Top Scenic Convertible Drives

Scenic convertible drives As summer kicks into gear and soaring temperatures cook the asphalt on roads across the country, we’d like to unveil the best places to go topless this season. Here are the top three:

1. Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Albuquerque, NM
The International Balloon Fiesta has grown to become the largest balloon event in the world. Put the top down to see the skies above Albuquerque transformfrom their normal brilliant blue into a kaleidoscope of color. Balloons drift quietly against the backdrop of the Sandia Mountains, while the peaceful sound of a humming engine is muted occasionally by the roar of thousands of people cheering a liftoff.

2. Highway 1California Coastline
The southern portion of this winding road takes drivers past the old
Malibu Pier and glorious Zuma Beach where convertibles easily grab the warm California sunshine. Drop the top, crank the heater and continue north to majestic Big Sur where the California Redwood trees meet the Pacific Ocean.

3. Interstate 84Portland, OR
Convertibles were made for the pristine air of the Pacific Northwest, which is best enjoyed along Interstate 84 as it cuts directly through the awesome Columbia River Gorge, with its spectacular waterfalls and rocky crags. Put the top down and enjoy the same crisp gusts that make the Gorge one of the best spots in the country for windsurfing.
