Tired of traveling cross-country on boring, endless interstates? Take the next exit and get onto a two-lane highway. You’ll have an unforgettable experience. A retro experience. An all-American experience. And the books to guide you down these soulful and charismatic routes are Road Trip USA.

There are two types of road trippers out there: the ones who plan and pack weeks ahead, and those who throw a bag in the car and call stops on the fly. Luckily, these guides work with both adventuring styles. Explore the Atlantic Coast from New York to Key West, meander the twisty-turns of the Pacific Coast Highway from Washington to Southern California, or take the classic, legendary Route 66 from Los Angeles to Chicago. One thing a road trip should never be is boring, and we don’t think road trip planners should be either.


Road Trip USA is now in its seventh edition.
