We know how fun a group adventure can be. You and close friends. Or you and a bunch of family. Or you with close friends and a bunch of family. It’s all fantastic and very Griswaldian. But sometimes you need some time to be alone. That ever precious “me time” has never been more important and we think you should take some of it now.

As part of our all-American series, we thought it’d be a fine idea to put together a list of eight destinations that are tailor-made for a solo road trip. But not just any old road trip; one with you and only you to keep you company.

CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE

CarRentals.com_ScenicYou’ll understand why Chattanooga is called the Scenic City after you drive to the top of Lookout Mountain and peer down on this amazing landscape. In fact, you can see seven states from up there: Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. Lookout Mountain is also home to Ruby Falls, a formation of caverns with an underground waterfall. After your spelunking needs are fulfilled, get your fair share of art at the Hunter Museum of American Art. The collection is humungous, with hundreds of paintings, photographs, sculptures, and decorative arts. And what better way to end the day than with a pile of meat at Main Street Meats? There’s your Chattanooga in a nutshell.

8 SOLO ROAD TRIP DESTINATIONS:

  • Hoquiam, Washington
  • Ogden, Utah
  • Sheridan, Wyoming
