    Default That's the detail you find on maps.

    Hi and Welcome to the Great American Roadtrip Forum.

    Do you have some good maps, or a road atlas of North America to help you with your planning? Then you might find following the suggestions in the following paragraph helpful:

Those are your essential tool in any RoadTrip planning process. Start by marking all the places you know you want to visit. Then connect the dots. Then look for more places of interest and scenic routes along the lines connecting the dots. Repeat until you've got as many sites and roads as you think you want.
    Good maps have so much information, you will see most of what there is along any route you choose. Far more than any of us could possibly list. Besides, other than wanting to get off the beaten track we know nothing of your interests, or what places you may be looking at to visit.

    With 7 days to do a trip which could be done in two full days on the road, you have lots of time to veer off a straight line and visit almost anything which interests you. Good maps are invaluable while planning a trip and essential when on the road. Don't rely solely on your electronics. Many have done so at their peril - some fatal.

    Enjoy the planning.
