The best trips for newlyweds are the ones that bring togetherness and bonding whether you’re in the mountains or a beachside retreat. But there’s no rule that says you can’t explore stretches of the country on one trip. A road trip with luxury in mind can treat you and your loved one to an adventure without the added stress of navigating airports and complex itineraries. Hit the open road with one of these luxurious road trip themes with newlyweds in mind.

Rallycross Road Trip

Infuse a sense of adventure and exhilaration into your honeymoon with a racing-themed crossroad trip. You can still embrace the luxury with a car that’s comfortable enough to drive cross-country to various racing tracks and events without skimping on amenities. The Chevrolet Camaro offers that fun, two-door muscle coupe and convertible option so you can let the wind whip through your hair on a long stretch of highway. The Camaro marked its return in 2010 and now offers a smaller, lighter and tighter version. Car enthusiasts will also appreciate the Chevy Camaro’s six-cylinder engine and an automatic impression hitting 60 mph in 6.3 seconds.

Once you figure out what car to drive, add the best stops for a road rally on your list. Wind your way through Pikes Peak to the Bonneville Salts Flat, head to Indiana for the Indianapolis 500, or bond as a couple at Team O'Neil Rally School in New Hampshire to turn into a power road couples.

For a more tropical coastal adventure, try hitting the roads outside of Diamond Head and Koko Head in Oahu and drive north along the coast. Newlyweds will get a glimpse of cliffs and surf breaks like Waimea Bay. Turn it into an adventure with a drive on Hana Highway from Paia to the Haleakala National Park Kipahulu area. Get your camera ready for plenty of roadside waterfalls and surfing selfie stops. Before you call it a day, look for Hookipa Beach and Bay for the windsurfing capital of the world and spots for shore breaks with eclectic cafes for an authentic pineapple dish.

Iconic Road Trip with a Twist

You probably already know all about the iconic Route 66 road trip, but did you know you can actually hear some tunes along the way? The New Mexico Department of Transportation decided to add some excitement along the desolate stretch of road between Albuquerque and Tijeras and added grooves in the road that play “America the Beautiful” when you drive over them at the speed limit of 45 mph. Although there aren't any other “must hears” on the list, you should also stop to explore the Santa Monica Pier in California or Wigwam Village #7 in San Bernardino and soak up the nature and history of this iconic road trip.
