Ultimate Road Trips: USA & Canada (Paperback)
Ultimate Road Trips: USA & Canada provides detailed itineraries for 32 amazing driving routes and adventures, from enthralling national parks to charming small towns.
Including epic journeys like California’s Highway 1, the Canadian Rockies, coastal New England, Hawaii and Alaska, each chapter features route maps and color photos. This guide also has descriptions of all the must-see highlights including short hikes, family-friendly attractions and world-class museums, and the best places to eat and sleep, from quirky diners and hip cafes to retro-cool motels, cozy cabins and stylish glamping resorts. You'll learn the best times to go both for great weather and avoiding the crowds, and find invaluable tips on ensuring a smooth ride. Award-winning travel writer Andrew Collins crisscrossed the region numerous times, having driven through every US state and Canadian province. Car vacations were already gaining in popularity before the pandemic.
Now, with travel picking up again, there's an even stronger interest in the independent journey; when your significant other, family or a group of friends can just hop into a car, hit the open road, and seek out less-crowded encounters with natural beauty.
