5 MUST DRIVE ROADS IN 2021

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...

OVERSEAS HIGHWAY

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!

THE ROAD TO HANA

Alright, lets be honest... getting YOUR CAR here, although possible, might not be as realistic. I have been lucky enough to drive this one and its AMAZING. 64 miles of 2 lane (sometimes 1 lane) tropical hills. Connecting Kahului to Hana this one cuts through dense forest and passes countless waterfalls. The scenery is unmatched in my opinion, but go into the drive knowing that this one is for the passengers to take in. YOU will be focused on watching the road and not going over a cliff or smashing into a wall of bamboo.

Have YOU crossed any of these off of your list? Where will you go next? Sign up for Genesis Rally The Big Easy and #BePartOfIt when we head to New Orleans!
