The Best Itinerary for a Drivacation in the US
Miles and Moments with Club Mahindra Joyscapes
Phew! The past 18 months have been quite the wild ride. But it’s time to substitute Zoom with a little vroom vroom. We have put together this fun, exciting, action-packed, road trip itinerary in the US. After all, United States is one of the most drivable destinations in the world and home to an enthralling mix of sightseeing and adventure.
What better time to let your hair down and write your own travel destiny?
A year spent cooped up at home calls for a little road trip action, don’t you think? And once you’ve got that U.S stamp on your passport, there’s nothing stopping you from experiencing wanderlust behind the wheels. So, how about getting a breath of fresh air with a getaway to sunny Kissimmee? It is one of the most exciting destinations in the state of Florida, not to mention, family friendly. Here, you can build your very own adventure as you go along. With its proximity to Orlando, there is only the best memories to be made.
Once you’ve arrived safely in Kissimmee, head down to the sun-kissed Silver Lake Resort, a Club Mahindra affiliate property.
Spend the rest of your day relaxing and enjoying the property’s luxurious features including a fabulous swimming pool, a thrilling outdoor/indoor games area, and some drool-worthy dining experiences. Do try the classic shrimp cocktail!
Your adventure on the road begins from here...
Rise and shine — it’s driving time!
Pack some heathy treats and curate a fun playlist to go. You and your family get to visit the world’s only amusement park that offers a drive-through safari, a gator park, and an airboat tour all in one place!
Have a meet and greet with more than 100 exotic animals and native Florida wildlife such as the white-tailed deer, bison, cracker cow, zebra, watusi and oryx.
Later, retreat to the delicious barbeque restaurant called the Chomp House Grill. A menu of smoked chicken and grilled vegetables is ideal for when lunchtime comes calling.
Wake up and get ready to experience another dimension to this road trip. One that requires you to strap on a helmet and get in touch with your inner cyclist!
Pedal down the quaint streets of Celebration, a small town famous for its charming little cafes, world-class architecture, and colourful homes. Soak in the nostalgia and elegance of this hidden locale, as you explore on your cycle.
A stark difference to the day before, but equally fun. Did you know this heart-warming community was planned and built by award-winning architects from The Walt Disney Company?
If you thought classic American biking was fun, then you’ll absolutely love this.
Hop out of the car and onto the back of a majestic horse!
Yes, you heard us right.
You’ll be surprised to know that Kissimmee was once a ranch town. And you can get a rare glimpse of what life would be like as a cattle rustler at Lazy H Ranch.
So, saddle up and ride through vast, open prairies. Take shelter under hundred-year-old live oaks. Glide along the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga. Make your way across the scenic Kissimmee Valley and discover a true connection with Florida’s beautiful biodiversity!
So far, you’ve conquered land in every possible manner.
On car. On bike. On horseback.
Your road trip is about to get much cooler, as you get to see Kissimmee from a brilliant new perspective with a hot air balloon ride.
Hover over emerald treetops and greet the rising sun. Keep your eyes wide open for fascinating wildlife sightings. Try to catch the reflection of your brightly coloured balloon on the surface of the glassy lakes below.
What’s more? You’ll often share the air with other balloons, so be sure to smile and wave! And one of the best parts about a hot air balloon ride is the landing, of course. You almost never know where it might be.
Kissimmee balloons rely on their pilot’s unique knowledge of air currents, so your final destination is always one, great, big surprise!
On your last day, explore Orlando’s premium outlets.
The boutiques are like a theme park in itself. Deemed to be a true shopper’s paradise, you can have your fill of apparel, shoes, accessories, toys, and more, from some of the biggest brands. And like we always say; a road trip is incomplete without some boutique hopping.
Wherever you go, however many miles you travel, make sure to savour every moment. With Joyscapes’ range of road trip itineraries, you will never fall short of extraordinary moments. So, buckle up.
