  1. Default Western USA Maps

    Can anyone recommend a good road map which either covers the whole of the USA or just the West? I'm going on a road trip around California, Utah and Nevada in July and need a good road map which shows every street in the cities as well as quite remote areas. Is it better to get a normal road map then get hold of detailed maps for each city?

    I'm in the UK so would need to be able to get hold of it over here.

    Default we've got that

    If you look over in the planning section of this website, you'll find an entire page dedicated to map recommendations.

    Generally speaking, a regular atlas will be fine for everyday average travel. This is what I use for most of my long haul roadtrips. If you are planning to get off the beaten path in rural areas, a Benchmark or DeLorme style atlas/gazetteer can be a good help. And if you really need a map that shows every street in a city (including residential streets, not just the main roads) then you probably will need to get a city specific map.
