3 Ideas for Your Next Family Road Trip

Now is probably the best time to start planning your summer road trip. Reserve vacation time from your job and be ready to go once the kids are out of school. Here are 3 ideas to get you started.

1. RV Camping Trip

With an RV, half the planning is already done as your family already has a place to sleep. Many routes in the US are generally camper-friendly with Kemah RV sites, such as the historic Route 66, which runs from Illinois to Southern California. The desert southwest, including Santa Fe, the Grand Canyon and the Joshua Tree Forest, has unusually beautiful scenery.

2. America Bridge Tour

Teach your kids about American innovation and engineering by visiting the country’s most stunning bridges. The Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur is literally carved out of the cliffs to extend the Pacific Coastal Highway down to Los Angeles and San Diego. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel was built during the Cold War to get traffic from Virginia Beach to Delmarva. It is 23 miles of alternating low bridge and underwater tunnels that helped prevent potential blockage to the Naval Base in Norfolk.

3. National Park Tour

For an educational, beautiful and genuinely American road trip, plan a tour through the United States National Park system. Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks give you the highlights of the Rocky Mountain region and include famous landmarks such as the Old Faithful Geyser. In Utah, you can take the ultimate National Park Grand Circle Tour. It guides you through, among others, Zion, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley.

The United States is unique in the variety of landscapes, climates and views, and almost all of it is accessible by road vehicles. Take a summer road trip and help your family experience the beauty that is America.
