Here are 10 trips that prove America is bigger and more beautiful than you could ever imagine.

FLORIDA KEYS OVERSEAS HIGHWAY
Ernest Hemingway and Jimmy Buffett — 2 American icons, with their own devoted fan bases, who’ve called Key West home. Discover why they fell in love with the Keys by driving the 127-mile Florida Keys Overseas Highway, which includes a network of bridges that stretch from mainland Florida all the way to the southernmost point in the US. Make sure to pull over for the occasional conch fritter and snorkeling break, of course.
REDWOOD NATIONAL AND STATE PARKS, CALIFORNIA
This enchanted forest of giant trees is located next to miles of empty beach, combining history, culture, wonder and nature in 1 beautiful location. As sunbeams break through the towering canopy, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported into a real-life fairy tale. Redwood National Park is truly an awe-inspiring escape for wildlife and nature enthusiasts.

LAFAYETTE, LOUISIANA
A mix of historical and cultural influences has created the unique Cajun/French Creole food, music and language found only in this small part of the country. Enjoy a delicious (and messy) crawfish boil, dance to zydeco music and take a thrilling airboat ride! Plus, in Lafayette, you’ll get all the Mardi Gras celebration without the New Orleans tourism.

WHITE SANDS NATIONAL MONUMENT, NEW MEXICO
Craving Zen and beauty? White Sands offers perhaps the most serene experience in the country. Walking the dunes is like wading through an ocean of diamonds surrounded by purple mountains. Make sure to arrive when the gates open to witness the morning light dancing across the desert.
