Coastal road trips

Not that potential road trip routes are in short supply, but Coastal Living has put together a list of five "stunning" coastal road trips and not all are the usual suspects. Instead of California 1 through Carmel and Big Sur, it recommends a stretch that starts in Jenner, about 75 miles north of San Francisco, and runs north to Fort Bragg. In the Southeast, Coastal Living recommends Mobile, Ala., to New Orleans – a trip I took last spring (although mine started in Miami) and would especially recommend for people interested in water and wildlife. Other trips: North Carolina’s Outer Banks (everything depends on ferry schedules; check them when you first start your planning), Alaska from Seward to Anchorage (a favorite of mine), and U.S. 1 in Maine south from Acadia National Park.
