Welcome to Road Travel America!
We love America, and travel to the many exciting places and destinations that the USA offers. We also enjoy being out on the open roads of America.
On this site we share highlights of recent travels and our Top 10 Road Trips, with photographs, commentary, maps and recommendations.
We've posted hundreds of original photographs from our travel archives, as well as historic, vintage travel postcards from our collection. These postcards represent another media that enables us to visualize, and remember, the travel styles of the past.
Traveling Those Backroads of America
When we travel, we avoid Interstate highways, choosing instead the backroads and scenic byways of our vast country.
We seldom make hotel and lodging reservations, giving us total flexibility as we travel, to stop wherever we want, and stay as long as we like. And to deviate down that newly discovered byway.
Highlights of Recent Road Trips
Many of our trips have taken us on all segments of Route 66: The Mother Road.
We've journeyed on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, the Natchez Trace in Mississippi, the Skyline Drive in Virginia, and the Turquoise Trail to Santa Fe.
Our road trips have taken us to Bar Harbor, Newport, New York, Boston, Baltimore and many small New England travel destinations.
Some of our journeys have included driving segments of US Highway 83, known as "The Road to Nowhere", and stretching 1,885 miles from Westhope, North Dakota, to Brownsville, Texas.
Like most Americans, we love our national parks! Join with us as we tour Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Death Valley National Park in California and many others.
Visit again soon as we post additional road trips and destinations to this website in 2017!
