Spring is here, which means it is the perfect time for a road trip. For many families, travelling to new destinations is one of the things they want to do the most during the warmer months. If you are planning any vacations for this spring or summer, consider this ultimate road trip map put together by Chevrolet and data scientist Randy Olson.
The trip makes 48 stops, one in each of the 48 contiguous states, for a cross-country trek line no other. Olson used his data crunching skills to create the optimal path that would cross each state with very little back-tracking.
“This map is designed so road trippers can start anywhere and drive as much or as little as they like,” said Olson. “Across the U.S., people can create their perfect route, whether staying close to home or embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime 48-state journey.”
If you were to follow this path exactly, you would spend about 214.56 hours driving (about nine days) and would add 13,389 miles to your odometer. Starting in Ohio takes you to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland. From there, you can take in the Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan, The Bean at Millennium Park in Chicago, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, and you are just getting started.
