Beyond Route 66: Ten More Road Trips-- Part 2: Coastlines, Castles and Mountains

6.  WILD ATLANTIC WAY (REPUBLIC IRELAND)

Longest coastal route in the world.  Spans entire length of Ireland,  1553 miles  2-4 weeks.  Enormous cliffs, incredible beaches.

7.  GROSSGLOCKNER HIGH ALPINE ROAD (AUSTRIA)

Hohe Tauren National Park.  Austria's highest mountain Grossglockner and its glacier, the Pasterze.

Thirty miles of high alpine road with 36 bends while climbing 2,504 metres.  Maybe one to avoid if you're scared of heights.

8.  ROMANTIC ROAD (GERMANY)  Like a fairy tale.  217 miles with some of the prettiest towns and castles in Germany.  Created after World War II to encourage tourism back to Bavaria.  Basically, it is a drive through a Disney movie.

9.  CABOT TRAIL (CANADA)

186 miles in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.  Three days.

10.  PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY

Seattle to San Diego.  621 miles.  You know.
