Nothing says “road trip” more than cruising down the highway, windows down and music up, with all your worries disappearing in the rearview mirror and the open road lying ahead. Buckle up and get ready for a ride to remember with Travel’s Best Road Trips 2014, our coveted list of the most picturesque and adventurous drives across the globe.

We pulled together a panel of 6 road trip experts — including off-road explorer and host Don Wildman, Roadtrippers.com founder and CEO James Fisher, and cinematographer and road tripper Allison Otto — to share their recommendations for Travel’s Best Road Trips 2014.

This year’s list includes adventurous off-roading on the salt flats in Bolivia, a shoreline tour of the beaches of Lake Michigan, and a food-inspired drive through Italy’s Puglia region.

Warning: This list will give you the sudden urge to drop everything, get in your car, and go.
Castles, Caves and Cheese: Cheddar Gorge, Somerset, England

Castles, Caves and Cheese: Cheddar Gorge, Somerset, England

It’s no surprise that Fisher, born and raised in the English countryside, also picks a road trip in the United Kingdom. It all starts at a castle, says Fisher: Tintagel Castle, located high atop the rugged coast of Cornwall. Fisher advises then taking the scenic route to Bath, past the fishing village of Boscastle, which dates back to the 1500s. The gorge itself is one of England's most interesting areas, a land of witches, caves and waterfalls.

Fisher adds, “But most importantly it is home to the original, cave-matured, cheddar cheese.” See the cheese being made by the town’s only remaining cheesemakers at Cheddar Gorge Cheese Factory, followed by free tastings of the town’s namesake.
