Along the Road

Summertime and road trips go hand in hand… an ongoing love affair with the car and the open road. Long lazy days behind the wheel, an open agenda and a detour on the backroads. Or maybe a fixed destination, traveling the interstate, Point A to Point B.

A trip down old Route 66, the Rocky Mountains, a drive along the California coast or up the coast of Maine. Will you travel solo, go glamping, visit family or stay at an old historic hotel? Do you pack your food or explore the diners and drive-ins along the way? Are you a planner or do you prefer to just get in the car and go?

So many roads to choose and so much to explore. What are you waiting for!
