Have you ever taken a long road trip with your family? I’m not talking about driving two hours to the lake, although that’s certainly fun. I’m talking about the kind of state border-crossing, national monument viewing, back-seat sleeping road trip that creates memories that last for life. Well, thanks to Chevrolet and you know, science, you can now take the most epic road trip across the U.S. ever.
That’s right. Chevrolet took it upon themselves to team up with a data scientist named Randy Olson. Together they used an algorithm that created the best and most efficient road trip route through all 48 contiguous U.S. states. They created the route map with families in mind, making sure the trip included some of the best-known beloved family vacation spots across America.
What inspired all of this for Chevrolet was a recent national survey they commissioned from which they found that exploring new and interesting locations as well as spending time with family were U.S. parents’ favorite aspects of family road trips.
So they’ve put together a data-driven map of the perfect road trip for your family. If you were to conquer the entire 48-state trip, you would drive over 13,389 miles and spend more than 214.56 hours driving, not including overnight breaks or detours. Of course, they don’t expect you to do this trip in one go. “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.”
On the route you and your family will visit national parks, theme parks, museums, markets, water parks, and everything in between. Click on the picture of the map below to be taken to the interactive map and start planning your family’s next road trip.
“Road trips are about creating shared memories and quality time with family and friends,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing for Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “And when on the road, travelers can trust Chevrolet vehicles to help get them where they’re going reliably. Chevy is now the only brand to earn J.D. Power Dependability Awards for cars, trucks and SUVs three years in a row.”
Sometimes everyone needs a break from singing “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.” The survey that Chevy commissioned also found that families typically bring an average of 6.6 mobile devices on family road trips. Thanks to the technology offered in vehicles like the all-new Chevrolet Traverse, Equinox, and Trax, you won’t have to worry about going over your mobile data limit. With Chevy’s available unlimited 4G LTE Wi-Fi data plan, your family can enjoy all of their mobile entertainment without worry.
