Taking a vacation is all about escaping everyday life and diving straight into places of wonder. Some may think the perfect vacation is lying on the sand on a beach somewhere far away. Others may think it’s exploring a giant city one bar and restaurant at a time. And then there are those–like yourself–who enjoy firing up the engine of a car and hitting the open road without a care in the world and a map as the only companion.
Here at CarRentals.com, we scoured the entire continent of North America for the most beautiful places to drive through. Some are known for their historic neighborhoods, others for their proximity to incredible national parks, and others for their stunning coastal highway drives, but all have earned a rightful spot on our list of the 33 most scenic towns in North America.
COEUR D'ALENE, ID
If going for a cruise along the shoreline of one of the most beautiful lakes in Idaho sounds like your idea of a great vacation, look no further than Coeur d’Alene. See if you can hit the floating green on hole 14 at the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course. And if you want to play cowboy for the day, head over to Red Horse Mountain Ranch and learn how to throw a lasso from the back of a thoroughbred.
