About the Author
A trusted friend in a complicated world, Reader’s Digest brings big ideas to your kitchen table, shares stories you can’t put down, offers clever ways to live your life and the chance to laugh and cry together about what makes us all human.
Whether taking a cross country trip or planning a staycation, “Great American Road Trips” is the ultimate guide to scenic drives. Even if you are not planning a road trip anytime soon, it still contains exceptional pictures and information about each scenic drive. The first person descriptions make them more realistic. Highlight: each section ends with a quote and being from Texas and having lived near Fredericksburg, I am partial to the one after ‘Southwest,’ “Where flowers bloom, so does hope” by Lady Bird Johnson because it accompanies the picture of a field of bluebonnets near Fredericksburg. Seeing all these flowers along side the road every spring is awe-inspiring. All the pictures are colorful and they make each destination look more inviting. “Great American Road Trips” is an extremely helpful resource for anyone planning a scenic drive or two and might just inspire a bucket list altogether.

"Great American Road Trips: Scenic Drives by Reader’s Digest, is a bible every road tripper should have."
"Great American Road Trips: Scenic Drives has astonishingly beautiful photography throughout. It’s the type of book you want to read over and over again and then dream about it later."

"Whether you want a leisurely drive along the coast, the best drives for Fall foliage, or a more adventurous drive along the highest road in America, Great American Road Trips is a must-have guide. In a world inundated with road trip guides, Scenic Drives stands out because of the personal touch they bring to each journey. The photos are stunning and the advice great, but the real beauty of this book shines in the form of people who not only drove the routes, but grew up in the vicinity of them."
