I particularly would like to recommend this site as it constantly will be expanded to include new, exciting destinations.

USA

The United States of America - the epitome of endless expanse, infinite, well-developed, spacious streets, countless accommodations of all possible categories in very good standard, well-equipped campgrounds, a hugh variety of fascinating national parks with incomparable nature experiences as well as vibrant metropolises - the ideal terrain for innumerous road trips. The classic  route for newbies in the southwestern part of the country driving Highway #1 along the coast of the Pacific Ocean, with exciting cities such as San Francisco and Los Angeles, with the beaches of Santa Barbara, Malibu, Santa Monica or Venice Beach offers impressive experiences. In this region everyone gets their money's worth, the nature lover as well as the fan of superb US style entertainment but also the lifestyle freak. Ideally, you spend a little more time here anyway, take into consideration to include various national parks, such as Joshua Tree NP, Grand Canyon NP, Bryce Canyon NP, Arches NP, Monument Valley, Death Valley as well as the gambling metropolis Las Vegas and maybe a section of the classic Route 66. A special tip - the Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon on the territory of the Navajo Nation in Arizona, is an impressive, magical place with its fascinating play of colours. Regarding this region it is worth mentioning Yosemite National Park, with its giant sequoia trees, waterfalls and wildlife habitat. Anyhow, the USA offers almost endless opportunities for road trip enthusiasts. Other stunning experiences are the eastern areas with New York, Cape Cod, Boston, Niagara Falls, Washington DC and Philadelphia, or the east coast from New York to Miami as well as Florida, the southern states, the Midwest, experience this incredibly multifaceted country according to your mood.

Portugal

Portugal is perfect for a road trip. The mild climate in the sun-kissed country makes the small country an ideal year-round travel destination. There is something for everyone here - the sea always close by, rugged rock formations in the south on the Algarve coast, wild natural beaches on the west coast. In addition, it is a country of extremely interesting historical sites and fascinating centuries-old architecture through to modern art of building. Particularly impressive and only to be found in Portugal is the magnificent Manueline style, as well as the azulejos, a legacy of Moorish culture, which are indispensable in the cityscapes. Must-sees on your road trip to Portugal: Lisbon, the cosmopolitan capital of the country with its two levels that can be overcome in different ways, with the Elevador de Santa Justa, the historic elevator built by a student of Gustave Eiffel, the funiculars called Ascensores, the famous tram line 28 or on foot. From Lisbon, Sintra, Estoril and Cascais are worthwhile day trips.

Gently rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and cork oak forests characterize this area.
