Who doesn’t like traveling? Better yet, who doesn’t like road trips? Road trips are always a fun vacation whether it’s a family trip or just a friend or few having some fun. It doesn’t matter if you’ve already had a fantastic road trip, there is always more to see. Here are the top road trip destinations.
Niagara Falls is a great destination for honeymooners or lovers who want a romantic getaway. It is the oldest state park in the United States and was established in 1885 as the Niagara Reservation. There is 3,160 tons of water that flow over the falls every second and falls at 32 feet per second. The Niagara River that feeds the Falls has four of the five Great Lakes that drain into it, Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Erie. There are tours you can take to get close to the falls, just be prepared to get soaked on this adventure.
Las Vegas, Nevada is another destination. There is plenty to do in Vegas besides gambling, there is plenty to see and do. This is not one to keep off of your road trip. There are a ton of shows and events that are happening at the hotels and the hotels themselves are worth going by. The Bellagio Fountains show is also very fascinating and entertaining. There is also a Mystery Adventure tour that allows you to team up and solve a mystery. The Mystery Adventures have been said to be just as good, if not better that the casinos.
New York City should be on everyone’s list. There is so much to do in New York, I mean, after all it is the city that never sleeps. There are plenty of Broadway shows to see if you like going to the theater. You can take a walk in central park, or go to Time Square, or Ground Zero. There are of course wonderful museum exhibits that are sure to please people of all ages. You may try getting tickets to go see a live taping of shows like The Late Show with David Letterman to enjoy some comedy. If you do decide to go to some shows or museums, check ahead for tickets and hours of operation.
Disney World in Orlando, Florida is also a great destination for people of all ages. I think that one is pretty much self explanatory, but just in case, here are some reasons why you shouldn’t leave this spot out of your road trip. With all sorts of shows, roller coasters, and attractions, Disney World is the perfect place to visit whether you are 8 or 88. The park offers different park hopper passes that allow you to go to not only Disney, but also Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom. You can meet your favorite childhood princes, princesses and characters. Disney also has special events such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you have to buy tickets for each event separately from park admission.
The Grand Canyon in Arizona is a classic road trip destination. What could be better than seeing one of the wonders of the world? The Grand Canyon has been called awe-inspiring and breathtaking, but it is really something you need to see for yourself. If you want you can simply skirt around the rim of the canyon, or you can hike your way through it. There are also some tours for rafting. All three ways give you completely different views and ways to experience the canyon. If you know in advance before starting your road trip, you could even plan on riding a mule through the canyon.
