"National Geographic's 100 Drives, 5000 Ideas is the perfect road trip companion. And, if you're feeling adventurous, it outlines pitstops and detours that you can take along the way." -Tabi Thoughts
"The photographs themselves make you want to hop into the car
and start driving...The book also has great tips for those who like
to do more than to drive, but bike, camp, hike, etc...In this book,
the author gives some very cool facts about the locations, which
will be great for anyone wanting to be on Jeopardy, or better yet,
annoy the kids with your immense, and seemingly endless, fountain
of impractical knowledge." -Man of la Book

We may just be in between trips or there may be a more significant reason that travel has been placed on hold. At times like these, I turn to books to fuel my wanderlust and find ideas for when I am able to hit the road again. National Geographic's recently published 100 Drives, 5000 Ideas by Joe Yogerst is just the book you need right now to satisfy your wanderlust and provide plenty of ideas for future road trips...If you browse through the book and sticky tab all the trips that look interesting then you'll have enough road trip ideas to last a lifetime!!" -Gone With the Family "Nowadays, a road trip sounds pretty perfect...I couldn't think of a better book to inspire my wanderlust at this moment in time...Flipping through the pages, it almost felt like I was in the locations highlighted-exactly the escapism I needed during a time where I can't leave and travel...One of the things I love most about National Geographic is how it continually inspires a sense of wonder...I feel as though when we're ready to start traversing the United States, we'll be ready to hit the road like pros." -Alex on the Map
