Scenic Drives for Winter

Driving a convertible car in the winter time can be an exhilarating experience if the climate is not too harsh and you’re properly prepared. With some decent weather and awesome upgrades like a wind diffuser, portable heater, and a few cozy blankets, the adventure never has to end! As with any road trip, winter driving means you’ll need to check the tire pressure before heading out and make sure your convertible is ready for the challenge. Once that’s taken care of, you should check out some of these scenic drives we and our fans have come to love.

Pacific Coast Highway

The Pacific Coast Highway is an iconic stretch of highway that hugs the California coastline from San Diego to San Francisco. This beautiful highway is 659 miles long with only a few spots where the coast is not visible. The drive offers amazing sunsets and views of the cliffs you can enjoy for miles. It is the longest state highway in the nation and, along with many other amazing landmarks, is the pride of California.

Red Rock Scenic Byway

The Red Rock Scenic Byway in Arizona boasts some of the most extraordinary views in the country. The red rocks display an endless array of formations and colors with incredible and historic points of interest along the way. The byway runs through Coconino National Forest and along portions of Dry Beaver Creek with plenty of scenic stops along the way.

Capital of Texas Highway

The Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360) is a scenic route along west Austin and winds through the Texas Hill Country. The highway shows off excellent views of downtown Austin and the capitol building as well as some of the most breathtaking views of the Colorado River, the Barton Creek Greenbelt, and the Wild Basin Wilderness Reserve. This highway is popular among amateur and professional cyclists due to its hilly nature, so keep an eye out when enjoying this amazing drive.

State Route 197 – Georgia

The southeastern USA enjoys some of the most iconic and breathtaking views in the nation and Georgia’s State Route 197 is no exception. State Route 197 runs along portions of the Soquee River, curves around Moccasin Creek Cove, and connects with Lookout Mountain Scenic Highway at its most northern point. Enjoy all that Nantahala National Forest to offer, as well, as you course along this beautiful stretch of highway.

These are just a few of our favorite drives for enjoying your convertible during the winter months. Always make sure the weather is agreeable and you and your convertible are up for the drive.
