Best Scenic Drives in the U.S. & Canada

Driving can be both the most stressful and the most relaxing of activities. While there are few things more frustrating than sitting in traffic on your daily commute, a relaxing scenic drive down winding coastal roads can be truly therapeutic. HuffingtonPost.com offers a list of the most relaxing coastal drives around the country and Canada with breathtaking views and an experience you will never forget.

17-Mile Drive, California: Winding along the coast of Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea, the historic 17-mile drive is a perfect way to explore the beautiful Northern California coast. Be sure to stop at beaches for wildlife sightings, enjoy lunch or shopping at the Lodge at Pebble Beach, and snap a few photos of the famous “Lone Cypress.”

Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia: he Cabot Trail, a loop road through the Cape Breton Highlands. Stop for hikes around St. Ann’s bay, enjoy a whale-watching outing and take a break for shopping and dining at some of the small towns of Cape Breton Island.

Hana Highway, Hawaii: While you’re vacationing in Maui, rent a car for a day to explore the coastal Hana Highway, one of National Geographic’s “Drives of a Lifetime.” The Hana Coast offers 52 miles of tropical forests and waterfalls, black-sand beaches, and breathtaking vistas on Maui’s Eastern shore.

Acadia National Park Loop Road, Maine: Located on Mount Desert Island, the drive navigates through mountains, forests, lakes and rocky coastline. Stop off at the many observation points for photo opps, take a break at Sand Beach, and try some fresh seafood in the town of Bar Harbor when you’ve finished the loop.

Cape Cod Scenic Drive, Massachusetts: This 63-mile scenic drive along the southern coast of Cape Cod Bay — which follows Massachusetts Highway 6A to U.S. Highway 6 at Orleans – stops off at such destinations as Cape Cod National Seashore, Provincetown, and the Three Sisters Lighthouse.
