Explore America:
Road Trip Itineraries for Every Interest

A great American tradition, road trips have recently seen a popularity boost amidst the coronavirus pandemic, offering safe and responsible adventure and exploration on your terms. A country as large as America boasts a wide range of itineraries to suit every traveler. Whether you’re looking for sprawling vineyards or charming New England towns, there’s nothing quite like being on the open road and connecting with yourself, your family, and America’s scenic landscapes.

Wine Lovers: Santa Ynez Valley, CA

You don’t have to travel to Bordeaux to enjoy fine wine. Hop in your car for a road trip through our own wine country. Just a few hours from Los Angeles and San Francisco, it is part of Santa Barbara’s vast wine country, offering over 120 wineries; mostly small boutique operations that present an unpretentious, friendly atmosphere. Fun fact, the movie Sideways was filmed in this area and helped put the Santa Ynez Valley on the international wine map.

Area highlight: Crown Point Vineyards – Founded in 2012 with the sole focus of producing the finest Cabernet-based wines, Crown Point is blessed with distinct climatic conditions and soil types that provide an ideal growing environment for Bordeaux varieties. Tastings at the private estate can be arranged by appointment only.

For a taste of what to expect, Morgan Stanley Reserved members can enjoy Crown Point Vineyards’ highly-sought after, limited-production wine packages shipped to their homes at a discount, plus a complimentary 30-min Zoom tasting experience.

Zen Seekers: Lenox, MA

Located about 3 hours from NYC and 2.5 from Boston, Lenox is a classic Berkshire town, full of boutiques, galleries and charming dining options. An art-lover's dream, Lenox is the site of Shakespeare and Co. and Tanglewood, the famous summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It is also well known for its fall foliage season when leaves explode into the bright neon yellow and deep orange hues of autumn.

Area highlight: Canyon Ranch – The Lenox offshoot of the Tucson-based wellness retreat offers the best of the Berkshires – casual elegance in a historic setting, natural wonders to explore year-round, and unlimited inspiration for healthy living. Located in a sprawling Gilded Age mansion, Bellefontaine built in 1897, Canyon Ranch can help guests work toward their health, nutrition, spiritual, and self-care goals. Day passes allow you to enjoy a transformative day with access to the spa, fitness classes and wellness presentations.

Morgan Stanley Reserved members receive 10% off their Canyon Ranch stay, an additional $100 resort credit and a bonus wellness service.

Family Vacation: Bozeman, MT

Located in the southwest part of Montana, Bozeman is known as “the most livable place” for a reason. The gem of Big Sky Country entices travelers everywhere with its rugged landscapes, multitude of outdoor activities and scenic national park filled with diverse wildlife. Besides the usual tourist herds that flock to nearby Yellowstone each year, Bozeman has seen an even bigger surge in travelers lately as people seek to escape to rural areas away from the big city crowds.

Area highlight: The Resort at Paws Up – This family vacation resort and ranch has the makings of a national park - 37,000 acres of pristine and undeveloped land, 100 miles of trails and 10 miles of the Blackfoot river - except, it’s private. Make unforgettable memories when you participate in one of their several adventures, from horseback riding, river rafting and fly-fishing to chuck wagon dinners and ghost town tours. Accommodations range from private homes to safari-style tents, making it easy to fit families of all sizes and generations.

Morgan Stanley Reserved members receive a $300 resort credit at Paws Up for use at the spa or towards excursions.
