Fall road trips

The best way to enjoy any season is to give yourself the time to take it all in. Autumn offers changing colors, cooler weather and the scent of harvest. Get the most of this season by choosing from one of these fall road trips to take in your Mazda MX-5, ordered from shortest to longest.

Drive the Red-Arrow Highway in Michigan

For a quick jaunt into the afternoon sun, Midwestern sightseers can’t go wrong with the Red-Arrow Highway. The two-lane, tree-lined road curves along the southeastern edge of Lake Michigan. Bring a sweater and drive with your Mazda’s top down in the autumn sun, enjoying the changing colors of the foliage. Red-Arrow Highway will lead you to plenty of inviting beach towns along the way and straight to one popular vacation spot, Harbor Country, Michigan.

Cruise the Great River Road

It’s true, the Great River Road runs all the way from Minnesota to Louisiana, following the Mississippi River. For your fall road trip in your Mazda MX-5, you don’t have to be quite so ambitious (though by the time you reach New Orleans, you’ll certainly have the top down!). But, even if you stick to the Illinois portion of the Great River Road, you won’t be disappointed. Hop on at Fulton or Moline to see breathtaking views, state historic sites—even Popeye’s home in Chester, IL!

Make the Trek to Yellowstone

If it’s one-on-one time with your co-pilot (or your Mazda MX-5!) that you want, take a handful of days to make your way to Yellowstone National Park. This trip will give you over 20 hours of driving time, which is more than enough to enjoy the “road” part of a road trip. Plus, what can be more American than heading out west in your roadster? Take I-90 and make a pitstop at the Badlands or the Black Hills for extra sightseeing.

No matter where you’re going on your last big trip of the end of summer, stop in at Sierra Mazda to get your car road-ready first!
