For many of us, the allure of a summer road trip is hard-wired into our DNA. Maybe it’s that first time after a long winter that we roll down the windows and feel the breeze of the open road that triggers it. It’s a reminder of just how stale that air surrounding us has been. We all need to shake things up, explore something new, and recharge our soul.
It’s time to get off Zoom and begin to zoom.
It’s time to cash in your first-class ticket to a lifetime of summer memories. Pack some bags, grab your car keys and get ready to embark on the Great American Road Trip. Benzel-Busch has curated a list of Northeastern destinations sure to reinvigorate your spirit. Whether you’re looking for scenic views, historical buildings, or even just some good grub, we’ve got you covered.
The historic mansions in Newport are a sight to behold when you're cruising Ocean Drive where your Mercedes EQS will fit right in. Roll down your windows for some clean salt air to take in the opulence of these estates, which span dozens of acres. Leave that cruise control on because the adventure doesn’t end here. Wind down at the nation’s oldest operating restaurant, White Horse Tavern, or indulge yourself at one of Newport’s many vineyards. Be sure to stretch your legs on the dance floor at Newport’s Jazz Festival before resuming your travels.
Ready to dive into another coastal town? Get your Audi Q5’s all-weather floor mats ready because your next stop is Rehoboth Beach. This beach packs a lot of summer into a tiny city. Stroll down the beach’s mile-long boardwalk and you’ll find hidden gems, like Dolle’s Candyland—Delaware’s oldest candy maker. Don’t forget to take advantage of tax-free shopping at Tanger Outlets and Penny Lane. Before heading out, bring home some Rehoboth Beach charm from the quaint antique shops nestled in town. It’s the genuine summertime experience we hope to return to over and over again.
If you’re looking for another classic American coastal destination, Cape Cod awaits you to the North. Take your trip off-road and check out the Cape’s picturesque 25-mile Rail Trail. Before heading back to your Mercedes-Benz GLE, take the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket. Be sure to keep an eye out for the historic lighthouses you’ll sail by. You might even encounter a whale or two. The throwback feeling you’ll get from these quaint island havens is unique – and it's instantly refreshing. Finish your All-American road trip with the ultimate in Classic Americana, a game from the Cape’s prestigious Baseball League. Grab some lawn chairs and hot dogs for a spur-of-the-moment, “gee, what a great night” stopover — this league plays ball all summer long.
Before you head out, prepare yourself for the road with a stop at your Benzel-Busch dealer. With our Vehicle Upgrade Program, convenient service options, and accessories, we'll make sure you're ready to hit the road in comfort and style.

You pick your road trip, we’ll keep you on the road. Keep the good times rolling.
