When I moved to Los Angeles from New York, I drove cross-country with a friend. We took secondary roads and combined it with sightseeing, visiting as many oddities as we could. It was an amazing experience and something we've always thought about doing again. If you're considering your own road trip this summer, here are some resources we wish we'd had at our disposal...
- If you're considering blogging your trip or just want to make sure you have some decent pictures of those once in a lifetime experiences, check out PhotoJojo's Ultimate Guide to Road Trip Photography.
- We had a book of odd museums across the US when we road-tripped. Find it all online at Roadside America from the biggest ball of twine to Carhenge, a replica of Stonehenge made entirely of cars.
- Road Trip America helps you with the practical side of car travel from estimating gas costs and distances to ideas on traveling solo or with pets.
- Road Trip USA takes you on classic road trips from the Appalachian Trail to Route 66 to the Pacific Coast Highway
