Grand Canyon National Park
This year the Grand Canyon National Park is celebrating its centenary, making it an excellent time to visit. The park may be your destination, but when you self-drive you have the freedom to take the long way around. Make it a desert experience, and stop by Palm Springs, taking in Joshua Tree National Park, before heading to Las Vegas for a little fun.
Yellowstone National Park
The world’s first National Park, Yellowstone is incredible no matter the season. Go hiking, camping, fishing, or choose to take a leisurely horse ride in the warmer months. Visiting in winter means skiing and snowmobile tours. Pick up one of DriveAway’s comfortable motorhomes and make your way to the park, allowing the attractions of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North and South Dakota to lead you astray in the most enjoyable way.
Follow the blues
Let the unmistakable rhythm of the blues direct a relaxed itinerary from Nashville, Tennessee to New Orleans, Louisiana and discover one of the USA’s most celebrated treasures. During your visit, stay and linger in towns with incredible live music scenes, or pass through Tunica, Mississippi dubbed ‘The Gateway to the Blues’. Pay a visit to Elvis’ Graceland, and indulge in the rich Creole culture of vibrant New Orleans.
