Take a virtual trip across five must-see routes before you start planning your next vacation.

Americans love road trips. Close to 80 percent of the families that plan to travel this summer will likely opt for highways instead of airports. If you are one of those adventurers but you haven’t decided where to go yet, be prepared to avoid some states during the road trip – and not because we don’t like them, but because they are either more expensive or more dangerous than the rest. Or both.

Depending on your destination, however, there are a few roads you really have to check out. These scenic drives might not be entirely along your way but, as they say, it’s not always about the destination, sometimes it’s about the journey itself.

Trying to help with planning out your next road trip and turning it into an unforgettable experience, Expedia has put together five of the most scenic roads in the United States. To make things even better, the folks behind one of the world’s largest travel booking websites have highlighted their favorite routes with short pixel art style videos inspired by old-school racing games such as Sega’s Out Run released in 1986.

Before you start packing for your next car trip, make sure to check out these five must-see roads in America.
