Road trips are a staple summer activity and a tradition that is uniquely American. Since the construction of interstate highways, American families have been piling into cars and hitting the road, hoping to discover a peaceful glimpse of nature and explore the vast open terrain of America’s heartland. While times have changed and most of us now see a road trip as a means to reach our end location, America’s highways are just as scenic and still the most beautiful way to travel. This summer, consider taking a road trip with your friends and family; it is a classic bonding experience and should provide you memories that will last a lifetime.
