Fab Five: Scenic Drives



Hit the road on one of America's most scenic oceanfront drives.

 

Highway 1, Big Sur, California 

Arguably the jewel in the crown of American highways, this iconic drive offers breathtaking coast and ocean views and the chance to spot condors, whales and elephant seals. seemonterey.com

Road to Hana, Maui, Hawaii

This 64-mile “Garden of Eden” wonder connects Kahului with historic Hana, but be warned: the road is very winding and narrow in places and passes over 59 bridges, many only one lane wide. Not for the faint of heart. hawaiitourismauthority.org

Overseas Highway Florida Keys

Definitely one for the bucket list: the southernmost section of U.S. Route 1 is a unique highway stretching 113 miles from Miami to Key West with 42 bridges connecting countless coral islets. fla-keys.com

Route 1A, New Hampshire

Known locally as Ocean Boulevard, this is one of New England’s most beautiful drives stretching from Seabrook and alongside the beaches of Hampton and Rye to downtown Portsmouth. visitnh.gov

Highway 12, North Carolina

The only north-south highway linking the magnificient Outer Banks to the U.S. mainland, Highway 12 delivers a bounty of coastal experiences along this spectacular chain of windswept barrier islands. outerbanks.org
