4. Green Mountain, Vermont

If you love traveling through tree-lined highways, then the Green Mountain Byway is where you need to be.

You’ll also have great views of Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield.

5. Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee & North Carolina

The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is one of the most popular national parks in the country due to its abundance of trees.
