For many travellers from the entire world, it is impossible to think about the USA without thinking of the American highway, without seeing yourself in the shoes of Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider or Bob Dylan’s In Highway 61 Revisited. The USA can be synonymous with the celebration of the ideal of freedom on the open road. There are enough pop songs to enjoy a lifetime of coast-to-coast drives and road trips. But more importantly, there are more than enough adventurous travellers to take the challenge. So if you fancy a holiday without the kids, or if the kids are old enough to join – remember that toddlers, babies and young children will need a different kind of vacation -, why not reconnect with the adventurous spirit of your teenage years and cruise the road through the USA?
Summon The Organization Guru
A road trip might be symbol of freedom but it requires a lot of careful planning. For instance, if you intend to use your car, you will need to run a thorough check on its brakes, tyres, engine and suspensions. Do make sure that your insurance is up-to-date and that you won’t be left stranded on the side of the road in case of trouble. Additionally, if you don’t live in the USA, but come from one of the countries that benefits from an easy entry regulation, remember to register online for your ESTA which gives you free access to the USA for a period of up to 90 days. You will need to register at least 48 hours before departure to make sure that your visit can be authorized on time. If you are worried about finding the best itinerary, you can rely on a travel agency specialist in road trips across the USA. They are here to plan for you the journey and provide everything from amazing accommodations to a car up for the challenge.
Visit Incredible Places
There’s one thing about visiting the USA from a car: You can see more of it! From breathtaking sceneries in California if you are planning a Western road trips – including driving of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge – to stunning landscapes in the Deep South, the USA has a lot to offer. Take your pick between a road trip to the East through New York and New England, Florida, the Deep South, the Rockies, the Pacific Northwest region, the Pacific Southwest area, Alaska, and cost-to-cost trips. There is a lot to discover and plenty more to taste!
Reconnect With Your Adventurous Self
How long has it been since you’ve last felt truly young and adventurous? Without having to turn into a modern Bruce Willis, you can use road trip holidays to revive your younger self and experience the dream of freedom that you’ve probably abandoned, like everyone else, when you became a responsible adult. The feeling of the open road in front of you, the sun hitting the car as you drive, is there any better definition of the perfect adventure? Whether you need time to breathe and recharge your batteries, or you want to experience the optimism of youth again, a holiday on the route is one of the best gifts that you could make yourself this year.
