Road trip planning is essential when visiting California (CA) simply because of the wealth of choices. We've compiled a buffet of scenic drives for every taste: winding road trips through towering sequoias, cliff-hugging Pacific shoreline routes, shimmering straightaways through desert canyons, and eye-popping mountain passes. In California, the best road trips are about the journey and the destination. You can look forward to a huge variety of natural wonders, parks and roadside attractions. And with plenty of eateries and other amenities along the way, you can always find a place to spread out your road trip map and start planning your next California adventure. We invite you to use our free road trip planner to find a scenic drive that's right up your alley.
