Plan your trip to include places that are noted for scenic beauty or historic significance. As you
plan a trip you have target destinations. You can then add interesting places along the way,
which will make this your trip of a lifetime. We consider our travels as memories in the making.
Places shown in this trip planner are listed in the order you will come to them if you travel
clockwise around the nation. Some travelers favor interstate highways and others prefer to
explore "back roads". That's the reason we give general headings so you can travel your way.
The descriptions are terse so you can get a quick overview as you form a skeleton of your
plans for "a trip of a lifetime". More than 150 photos add to the descriptions. After developing
your tentative route use other guides for in-depth descriptions and to refine the itinerary of
places to see. This is especially true if you plan to tour large cities, which are not covered.
As you take new roads off-the-beaten-track you'll discover old mining villages, small farm
towns, others are fishing or lumber communities. Some are prospering. Some are sleepy.
Possibly your most vivid memories of the trip will be of these spontaneous wanderings and the
people you meet. Also omitted are the many recreational opportunities such as hiking, golf,
water sports, etc. These, like restaurants and lodging, fall into place after deciding the route
that will take us to the places we want to visit.
