The Road Less Traveled

Rediscover Road Trips

Travel options that enable social distancing are more popular than ever. We’ve designated 2021 as the Year of the Road Trip so those who are ready to travel can start planning.

We’re sharing great itineraries that cover the whole state throughout this year. From small-town streets to the unique landscapes of our parks, these road trips are designed with socially-distanced fun in mind. Be sure to check back often for new itineraries during the Year of the Road Trip!
