The natural beauty of many states is highlighted in the plethora of parks, scenic drives, and overlooks that punctuate these trips.

In Arizona, it’s recommended to take the 302-mile route from Prescott to Marble Canyon:

“In Prescott, learn about pioneer history at the Sharlot Hall Museum and see artifacts at the Museum of Indigenous People. Then, take the scenic route through the Black Hills and stop for lunch in the historic mining town of Jerome, which is built into a steep mountainside and boasts 100 mile views. Head onward to Sedona for stunning red rock formations and take advantage of the dining and night life in Flagstaff before peering over the south rim of the Grand Canyon and ending your journey at the picturesque Marble Canyon.”
