Road Trip Car Shopping

Car Buyers Considering a Cross-Country Road Trip Can Find a Reliable and Affordable Car at a Local Used Car Seller

Whether car buyers who are planning a cross-country road trip for business or pleasure, they need a car that will deliver results the way there, back and for all times after. It doesn’t matter whether they are driving the car across country as a gift for their graduating college student or if they are recent graduates who want to see the country via Route 66, the right car can make the trip a dream or a nightmare. The best thing car buyers can do is visit a reputable lot owner for used car buying in Orlando to get their start in finding that perfect car for the big trip.

What Are Some Qualities That Prospective Car Buyers Should Seek in Their Used Car Seller? 

Car buyers often feel they risk letting the car seller run everything from the moment they arrive at the lot, but that does not need to happen. The best car sellers want to work with car buyers to help make sure they leave with a car that pleases them and will offer them several thousand miles of reliable and pleasurable driving. If car buyers feel anything less from their car seller than that, they might keep looking for the right used car seller. There are plenty of other characteristics that car buyers should look for in a car seller, which include the following:

  • An Easy Online Tool To Help Customers Find a Vehicle. One way for car buyers to narrow down their choices, especially if they have a certain type of car — or cars — in mind is to search each car seller’s website to see if they have a tool where they can submit certain criteria to see whether that specific car lot has any of the cars the buyer would like. Customers can enter the make, type, model, price and miles per gallon they want to see what the lot has available. Even if the lot does not have what they want during their query, it is still worth a call or visit if they have a good reputation to see when they might have what the car buyer wants.
  • Trade-Ins and Free Appraisals. If a car buyer would like to work out a trade-in arrangement, they should ask lot owners about their trade-in programs and whether they offer free appraisals or any other incentives.

There’s nothing more American than hitting the open road with the windows down, the music up, and a cooler full of beer in the backseat (you know, for later).

The Most Beautiful and Scenic Drives in the United States

Have you considered taking a drive? How about a ‘real nice scenic drive’? To help you plan where you could go, here’s a list of 10 of the most beautiful and scenic drives in the United States……… Let’s hit the road!

10. Hawaii – the world-famous Hana Highway

It would be easy to make a Top 10 list of the most scenic drives in Hawaii alone, given the Aloha State’s natural beauty, but none can rival the world-famous Hana Highway. Located on the island of Maui, the 50-mile road follows the northern shore of the island, offering great views of the Pacific Ocean, mountains and beaches.  Warning: The drive is not for the faint of heart, as it is full of hairpin curves and frequently narrows to one lane. Guardrails can be conspicuously absent even beside precipitous drop-offs, and many locals buzz along the road at freeway speeds. Still, the road is a must-do activity for anyone visiting the island.

9. Oregon Coast Highway

U.S. 101 stretches almost 350 miles from Astoria to the California border. It’s drivable in one day, but it’s much more enjoyable on a two-day journey. Along with Pacific Ocean views, you’ll pass numerous state parks, monstrous sand dunes, picturesque lighthouses and giant offshore rocks known as sea stacks. The most famous of these rocks is 235-foot Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, accessible via a nearby state recreational area. The highlight of the drive is just north of Florence, where one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world, the Heceta Head Lighthouse, stands on a cliff above the Pacific. Just south of the lighthouse are the Sea Lion Caves, the world’s largest sea cave where you can watch these massive creatures in their natural habitat.

8. Monument Valley

Monument Valley is the image most people probably have of the American West, with weird-looking sandstone buttes standing in stark contrast to the surrounding landscape. U.S. Highway 163 runs 24 miles from Kayenta north to the Utah border, passing through some of this famous scenery. If you’re going, stop at the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park for a closer look at formations so famous, they have names: Three Sisters, Mittens, Elephant Butte, The Thumb.

7. Pacific Coast Highway

The highlight of this drive along Highway 1 in California is the Bixby Creek Bridge, one of the most photographed bridges in the world, but there are plenty of other interesting attractions along the route. The road is bracketed by the Pacific Ocean on one side, with the Santa Lucia Mountains towering dramatically on the other. There are numerous scenic overlooks, and there are several California state parks right off the highway, featuring trails to waterfalls, rivers, canyons and other scenery.

6. FLORIDA: Overseas Highway

The 113-mile (181-kilometer) drive on Highway 1 from mainland Florida to Key West induces sensory overload. Besides the natural beauty along the route—tidal flats, teal waters dotted by distant islands—the so-called Overseas Highway awes you in its own right as an engineering marvel. Its concrete stretches across impossible expanses of water, the Atlantic spreading out to the left, the Gulf to the right.

5. The Maine Coast

Touring the Maine Coast is a journey. With more coastline than California (3,478 miles), it takes some time to view the entire Maine Coast. The State of Maine is larger than the other 5 New England states combined. With all that vastness, and the absence of one specific shore route, we recommend touring the spectacularly scenic Maine Coast in sections, spending several nights in each town. Get off the beaten path and explore the nooks and crannies of this remarkable coast called Maine.

The first 30 miles of coast are known as the “Southern Maine Coast Region” comprised of the towns of Kittery, The Yorks, Ogunquit, Wells, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Biddeford, Saco, and Old Orchard Beach. These eight towns offer more to see and do than one could possibly hope to accomplish in a busy week of sightseeing and touring. This first 30 miles of coast also offers 90% of the State’s sandy beaches!

4. CALIFORNIA: Yosemite and Beyond

Near the eastern border of California, in the heart of the Sierra Nevada, lies the wondrous dominion known as Yosemite. Beginning near the park’s southwest corner, the drive heads north to Yosemite Valley, the most-visited section of the park, where El Capitan, Bridalveil Fall, and other famed attractions predominate. The route then winds northeast across an expanse of subalpine wilderness – replete with meadows, ponds, and granite domes — before leaving the park and descending steep slopes to an eerily beautiful lake.

3. Natchez Trace Parkway, Mississippi & Tennessee

The Natchez Trace is one of the oldest trails in North America. In 1801, President Jefferson ordered the Army to build a road along the trail to provide a route for moving troops and delivering mail. Jefferson dispatched soldiers down the road in 1803 to protect the Louisiana Purchase, and Andrew Jackson and his troops followed it to battle the British in the War of 1812. As an 1800-era link between Nashville, Tennessee, and Natchez, Mississippi, the road served as a pathway for settling much of what we now know as the South. Twentieth-century writers such as Eudora Welty later embellished its lore of heroes, bandits, and spies, inspiring Southern leaders to revive the Natchez Trace. It’s also a fascinating drive.

2. Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina & Virginia

Meandering 469 miles from Shenandoah National Park in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina, the Parkway follows the Appalachian Mountains and boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.  A hundred species of trees, a variety of flowering shrubs and wildflowers as well 54 different mammals and 59 species of birds live along the Parkway – more than the entire European continent! Skyline Drive connects to the northernmost section of the Parkway, winding along the crest of the mountains from Waynesboro northward 105 miles to Front Royal.  Developed sites along the Parkway make it easy to stop, park, stretch, visit restrooms and exhibits, hike and get a bite to eat. Lodging and campgrounds are available with opportunities to fish and view wildlife.

1. And now we come to the number one choice.  It’s the scenic drive that YOU choose. What’s you most beautiful drive?
