Destination Musts When Road Tripping Through North America

Road trips. You love them, or you hate them. If you hate them, you probably have just had a lack of good experiences. Perhaps you were forced into the back of a van with your 7 brothers and sisters while your parents took you to places that they promised would be fun and worth the drive. Instead of it being fun, it really amounted to 14 hours of hell in the car every day for two weeks as you made your way around the United States.

Some people prefer to fly, and that’s okay. However, you really miss out on the best aspects of travel when you fly over the land instead of driving though it. Road trips can actually be the best time of your life. It all depends on your company and the destination.

Here are some destination musts when road tripping through North America. Pick some good friends, choose your method of transport, and swing by these amazing places. Hopefully your opinion of road trips will change for the better.

This makes it the perfect road trip destination, especially since there is so much good stuff to see while you’re there. The most famous of places is none other than Times Square-the heart of America, and the most frequented place in the state. Times square has more than 300,000 people walk through it every single day.
