6 Drive-Through Adventures for Socially Distant Explorers

Enjoy museums, nature, and a doughnut tunnel from the safety of your car.

As COVID-19 disrupted the movie industry last year, many film fans turned to a bygone form of entertainment: the drive-in theater. But the world of drive-ins and drive-throughs offers much more than a simple night at the movies. In Seale, Alabama, visitors can drive through a museum. In La Puente, California, diners can pull into a giant doughnut tunnel to purchase their treats. From a drive-through tree to the home of the waffle cone, here are six places to explore the world’s hidden wonders from the safety of your car.
