Hitting the road is a time-honored tradition.
So, if you like to experience a new destination from a front-seat view, road trips are the best way to explore.
Put your petal to the metal and motor on down the road.
These 3 spectacular road trips should for sure be on your list, as follows:
The Karakoram Highway is an 800-mile stretch from China to Pakistan.

Start in Chicago, pass through St. Louis blasting jazz music, and follow it up with a shot of Southern hospitality in Amarillo, Texas.
