This Perfect Road Trip Will Keep You In 70 Degree Weather The Whole Time

by SharonKurheg

Who doesn’t love a road trip? And why shouldn’t we? The United States has 164,000 miles of highway, 58 national parks, and thousands of roadside attractions ranging from dinosaurs in the desert of California to Hillbilly Mini Golf in Tennessee to a (possibly haunted) cave off Rt. 66 to the infamous South of The Border (right over the state line in South Carolina).

One potential problem with road trips is the weather. Depending on where you’re going and when you’re going there, severe heat or cold could put a real damper on your trip, especially any time you have to go outside. Well, one smart Redditor has made the ultimate road trip – one that not only could take you a year to complete, but will keep you in roughly 70 degree weather for the whole trip.

The route is obviously for someone who has a whole year to devote to a road trip, but it’s still a pretty amazing trip – and having been to some of these areas during the times of year corn_starch_party suggests, I agree that you should have beautiful weather, hovering right around 70 degrees, for the whole time.

Should you think about going on a road trip like this (or any road trip, for that matter), consider keeping these links in mind:

  • There’s an online app called Visitacity, that can help you with itineraries & day trips from almost wherever you are. It’s kind of cool because that way you can adapt it to what you specifically like and/or want to do, how many days you plan to be there, etc. 🙂
  • Roadtrippers help you learn what interesting things are on/near your route while you’re on your road trip.
  • Finally, there are plenty of websites, apps, and even a book that can tell you what’s coming up at the next exit during your drive, so you’ll know about hotels, restaurants, bathrooms, campground, etc. Click here to check them out.

Happy trails and safe travels!

I LOVE using roadtrippers for every road trip, no matter how long or short! We have found so many great roadside attractions by using their site and app! I don’t think I’ll be taking this year-long road trip any time soon, but a girl can dream, right?

National Park Queen edit: there are actually 61 national parks now! Indiana Sand Dunes was turned into a National Park on February 15th of this year! (Side note, can National Park Queen actually be my title and not some goofy name I give myself in an attempt to not sound pretentious?) ;]
