Favorite U.S. Routes to Drive
Favorite U.S. Routes to Drive

According to the Federal Highway Administration, there are more than 164,000 miles of highways in the United States, and those who have FedEx truck jobs in Los Angeles, CA, have the opportunity to travel many of them. Of course, what we at Armada Trucking consider the best and what we consider our least favorite routes are dependent somewhat on the weather and the season. While most folks doing FedEx driving jobs in Los Angeles, CA, enjoy seeing the fall foliage of America’s beautiful Northeast corridor, few people love the traffic congestion on those highways when the snow is flying. Here, we’ve compiled a short list of some of the best routes to drive in the U.S.

Kansas Route 66

Famed Route 66 Highway cuts through a tiny piece of Kansas’ southeastern corner, but travelers along that classic route immediately recognize a slice of Americana. With scenes reminiscent of the Disney film “Cars,” travelers on this portion of highway that runs between Galena, Kansas, and Baxter Springs, Kansas, enjoy an easy drive.

Maine Park Loop Road

This scenic pass takes drivers smack dab through the middle of one of Maine’s loveliest portions—Acadia National Park. The 27-mile road winds through the park’s lakes, mountains, high cliffs, and rocky shores. Lined with the brilliant colors of fall in the East Coast, the picturesque drive has a number of special observation points and special parking areas. Only a small portion of the road has two-way lanes.

Minnesota Highway 61

This beautiful byway traverses the hills and cliffs along the Mississippi River. The passage takes drivers between Duluth and Two Harbors, and eventually concludes in Canada. Its picturesque appeal includes a waterfall and a pebbly beach.

California Pacific Coast Highway

One of the most well-known roadways in America, the Pacific Coast Highway runs north and south along most of the Pacific coastline in California. It serves as a major thoroughfare between San Francisco and Los Angeles, so a driver with an Amazon trucking career in Los Angeles, CA, is sure to catch a drive on this scenic roadway. Along the 665-mile stretch, drivers pass through Orange County, Los Angeles, the Central Coast and Big Sur, the Monterey Bay area, and across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco before terminating in Mendocino County, California. Many stretches of this famed Highway 1 feature ocean scenery.

Many of America’s beautiful roadways are immortalized in country songs and movies. Traveling along the coast of California or down Route 66 through Kansas and other states is one of the best ways to see the country in all its glory. With jobs in Amazon trucking in Los Angeles, truck drivers have the opportunity to see much of the country up close.
