This is an odd, but still interesting article written by John Kiernan from WalletHub.com that analyzes 21 elements and seeks to determine the "best" and "worst" stated in which to take road trips in. The RTA policy is that EVERY state is the "best" to road trip in.... (although I have to give the nudge to Utah -- with so many national parks....)
The Top 10 states in order are:
Oregon, Idaho, Minnesota, Utah, Washington, Nevada, New York, California, Ohio, Colorado.
And the ones that are really surprising are the "worst" -- Clearly, statistical analysis has some huge limits!
Worst in order: Mississippi, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Arkansas**, Alaska
The methodology is the most interesting part of the article for me. I'd love to get your thoughts on it!
** I have always loved driving in Arkansas...- gorgeous lakes...
So... what do you think?
