Driving the Pan-Am Highway

Driving the Pan-Am Highway

1966 Chevy CorvairThe ultimate road trip is not Route 66, PCH Route 1, or Highway A1A; the ultimate road trip is the Pan-American Highway that begins in Prudhoe Bay in Northern Canada and ends all in Ushuaia at the southernmost tip of South America. The Pan-American Highway is a mix of official roads, unofficial roads, and the Alaskan highway. If you do decide to take the ultimate road trip from North America to South America, there is one important spot along the road that is nearly impossible to cross: the Darién Gap.

The Peterson Automotive Museum

When you are planning a vacation or even a simple abbreviated road trip, it is always a good idea to center the trip around something that you are passionate about. If you are into art, schedule a getaway to a city that has a fantastic art museum. If music is your thing, make plans to see one of your favorite artists or groups in a location that would make for a memorable all around experience. And if you are like us, with cars always on the brain, we recommend making a pilgrimage to a car show or an automotive museum and indulge your avid interest in motor vehicles. To this end, we endeavor to pass along suggested destinations to our readers, and this month we would like to highlight the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.
