For decades, road trips have offered families an affordable way to explore some of America’s most eclectic and kitschy towns. With the rising cost of hotels and the hassle of flying and dealing with airport security, now may be the perfect time to hit the road with the family.
One of America’s most iconic roads, the “mother of all road trips”,” if you will, is Route 66. Prior to 1984, Route 66 was called “the main street of America.” Running between Chicago to Los Angeles, the historic Route 66 was a symbol of America’s highways and the all-American family road trip.
Although the towns and cities off the historic Route 66 have a lot to offer, there are hundreds of equally memorable and quirky highways across the U.S. So take the road less traveled this summer and check back with Vehicle Vibes over the next couple of weeks for suggestions on some of America’s most interesting and scenic routes.
