Oh yes, Dympfhna is absolutely right. Therefore we always did (and will do) this trip with an RV. It's so easy, you always find a free campsite, and if not you can stay in the wild almost everywhere.
We don't hike, so we didn't need a bear spray. I think I'd not can it handle. Maybe I'd shot KO myself instead of the Baer.

Thanks for the advice both of you. We would want to stay in hotels as we don't like to drive large vehicles, so I'll be sure to plan ahead if ever we go!

Yes, I agree with Andrew Mack! Because, everyone's perspective and their view differs based on their interests. One might vote for an adventurous trip other may depend on the safer part of the trip. So, we can't conclude a single list to be best and final one that suits everyone's taste!

Quoting AndyF

I think it must have been made by a twelve year old "journalist" given the task of churning out a dozen such "top 10" articles a day. With apologies to twelve year olds.

When none of New Zealand, Norway or Scotland make the top ten you know something's up.

Then, in spite of being a UK-based list, they think average cost of accommodation in the UK is £144 per night. Unless your "road trip" is in central London I'd say typical is more like £80 per room. But what do I know, my only road trips this year were Scotland, Cornwall and the Isle of Man.

I see Panama did rather well! That well-known road-trip destination. :)

i agree with you:)

The AlCan HIghway is a great road trip. We did the trip from southern California to Alaska with a tent and had a great time. As we got further north and accommodations were farther apart, we camped at truck stops. They are for RVs and were nearly always full up but we had a tent and had our choice of tent sites.

Highway 1 (the Pacific Coast Highway) is in our back yard and we drive it all the time. It never gets old. The weather changes so the scenery changes and it's always beautiful . . . well, except when the thick fog sets in and you can't see anything.

We love driving in Italy but must admit we avoid the AutoStrada. The slower roads are incredibly beautiful.

There are so many beautiful places that I don't see how anyone could pick a Top 10. You can't find a bad drive in Bavaria or Switzerland. The article didn't really say anything or give a reason or even mention where in each country the drives were. You can also drive in most of these places on incredibly dull, boring roads. After one of our moves, my mother said, "Thank heavens we don't have to drive through ........ any more to visit you." I'm leaving out the state to avoid hurting feelings.

I think you should go to India for a road trip. There are many places in India you can go for like
1. Mumbai to Goa or Pune
2. Manali to Leh
3. Shimla to Manali via Mandi
4. Visakhapatnam to Araku Valley
5. Guwahati to Tawang
6. Chennai to Pondicherry
7. Ahmedabad to Kutch
8. Mumbai to Mount-Abu

Happy Travelling!!!!!
