To be frank, there’s something magical about the open road, a mountain range up ahead, and the wind at your back. It’s a new sense of freedom that’s incomprehensible, unless you’ve actually done it and you’ve felt that rush that cannot be found in many other places. After all, a stretch of road and a full tank of road can be a little exhilarating if you do it right. And what better way to stop along the way then at rustic resorts in the middle of untouched nature or in federally protected land?

Especially with the 100th year of service for the U.S. National Park Service, it seems prime time to be taking advantage of the open road, a beautiful skyline and a mountain-esque lodge to spend the night, or the weekend, at. Further, it seems perfect timing to see the Wild, Wild West and the “Real America” at its finest. And if this seems at all intriguing, I guess it’s a good thing that the Forever Resorts chain has put together the perfect tour, beginning in Denver, Colorado with an endpoint in Jackson, Wyoming. It is over 1400 miles of pure perfection and of untouched glory rivaling any form of the imagination. You’ll see it all, from the Rocky Mountains, the Sioux Native Americans  just outside the Badlands in South Dakota, go white water rafting along the Snake River in the Bridger-Teton National Park and take in all the quintessential American highlights you thought only existed in old school Hollywoods or those black and white movies your grandma loves to torment you with during the holidays. And if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, Scenic Safaris offers ATVing, fly fishing and snow mobile tours available as well. Plus, the lodging is almost to die for for when you get back from a long day outside and just want to put your feet up with an adult beverage waiting for you on a coaster.

It is the perfect combination of rustically modern with prime access to the best hikes, rafting, and more to satisfy your nature and Vitamin D needs. It’s also the greatest excuse to finally get back outside, like we’ve all promised ourselves to do more of over the years. Plus it can be used as the perfect excuse to learn about conservationism while also staying in a great location in a comfy bed with the world and extensive wild life just outside your window. Possibly quite literally as well.

This tour with Forever Resorts is designed to show you a part of America many have forgotten about or don’t want to pay attention to because it does not have the hustle and bustle of either coastline and it’s fraught with nature and fresh air. Plus, you will be able to see a part of the nation that does not see nearly enough tourism, even in prime time. And you’ll have the opportunity to remember just how beautiful this planet really is, with land that’s actually untouched by anything but nature and its counter-parts. It’s a beautiful thing to see something at its finest and in its prime.
