This section of the Great American RoadTrip Forum was suggested by Pat Mount, (PMount).
We've long been interested in Day Road Trips -- and this sub-Forum will enable members to post their favorites!
I created an index page for a series of day trips I wrote for the NPR affiliate in Las Vegas.
And there is a subsection of articles about day trips here from around the USA, written by RTA Contributing Writers.
Theory of day trips...
Car Ride? Make it a Road Trip
There are NO boring places!
I will maintain a table of contents list of all day trips posted on this thread:
