Rev up your clients to explore more of the US of A with the new RoadTrips USA collection of 34 themed and destination itineraries. With trip inspo and travel info at your fingertips, Brand USA’s self-drive itineraries will help you steer your clients to hit the highways and byways with confidence.
With 50 states, 5 territories and the District of Columbia, just knowing where to start crafting the perfect point-to-point USA road trip can be daunting.
So, the knowledgeable folks at Brand USA have racked up the research mileage for you. They’ve created 34 tried-and-tested self-drive itineraries as downloadable PDFs to share with your clients, putting you in the driving seat.
Navigating the USA
It’s the ideal starting point for the ultimate USA getaway. Each road trip starts and ends in a gateway city, designed with international travellers in mind. Clients can roll straight from the airport into a hire car or add extra days to their itinerary.
There’s also handy driving times and distances between stops in kilometres – perfectly geared for an Aussie audience.
Plus, each road trip is customisable – clients can choose their start and end destinations and select itineraries based on length.
You can even access images and videos, making it as easy as American pie to convert itinerary inspo into sales.
RoadTrips USA, baby!
From cultural-themed road trips to multi-state journeys, historic trails and scenic wanders, these 34 inspired itineraries will set your clients on a path to discover the USA.
For otherworldly landscapes, encourage them to hit the road from Las Vegas, Nevada on the Canyons, Mesas & Hoodoos, Volcanic Peaks to Sparkling Shores in Oregon and Washington and Geological Wonders in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho.
Music-loving clients? Inspire a deep dive into America’s songbook with the Bourbon, Bluegrass & Horse Country roundtrip from Nashville, Tennessee. There’s also the eight-state Musical Roots of the South odyssey from Dallas, Texas to Charleston, South Carolina.
Road-trippers can also follow the Rhythms of the River, tracing the Mississippi from Chicago, Illinois down to New Orleans, Louisiana through eight states. Or embark on a Great Lakes loop through Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan from Chicago.
Stars in their eyes? They’ll be awestruck by silver screen destinations on the fly-and-drive At The Movies cross-country trip from NYC to LA. And ogle the bright lights and big-city sights of Iconic Cities & Beyond from Boston, Massachusetts to Washington, D.C.
For a slice of small-town life, Quaint New England Towns through Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island serves up the scenery and charm we love from TV and movies.
Classic road trippers and foodies can tick off the Route 66 & Texas Hill Country or Historic Route 66 – Curios, Pit Stops & Diners itineraries from their bucket list. Meanwhile, The Civil Rights History Trail puts place-making landmarks of the South into context.
