Check out the season’s cold-weather beauty from the comfort of your car on these top winter drives.

Arches National Park, Utah

1 of 15

Starting Point: Moab, UT

The Route: 36 miles on the park’s Scenic Drive

What to Expect: Beautiful any time of year, Arches National Park’s natural sandstone sculptures assume an ethereal quality when covered in a layer of snow and bathed in soft winter light—best for desert photography. The scenic drive is paved, and even after a storm, snow usually melts off quickly.

Where to Stop: Moderate daytime temperatures (usually in the mid-40s; dress in layers) invite a walk along the Park Avenue Trail, a stroll right through The Windows, and a pause to marvel at Balanced Rock.
