When you're dreaming of an epic road trip, chances are you'll want to see lots of different landscapes, stop at small towns, and enjoy untouched, natural scenery. There are a few countries in the world where road trips are possible, but the USA is often the number one choice because it offers all the above in abundance. The great American road trip has been written about in several novels, and remains a rite of passage for many people. So why is the USA such a wonderful spot to take a road trip?




Nobody wants to simply see one kind of landscape out the window, and as you drive through the USA you'll see so many different types of scenery. You can drive through mountains and lush forests on day, then the next day be driving through the dry, bright desert. If you're trying to keep a group of people happy, all with different tastes, then the USA is a great country to visit.


National parks


The USA is famous for its huge national parks, and these usually have amenities such as campsites, plus lots of things to do. You could look for RV rental in the USA and stay overnight, enjoying the natural beauty of the country. This means you can save money on hotels, and can relax in a quiet environment in-between drives.


Easy driving


Driving in the USA is fairly easy when compared to other countries, reasons for this include:


  • Lots of long, straight roads
  • Outside of the cities many roads are quiet
  • Most vehicles are automatic
  • Well-maintained roads in most areas
  • Large freeways for high speed driving


This means that most journeys between cities are fairly easy, and unless you go off road or into really rural areas, it's usually a smooth journey.


Well-mapped roads


Road trips across the USA are very popular, and that means there's loads of information and suggestions for trips you can do. Whether it's the classic New York to Los Angeles, a trip up the West Coast, or through the more rural south, you'll find lots of travel blogs with suggestions of things to do. You can get GPS signal in most areas, and find lots of information online about places to stop and see unusual sights.


Staying over


It's important not to get too tired when you're on the road, and luckily along most major routes you'll find classic motels and RV parks so that you can rest your head. Americans are used to long journeys in their cars, and the infrastructure of the country supports long trips.


If you've always dreamed of travelling across America, then there are lots of ways to do so. Whether you rent a comfortable RV, or go for a smaller vehicle, it's an exciting adventure, and the sort of experience you'll remember for a lifetime. With so much to see and do along any route, you'll need lots of time to see this fascinating country.
