Nothing beats the feeling of a wide open road before you. Remember the freedom you felt upon getting your driver's license? Being able to jump in your car and hit the road has long been associated with a great feeling of freedom. So what better way to celebrate freedom this Independence Day – then to jump in your Scion and head for a great drive.
Maybe you already have a favorite drive, but if you'd like to find something new check out "The 50 Best U.S. Driving Routes" from Autoweek.com. Just to give you an example of a few…
"North of New Milford, Connecticut, Route 7 is a relatively traffic-free two-lane blacktop that winds along the Housatonic River clear up to Vermont. The stretch between Kent and Lime Rock affords more smiles per gallon than most public highways. Towns such as Great Barrington make nice pit stops, but this road was built for driving, not shopping."
"Florida's roads are as varied as its landscape. While many prefer to hug the coastline and end up in Key West, we suggest a nice loop in central Florida that starts in Wesley Chapel and ends up in Clermont. Avoid the big highways, and use the smaller two-lanes that link the towns of Lacoochee, Webster, Center Hill, Howey-in-the Hills and Monteverde."
"Take the 5 south, exit at Route 74 (Ortega Highway) at San Juan Capistrano, and head east. This road goes all the way through Hemet and up to Idyllwild. From there, you can continue over the hill to Palm Springs, but following 243 north over to Route 10 is even better."
