Packing up the car and heading cross country is one of the things that many Americans dream about doing at least once in their lifetime. Most people don’t realize the beauty that our country possesses at every twist and turn of the wide-open road and instead choose to spend their vacation time exploring other parts of the world.
Part of the reason that road trips might not be taken as often as they are dreamed about might be due to the planning involved. After all, the appeal of a road trip is not simply getting from point A to point B – it’s about the journey in between.
To make planning a road trip easier, the folks who developed the Roadtrippers website constructed a user-friendly, powerful, and extremely helpful tool to plot out road trip stopovers.
To use the site, simply log on to Roadtrippers.com and plug in your Start point and your Destination. From there, you’ll get a mapped route of your trip, which you can name and save right on the site. Drag the mouse along the route to add Waypoints to hotels, attractions, shopping, sports events and anything else you might be interested in seeing along the way.
By creating a free account, you can make multiple road trip plans, save your preferences for trips and Waypoints, and even share your roadtrip plans to social media sites and email addresses right from the site.
Two more cool features that the site offers are a Fuel Cost predictor for your total trip, and a Bucket List creator so that you can incorporate some of your must-do-before-I-kick-the-bucket activities into your roadtrips when possible.
