Even though summer vacation has come and gone, there’s no reason to fall into a rut for the weekends to come. One great way to get to know that new special someone, or even escape with an old love, is to hit the open road.

Leave the fast-paced life of weekday work and head out on a driving trip this weekend.

There are plenty of scenic routes to be taken anywhere in the US, even if you only want a short drive! Rent a convertible and drive with the top down through a beautiful area right around home. You can even book a room at a Bed & Breakfast if you want to take the longer road less traveled by.
