U.S. Coastal Road Trip Vacation Ideas with Fine Hotels + Resorts®

After a long winter, we’re all ready to be back outside—and jumping in the car for a road trip is one of the quickest ways to get away. But after the last year, we could all use a little more pampering and special care. American Express Travel can elevate your road trip vacation when you use Membership Rewards® Pay with Points² for your prepaid rental car and hotel stays at one of the Fine Hotels + Resorts® properties. Driving up the coast or through the country, enjoying the outdoors and the views, then stopping for the night—to indulge in benefits such as daily breakfast for two, guaranteed 4pm checkout and a $100 experience credit, unique to each property, when you book with us—makes for a uniquely upscale, and all the more restful, road trip.

If you want to explore the iconic New England or California coasts by car, these two itineraries are an excellent place to start. And each of these Fine Hotels + Resorts® properties welcome you along the routes, with fine service, accommodations, and experience benefits up to $550* in value. Terms apply.

*Average value based on Fine Hotels + Resorts® bookings in 2019 for stays of two nights. Actual value will vary based on property, room rate, upgrade availability, and use of benefits.
