Americans love road trips. And the call of the open road has never been louder – road trips accounted for more than 40 percent of trips Americans took last year. Here’s why:
1. We have the flexibility to stop on the way. Want to see the world’s largest chicken wing or the International Banana Museum? No problem.
2. We can pack whatever fits in our car. Throw in that grill, super-sized sunscreen, bottles of wine, baby pool and even your Bernese mountain dog.
3. We don’t have to deal with the airport. Keep your clothes on and your dignity intact.
