Head out on the highway... lookin' for adventure

"Get your motor running  Head out on the highway  Looking for adventure  And whatever comes our way  Yeah darling, gonna make it happen  Take the world in a love embrace" - The Cult, Born to be Wild

TN Driving Adventures...

Driving is one of Mr. H's and my favorite things to do together... not interstate driving (although we've done a lot of that through our cross-country moves). We like to get off the beaten path and explore. Sometimes we have a destination in mind, other times it's just a great time to spend together and explore a new place nearby. 

When we lived in California, our drives took us to practically deserted mining towns like French Gulch and Platina. In Tennessee, we discovered beautiful drives in the Smoky Mountains with phenomenal views. The best part about driving adventures is they are low on money but high on quality time. They also helped us really discover the area around us, which is so easy to miss on the interstate. 

I want to get this book by National Geographic and start adding some of these drives to our "dream list"... and then check them off one by one! Do you have any favorite drives?
