Out of the nearly 49 million people who traveled this past Fourth of July weekend, 41.4 million of them did so by hitting the road. Road trips represented 39% of vacations taken by U.S. travelers. National Geographic has the perfect book for all road trippers, van-life aficionados, RV camping enthusiasts, leaf peepers, motorcyclists and more!
100 Drives, 5000 Ideas contains trips across the United States and Canada — both classic and off the beaten track — for everyone. From a vineyard route through Pacific Northwest wine country to a winter wonderland on Alberta’s Icefields Parkway, you will find innovative itineraries outlining your route, along with when to go and what to see and do.
The book is organized into eight sections by region: West Coast, Midwest, South, Rocky Mountains, Northeast, Tropical, Pan-Regional and Canada. Each of the 100 drives in the book features a diverse range of sights and activities. Sidebars offer even more detours, such as “Art Avenues,” where travelers can find music, galleries and bookshops; “Off Road” hiking, biking and watersports adventures; fairs, festivals and other “Pit Stops”; and tasty “En-Route Eats” that shouldn’t be missed like:
• Cruise the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway
• Drive the famous Oregon Trail (Tip: Pack a lunch!)
• Discover fossils along Dinosaur Drive (a route that winds its way from Calgary to Denver)
• Meander through the glorious Adirondacks
• Follow Canada’s War of 1812 trail (a cruise between Montreal and Windsor, with stops at major battlefields along the way)
• Delight in Hawaii’s Oahu and Big Island drives
Filled with expert tips, tons of activities and plenty to see and do, 100 Drives, 5000 Ideas is an inspirational and practical keepsake for any road warrior.
