Getting Ready to take A Road Trip?

Four Road Trip Ideas for Northern America

Road tripping through the Northern part of the United States is the perfect vacation if you and your family love the great outdoors. In addition to the beautiful hills and vast bodies of water throughout the region, Northern America has some of the most breathtaking views and if you are a nature buff, many Northern states have Native American reservations and museums you can visit.

So get ready to embrace your inner nature junky with these four scenic road trips in Northern America:

1. Edge of Wilderness (Minnesota) – Minnesota’s Edge of Wilderness runs through the Chippewa National Forest with more than 1,000 lakes and the Mississippi River. Throughout your drive, you’ll have breathtaking views of Minnesota’s lakes, meadows and forests. If your family or friends are into the great outdoors and nature, this is the perfect scenic route to drive. The Edge of Wilderness offers hiking, camping and fishing opportunities.

2. Salmon Bitteroot Valley (Idaho/Montana) – The Salmon Bitteroot Valley in the Idaho and Montana area is the ancestral home of two Indian tribes; the Shoshones and the Flatheads. While it’s been several centuries since these native tribes have lived on the land, the beauty of the Valley’s rivers, mountains and backcountry still remains. If you take Rte. 75, you can drive along the Salmon River, the longest free-flowing waterway in the lower-48 states. This 250 mile valley is also home to Painted Rocks State Park which has camp grounds and the National Bison Range (Rte. 93) where you can take a 19-mile auto tour of Montana’s bison and other wild animals.

3. Lake Michigan Tour (Michigan) – Although Michigan has been hurting after the collapse of the American auto industry, the Wolverine state has more to offer than just great American cars. In addition to great wineries and fruit pastures, the shores of Lake Michigan offer a variety of fun opportunities for your entire family. Along the coast of Lake Michigan, Ludington is a quaint fishing port where you can go fishing, boating, waterskiing and canoeing. Further north along Rte. 31 is a town called Manistee, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The town has a commercial building from 1883 filled with historical exhibits and churches reflecting the Irish, German and Scandinavian heritage of the town’s early settlers.

4. Route 89 (Wyoming) – While Wyoming is best known of Yellowstone National Park, Route 89 offers just as many outdoor adventures as Yellowstone and the charm of a less-traveled road. Route 89 can reach altitudes up to 3,000 feet which means when you reach the top, you will have spectacular view of Bear Lake and the peaks of theSawtooth Mountains. If you take a detour to Bear Lake, be sure to check out the Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge, 18,060 acres of wetlands for many of America’s most beautiful wild animals. At the end of Rte 89 is the Grand Teton National Park, a beautiful park known for its wildlife, including moose, bears, elk, bald eagles and wolves.

“These experienced professionals know what it takes for a business to succeed,” said Myrle McLernon, president of The BLVD Association. “This event has incredible potential to benefit the bottom lines of all those who participate. I strongly encourage not just BLVD businesses, but all local businesses to take advantage of this excellent opportunity.”

Owners and representatives of all local businesses are encouraged to attend, as well as aspiring entrepreneurs who are looking for information on how to jump-start their new business ventures.
