It’s summer, get outdoors and explore!
We picked a few favorite getaways from the four corners of the U.S., plus the actual Four Corners National Monument.
|Strait of Juan de Fuca
Take the 1.4-mile round trip Cape Flattery Trail to dramatic views at the most northwest tip of the contiguous United States.
|Maine’s Big Sur
Maine’s Highway 1 hugs the winding Atlantic coast, replete with history, culture, lighthouses and the decadent flavors of the ocean’s bounty.
|Malibu to Lompoc
Explore the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California. Rocky volcanic bluffs, sand dunes, expansive beaches, and eclectic welcoming towns.
Traverse 43 bridges, one of them 7-miles long, pass 59 Keys and the only living coral reef in North America.
Four Corners National Monument
The perfect stop if you’re visiting Monument Valley, one of nature’s most
Stand in four states at once at Four Corners National Monument, where Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado all meet. It is the only location in the United States where four states join like this. There is a small admission fee, visitor center and Native American artisans selling jewelry, crafts and traditional foods.
