As heat and humidity soar, and air quality declines, our friends at National Geographic suggest we get in our cars and Drive!
From the Pacific Coast Highway to the shores of Lake Michigan to the Cherohala Skyway of Tennessee, Nat Geo’s Ultimate Road Trips page promises:
Sometimes it’s the journey, sometimes it’s the destination—and sometimes, it’s both. National Geographic Traveler has scoured the globe for the world’s most beautiful, interesting, and off-beat road trips.
“A glittering path into an emerald land” will lead you and your car to the lower Hudson River Valley, home of EarthDesk, where today’s Air Quality Index is orange, unhealthy.
To see if your region is on the National Geographic driving destinations list, go here.
