4 Beautiful US Drives Truck Drivers Shouldn't Miss

America the beautiful! It’s a vast, sprawling country filled with plenty of wide open spaces to explore with gusto. And, often times the best way to see the country is by traveling over the road.

Truck drivers are lords of the highway. It’s a tough job where long hours and days are spent collecting miles, but there are also blessings that make it worth it. The natural beauty witnessed on the job and where to find it is like a precious secret, a unique expertise that long haul drivers keep sacred.

Itching to get out and on the road? These are some of the most breathtaking drives to behold in the US.

California Coast

Highway 101 and Highway 1 are two Pacific routes that will never leave you feeling bored. The 101 takes you through North Cal while Hwy 1 takes you along the coast. You’ll pass iconic landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and your jaw will drop at the glorious landscapes that unfold along Big Sur.


Sometimes drayage will take you to lands afar, such as the wilds of Alaska. The stunning Seward Highway will open your eyes to the pristine ruggedness of the country’s mountains, wildlife and beaches while giving you a small adrenaline rush of awe mixed with adventure. It will take you all the way from Anchorage to Seward.

Montana to Idaho

Take any two-lane road bound West from Montana to Idaho and you’ll find yourself engulfed by nature. It’s impossible to feel bored with so much to look at and ponder. Endless blue sky will fill your window, kissed by mountain peaks, stretches of meadow and national forests.


The San Juan Byway is a stunner that will keep you on the edge of your seat in a state of ecstasy. It’s not a common route taken by truck drivers, but if you take the plunge and go the extra mile, you’re in for a day of winding roads, small towns, snow-capped mountains and a flourish of green. Take your time and enjoy the ride!
