Take the Great American Road trip across Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC 

The call of the open road is irresistible across the Capital Region USA. Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC boast some of America's most alluring scenic byways. Take in treasured small towns, majestic Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains, warm sandy beaches and breathtaking national parks, to say nothing of the inspiring memorials and hip and historic neighborhoods of Washington, DC.

Sites include:

  • George Washington Memorial Parkway, which serves as a gateway to the nation's capital and a living memorial to first president, George Washington.
  • The Journey Through Hallowed Ground is a scenic and historically rich landscape route from Gettysburg in Pennsylvania to Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia.
  • The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad route recounts the life story of Harriet Tubman and her courageous actions to rescue family and friends along the Underground Railroad – a secret network of people, places and routes that provided shelter to escaping slaves.
  • 23 miles and 174 years long, the Colonial Parkway takes travellers on a journey through British colonial history in America.
