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

In the world that we live in today where glorifying the art of “busy” is often times applauded, we can appreciate the simplicity of leaving the rush of the city noise behind and getting away from it all. This one road in Alaska is the perfect place to go to escape the crowds of summertime tourists. Those packed roads that are filled with motor-homes and motor-coaches, nope – you will get none of that here. In fact, because 85% of this road is made up of gravel, most rental car companies won’t even allow their cars to travel down this road.

Because this highway is a bit of a trek to get to, you’ll surely be happy to learn that there are ample places to pull off to the side of the road and pitch a tent on the soft tundra. Along the way you will be spoiled by fascinating views of mountains, glaciers and wildlife. For your traveling convenience, check out this Google Map to assure you are perfectly on track to head to absolutely nowhere fast. Hit the gas station and get ready for the most peaceful and beautiful drive of your life…
