Start at the Jefferson National Expansion Museum in St. Louis, Missouri and end with a hike to Tillamook Head in Oregon, the farthest point reached by the Lewis and Clark expedition. We asked Beth Flowers, vice president of leisure for Brownell Travel, our burning questions about travel—most importantly, when we might be able to do so again. She says to always do your homework beforehand to make sure you can catch some incredible live music while you're in town. Start your trip in Troy to check out Bacchus Wood-Fired—Zagat recently named theirs one of the nation's top 15 "totally tricked out pizza ovens." For the quintessential American road trip, everyone knows you need to get your kicks on Route 66. California's Route 1 extends almost the entire length of the Golden State, but our favorite stretch for road trips is the Big Sur portion, from Morro Bay to Carmel-by-the-Sea. Then you can save your custom trip and Drive on and stop for a picnic lunch at Bahia Honda State Park, where you can also enjoy a dip in the ocean (there's no charge to park!). A couple of can't-miss highlights? “I may have to settle for a long weekend at the Lake Rabun Hotel or this amazing rental property.”, “I’m dreaming of a summer road trip to the Adirondacks and a weekend at the historic lakeside ‘great camp’, the Point,” says Dayle Wood, VERANDA style & market editor. “It has some of our favorite restaurants (including Cucina 24, White Duck Taco Shop, and Buxton Hall BBQ), breweries (Burial, Zillicoah, and New Belgium), and hikes along the Blue Ridge Parkway.”, "The first place I'd love to travel to is Sea Island, Georgia," says Atlanta-based designer Clary Bosbyshell. "It’s a magical, romantic spot with cozy, private cottages tucked in the foothills of the Santa Ynez mountains, where even visiting dogs get the deluxe treatment!". "It's my favorite place in the world, and I can't wait to safely shop St. Armands Circle, enjoy dinner with a view at Dry Dock Waterfront Grill, and watch the sunset from the Resort at Longboat Key Club hopefully one day soon.". There's only one way to get to Key West and that's U.S. Route 1 also known as the Overseas Highway. The VERANDA staff (and a few favorite designers) are sharing the first road trips we’re taking once it’s safe to travel again.
