A road trip is the classic American family vacation. Pack up the kids (and sometimes the dog) for one of these road trip ideas: a tour of United States National Parks from Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon to the Great Smoky Mountains; an epic California road trip from Big Sur through San Diego and Los Angeles north to San Francisco; a history-packed getaway from New England to Washington D.C.; a classic road trip along Route 66 from Chicago to Arizona, the Blue Ridge Parkway from North Carolina to Virginia or the Pacific Coast Highway in California; an outdoorsy road trip through Florida state parks for a biking, hiking and fishing adventure, or a New England fall colors road trip from Portland, Maine, to New York City.
Road tripping for your family might mean stopping at every small town and quirky kid-friendly roadside attraction with plenty of stops for ice cream and those oh-so-yummy gas station snacks. Or, it might mean powering through to the ultimate road trip destination (especially when the goal is Disneyland or bust).
