Touring and exploring

Hayes and Jarvis Launch USA Road Trip Recommender

Hayes and Jarvis Blog Team January 14, 2015

Nothing evokes that sense of freedom and escapism like getting out on the open road, putting the pedal to the metal, feeling the wind in your hair and letting the scenery roll by. Of course, that’s merely a pipe dream when you’re stuck in gridlocked traffic on the north circular on a dank January morning. 

The USA is the spiritual homeland of the road trip including the popular Route 66, with its wide, stretching highways, vast plains, majestic mountain ranges, dynamic cities and unusual roadside attractions (not to mention cheap fuel); if it’s adventure you’re after, the USA has it in spades.
 
Take to the open roads in a convertible classic American Muscle car, zip around cities with ease in a hatchback, cruise along on an iconic Harley Davidson, or for the true ‘Road Trippin’ experience, rent an RV and pull up wherever you fancy – your vehicle selection will make a big difference to your holiday so choose carefully!
 
 
But with so much to explore, how can you possibly choose a route that won’t span the entire length of the country and take you months to cover? At over 3,000 miles from coast to coast, the USA is vast, and attempting to do it all in one hit is a mammoth task, which is why we’ve decided to give you a few more realistic route suggestions.
 
Our brand new USA Road Trip Recommender serves to help inspire you to plan your dream USA Road Trip; take in some of the major cities, tour the California coast, take on some Man Vs Food-style eating challenges, get a snap of yourself next to some positively quirky roadside Americana, or scare yourself silly at America’s most haunted locations.
 
At launch, the Road Trip Recommender features;
 
45 routes
241 unique locations
Coverage of 47 states
 
Routes range from an endurance-testing 2,700 miles to a leisurely 245-mile coastal jaunt, and span all corners of the USA, so whether you have days or weeks to spare, and you prefer the surf and sun of California or the pristine Glaciers of Alaska, there’s a route for everyone.
