5 MUST DRIVE ROADS IN 2021
2020 was... well, yeah. So , lets have a plan for when you decide to grab the keys and hit the road. Here are 5 scenic drives for any car enthusiasts in 2021. There is a GREAT variety of locations here, from Cities, Mountains, Coasts, Islands and even Bayous! Lets get to it...
The Overseas Highway connects the Florida Keys to the mainland of Florida. 106.5 miles long, we recently drove this one for the Keys To Paradise Rally! The Overseas Highway delivers exactly what you would expect, and with the right playlist and co-pilot it's PERFECT. What I liked about it was this was not one of those drives with exhilarating turns and rolling hills, this was nice and relaxing. Mostly 2 lanes the whole way, but literally surrounded by palm trees and ocean.
LAKE SHORE DRIVE
Just under 16 miles, this one might be the coolest scenic combo you will come across. This multilevel expressway wraps around Lake Michigan and runs alongside downtown Chicago. Boats and sky scrapers all in one. We have not done this one yet, but it is high up there on the list of locations to drive!
GREAT RIVER ROAD
Connecting New Orleans and Memphis, this one is filled with bends through the Bayou and hugs the Mississippi River. NOLA, Baton Rouge, and Cajun Country. Enjoy this one, the French Quarter, and The Gulf-South's largest motorsports complex in June when Genesis Rally does The Big Easy!
BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY
Almost 500 miles of mountain curves that cut through the Great Smokey Mountains. The Blue Ridge Parkway spans from Virginia down through North Carolina. Shenandoah National Park is at the Virginia side of the parkway, heading south you will get tons of scenic overlooks and winding roads with several changes in elevation as well! The Smokey Mountains never disappoint on a drive, Genesis Rally has been there before, and we will be back!
