There’s nothing quite like being on the road, seeing incredible landscapes, stumbling upon offbeat spots, and stopping in small towns. Road tripping is a glorious American tradition, one that inspires carefreeness in us. It’s also an unforgettable way to bond with new girlfriends, reconnect with old ones, or simply squeeze in alone time.

From majestic Alaska to big sky Montana and idyllic Massachusetts, the country is every woman’s oyster for epic adventures on the open road. So pack your RV rental, and get ready for the journey of a lifetime.
Anchorage to Valdez, Alaska
Drive north on AK-1, which meanders along Matanuska River, from Anchorage then south on Highway 4 to Valdez. This 300-mile route is one of Alaska’s most scenic drives, rewarding travelers with panoramas of mighty glaciers, peaks and lakes. As a fitting finale, a series of lovely waterfalls waves you past in Keystone Canyon outside Valdez.
Historic Columbia River Highway, Oregon
The 75-mile Colombia River Highway in Oregon is the first ever planned scenic roadway in the US. That fact alone makes this drive a worthy addition to any road trip list. The breathtaking views of the Columbia River and the Cascade Mountains it offers make it a memorable one. Essential stops include the Crown Point and the Bridge of the Gods.
