Plan a road trip, then fly there

Because you can't fly your car until hover-converted DeLoreans are readily available in 2015, there's Mauiva Air Cruise: a recently launched Orlando venture that basically does a road trip in the air, flying you to pre-selected destinations aboard a terrifyingly affordable private plane, and arranging everything from accommodations and daily meals to tours at each stop. Oh, the places you'll go:

The Wonder of the West Experience: This left coast journey touches down in Monterey and Carmel, where activities'll range from a "scenic 17mi drive" and whale-watching to an afternoon at Fisherman's Wharf, as well as Sonoma wine tastings and Yosemite tours including an up-close-and-personal look at its "Grizzly Giant" -- confusing, as Marc Gasol usually spends off-seasons in Spain.

The All-American East Experience: This one keeps it Griswold-y, carting you everywhere from Pennsylvania's Amish country, to more wine-attacking in Toronto, as well as a stint at Niagara for its "journey behind the falls", most of which will likely occur after that wine tasting.

Future Packages: Mauiva's going international with a Bahamas/ Key West package that'll launch this winter, before getting down with next year's Euro trip, on which you will accidentally make out with your sister, which might be ok, depending on how you feel about Michelle Trachtenberg.

Those looking to work their own agenda can opt for the "Fly, Stay, and Drive" option, which lets you ditch the group to just "do you", as they say on TV a lot these days, by picking up a rental car that'll await you at each runway, because where you're going, you actually do need roads.
