Take This Road To Nowhere In Washington To Get Away From It All

There’s nothing like going for a relaxing drive through beautiful scenery, especially in the summer. Gas prices and busy schedules often get in the way, and that’s unfortunate because Washington has some incredible roads that are perfect for getting away from it all. The North Cascades Highway, or Washington State Route 20, is one of them.

Don’t let the word “highway” fool you. This route will take you through some rustic spots and mountainous areas, and you’ll feel like you’re really getting away from it all. You’ll come to some great places to stop along the way, and you can be spontaneous and decide in the moment what sounds like fun and what you’ll skip.

The North Cascades Highway definitely has some jaw-dropping views and relaxing scenery. In fact, it’s one of our state’s many beautiful byways perfect for a summer drive.
