5. Denali Highway

Location: Alaska Route 8
Known For: Untamed Alaska
Complex Says: If you and your honey are the types who contemplate a less complicated life, the Denali Highway is a fantastic drive to see a portion of Alaska that's still largely wild. It's a gravel road that isn't as traveled as the George Parks Highway, which is paved and was completed long after Denali. At the end, it'll get you to Denali National Park, if you go that far. Along the 135 miles of gravel road, though, you'll find your exploration of vast Alaskan views virtually undisturbed, but for an occasional unobtrusive inn. We can't think of a better place to go to feel like you two are the only ones in the world. Bring spare tires and tools to change, repair, and refill them--you'll probably need them, but it's worth it.
