The USA is one the most drivable countries in the world. Interstates connect every major city, even making most of Alaska accessible to anyone with gas in their car. When it comes to the cities in the USA, each one is very different. Some are bus friendly, some are car friendly, some are subway friendly. The best cities in the USA for a road trip are the ones that are easy to get to via car, have ample parking, and are worth the trip into the city. Which ones meet all of these criteria? Read on to see ten of the best places in the USA to plan a road trip, and see if you agree!
1. Boston. Before the Big Dig tunnel, driving into Boston was a nightmare. Now, it’s a little less of a nightmare. Driving into Boston isn’t for the weak of heart, but taking your car into the city is probably the quickest way to see the city. Parking isn’t always plentiful, but the sights are. Try eating in the famous North End, taking a Boston Harbor Islands cruise, or walk the famous Freedom Trail of historic sites in the city.
2. Seattle. This city was created with driving in mind. Unlike many of the older cities on the east coast that fall victim to poorly laid out highways, Seattle has an excellent highway system to get in and out of the city. Like any major city, you’ll have some traffic, but it’s a piece of cake next to traffic in New York or LA. Highlights of Seattle include Pike’s Place fish market, the Space Needle, and sightseeing cruises through the Seattle Locks.
