A romantic drive around some of the country’s most scenic settings is a great way to rev the engines of romance. Many states have designated stretches of road that have been deemed scenic, but these are the best of the best. Known for their striking beauty, these top five romantic drives are a great way to bring some romance to the road trip!   


CA-Highway1Sign-XL1. The Pacific Coast Highway- Known for its graceful turns, seaside views and quirky small towns, driving along the edge of California is known to be one of the most beautiful drives in America.


2. Berkshires Foliage Drive-In the heart of Massachusetts, this drive is known not only for its gorgeous colors in the fall, but for the quaint New England towns it runs through.


3. Dutch Country- Wind along with Pennsylvania’s hills and dales as you explore a land populated by Amish crafts and homemade foods. Stop by the nation’s oldest continuously operating farmer’s market, and be sure to watch out for horse and buggies!


4. Southern Blue Ridge Parkway- This drive goes from the charming town of Asheville N.C. to deep within Tennessee’s Smokey Mountains. Here you’ll find breathtaking vistas, thick forests, and small towns filled with Appalachian handicrafts.
