I want my kids to see the world. At their ages now I’m starting with the United States. At this stage a road trip is the easiest way to travel. But I’m not always sure where I want to go. I want them to see and explore all 50 states, but sometimes I only have a few days to escape. A couple of years ago I discovered freemaptools.com. With their “how far can I travel” tool you can see all of your options. Using an algorithm you plot your starting point, type in how fast you want to go for how long or how many miles and ta-da! -you have a full scope of choices.
Then I hop over to roadtrippers.com to find all sorts of attractions for my trip! You can search for weird stuff, natural wonders or all attractions. We’ve found some amazing adventures with this site. Travelers are always adding sites along the way, so check back often.
Bon voyage adventurer!
