The Europeans invented the car, but Americans invented the road trip. Loading up the car with suitcases, snacks, and cameras for a weekend on the open road is enough to make any traveler feel giddy with the promise of adventure. An incredible four million miles of highways wind their way around the United States. Here are just a few thousand miles of the best routes, road trips, and sights in America.
