The long and winding roads that lead to a supercar experience

The US is host a myriad of geographical beauties surrounded by oceans and stunning mountain ranges — and between it all, are rivers, canyons, and thousands of lakes. And, thanks to Eisenhower’s 41,000 miles of interstate delights, we are able to traverse all the landscapes the US has to offer!
The east coast
New York – Route 9W to Storm King Highway – Even if you’re city bound, this location is just an hour north of Manhattan on Route 9W. It’s an unassuming highway that wraps around Bear State Park, but when you take the exit for Storm King Highway, you end up on a cliffside drive overlooking the Hudson River.
Maine – Route 1 – If you’ve always wanted to experience the fall foliage that the east coast is known for, taking Route 1 in Maine is a great place to start. Follow the Route 1 along the coast and branch off to Brunswick and end in Ellsworth.
Pennsylvania – Route 30 to Farmington – This familiar land, known as Laurel Heights, may be familiar as it has a famous Frank Lloyd Wright house housed within the trees. Along the drive from Ligonier to Fallwater, prepare for for some lovely twists and turns.
Maryland – Savage River Road – Mayland is the Texas of the east, as it’s known for its rolling hills. Take Savage River Road and connect to Merrill and keep going on through Bloomington. You’ll love feeling the good, sinking feeling of go up and over hills.
Tennessee – Route 64 to Cherokee National Forest – If you’re not in a rush or in search of the biggest adrenaline rush, slow down a little with the mountain view roads in Tennessee. Take in the picturesque views where the movie Thunder Road was filmed.
Michigan – M119 Harbor Springs, Michigan – Experience the Tunnel Of Trees is this green haven. Though its elevation isn’t anything like Storm King Highway, what it lacks in altitude, it makes up for in twisty turns among ceilings of green. If you’re still not convinced, you can even hug the northern border of Lake Michigan which makes for stunning views.
Indiana – Route 135 – If you love charming covered bridges, meandering rivers, ghost towns, and elevation gains, the 100-mile stretch of Route 135 to Mauckport will be well rewarding with Instagram-worthy snaps!

The west coast
California – Mulholland Highway to Route 1 – California is known for the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) that hugs and kisses the Pacific coast for most of its stretch.

Chock-full of switchbacks tucked into the hills, this road goes the distance.
Idaho – Old Highway 95, White Bird, Idaho – You may only think of Napoleon Dynamite when Idaho is the topic of conversation, but this is a hidden gem among car enthusiasts! Imagine patchwork colors of various shades of green right in the middle of the Rockies! This is well worth going to Idaho for!

Colorado – Rabbit Ears Pass – Get high in Colorado by taking Rabbit Ears Pass! This mountain pass is snuggled tight in the Rocky Mountains. The pass gets its name from a basalt rock formation upon sumit, which resembles rabbit ears. Straddle the Continental Divide and look for black bears, foxes, and moose that like to cross.
Hawaii – Mauna Kea State Park – If you find yourself in the aloha state, take in the volcanic landscape of Mauna Kea State Park. Here, you’re surrounded by volcanoes with the clear, blue waters of the pacific in the distance.
