With summer vacations in full swing, we have just published two extraordinary scenic drives in Maine, the vacationland state. Shaped by glaciers and frequented by great American presidents including Franklin D. Roosevelt, Maine offers a limitless array of outdoor activities, puffins, whales, and miles of breathtaking ocean coastline. Start your adventure now.
We recently added thousands of campgrounds to our data base, and now you can search for them on any scenic drive or place of interest (previously campgrounds were only available on our Road Trip Planner). Simply click the Campground checkbox under the map and campground locations will appear.
In the news
We do not usually say much about the people behind myscenicdrives.com, but recently, myscenicdrives.com founder, Eric Theriault, was interviewed by GeekWire.
New in our Road Trip Planner
We love the ways you have found to use our Road Trip Planner. Not only for getaways — we’ve seen amazing road trips planned for cross-country college tours, baseball stadium tours, honeymoons and more.
We are humbled and inspired by your road trips and appreciate the many tips and comments. This month, we release two major features in our Road Trip Planner thanks to your constructive feedback.
The City Suggester
One of the features our users love is how our Road Trip Planner quickly divides your trip into manageable days. Finding the perfect stopping point varies from person to person, and sometimes from stop to stop. To customize your stop, we now have a City Suggester which locates cities and towns along your route, allowing you to choose an alternate as your overnight stop.
To use this feature, go to the Directions Menu in the Road Trip Planner, and click on the city selected for your overnight. A side panel will open highlighting alternate nearby cities and towns. Simply click on the Add button on your desired city or town to incorporate the stop into your route.
Export to your Calendar
If you are one of the many people who use smartphone calendars, you will love our newest feature: exporting your trip to your Calendar!
To use this feature, first enable the Start Date of your trip under Trip Settings. Once that is done, click the File menu above the map and select “Export to Calendar”. We then generate an iCalendar file which can be used in most popular software, including Google Calendar.

We having fun giving away a myscenicdrives cap in a random drawing each time we reach another 100 Facebook likes until the end of August. If you’re not a Facebook user, send us an e-mail at email@example.com to be automatically entered.
