Right in time for Labor Day—and before the real world calls and you have adult responsibilities knocking at your door instead of that 2 a.m. pizza delivery—it’s time to hit that dream-inducing ribbon of highway. As everyone from Lewis and Clark to Jack Kerouac can tell you, taking a road trip across the US is a life must. While Route 66 was one of the original highways in the US, others have followed with scenic landscapes full of history and culture. The luggage delivery company, SendMyBag, has delivered the best road trip routes including the Great Northern Route, the Tail of the Dragon and Border to Border Route.
Take a break from 66, the Mother Road, and explore these other routes. Drive in the cliché “road trip” convertible, let your hair down and blast those music mixes tunes at full tilt while traveling on one of these all-American beauties.
