Abstract:

"A brand new edition featuring illuminating text written by expert, local writers alongside over 250 inspiring full-colour photographs that capture the fun and freedom of discovering life on America's highways and byways. It features in-depth itineraries for five cross-country road trips taking in everywhere from what was once the infamous 'Route 66', now the Pasadena Freeway, the glittering beach towns between San Diego and Los Angeles, the historic sites and colonial heritage from New York to Virginia and much, much more, including plenty of suggestions for where to stop and what to see along the way. A brand new 'Best of' feature highlights the USA's top attractions not to be missed and provides the editor's choice of exclusive and unique recommendations to make your road trip extra special. All the principal sites along each route are conveniently cross-referenced by number to accompanying full-colour driving maps that plot each route in detail. You will also find fascinating features exploring transportation history and on-the-road culture. A comprehensive 'Travel Tips' section provides essential practical information on how to get started, how much to budget for your trip, where to stay along the way, the best places to eat and drink, the best festivals and other cultural events, where to shop, where to watch sports and more, along with useful contact telephone numbers to help you book activities in advance. The back cover also includes a handy guide to American road signs. The unique combination of insightful exploration alongside practical advice means this guide is truly indispensible on your American road trip, but also makes the perfect souvenir when it's time to come home."--Publisher.
