Blog Tour: Review of 100 Drives, 5000 Ideas by National Geographic

Publisher: National Geographic
Publication Date: March 2020
From a vineyard route through Northwest wine country to a winter wonderland on Alberta’s Icefields Parkway, this informative travel guide offers epic sights, good bites, and pure fun. Pack your car and hit the road to experience 100 drives–both classic and off the beaten track–across the United States and Canada. You’ll find innovative itineraries outlining your route, along with when to go and what to see and do along the way. And there’s something here to satisfy every passenger. Take in the magnificent turns along Alaska’s Route One through Anchorage to Kenai. Or wind your way through retro spots from Chicago to Los Angeles on Route 66. On nearly 600 miles of New Mexico’s Trail of the Ancients, stop off to encounter sites dating back to A.D. 850. Or discover fossils along Dinosaur Drive, a route that winds its way from Calgary to Denver. Beach lovers will delight in Hawaii’s Oahu Circle Island Drive, while history lovers can follow Canada’s War of 1812 trail: a cruise between Montreal and Windsor with stops at major battlefields along the way.
Filled with expert tips, tons of activities, and plenty to see and do as you drive–the ultimate road trip playlist anyone?–here is an inspirational and practical keepsake for any road warrior.
Leafing through this book was a kind of bittersweet for me.  I found several places that I would love to visit and I have begun to make a bucket list.  However, reading it during a time when we have to practice social distancing, kind of made me a little sad.  I know driving can be isolating, but I would want to get ut and explore.  Let's all hope this passes quickly so people can get back to the business of exploring this amazing country.

The book has beautiful photos that make each place so enticing.  On my list is Revolution Road which starts in my state of Massachusetts and ends in Virginia.  I also want to take my time and travel the Great River Road which runs from Minnesota to Tennessee.  If you like planning road trips, I think this book would be a useful tool.  It's definitely one to add to your travel collection.
