Road Trips – Tips & Itineraries

Road trips are one of my favorite ways to travel, whether at home in the US or abroad. Having the freedom to stop where and when you want enhances the whole travel experience, and you can see so much more when you have your own set of wheels!

I've done road trips in several countries across three different continents, and below you can find all my road trip tips, along with some really detailed road trip itineraries.

All of these itineraries are based on road trips I have personally taken (sometimes more than once!), and a few include printable versions of the itinerary.
