in August! I went with a friend in 2018, but we didn’t see the Space Center. You piqued my curiosity, though. I remember Cape Canaveral and that they renamed the space center the Kennedy Space Center after Kennedy’s death in 1963. My dad used to meet us when he flew into Orlando, only 34 miles from the KSC. I can’t imagine why he never wanted to go there himself! He was an engineer. Thanks for sharing this Willow. ๐Ÿ™‚
