This was a great book about all kinds of roadtrips spanning the 50 states AND. 10 Canadian provinces! The best photography as to be expected in a National ageographic book! I loved how some of these trips were off the beaten path! Other classic trips, like route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles, a beach lovers roadtrip on Oahu Circle Island Drive! There are drives in this book searching for Dinosaur fossils in Canada that I thought was so cool, and also a drive for history lovers on Canada's War o ...more

I wish I could travel to all of these places right now! The ideas in this book are wonderful for travel in the USA and Canada. Each drive includes beautiful photos, towns that are included in the road trip, and suggested amounts of driving per trip. There are some restaurants recommended, and some suggested places for lodging. The trips are grouped by region. Hopefully, it won’t be too much longer before we can all travel again.

This is the one book you want to read before your next road trip. In 100 Drives 5,000 Ideas you’ll learn about the scenic highways in America, Canada, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

100 Drives 5,000 Ideas lists the distance, drive time, restaurants, best overnights, best seasons to make the drive and highlights along the way. The information is thorough without being wordy.

The colorful and beautiful pictures allow relief from reading the bothersome small print.

This is the perfect travel guide for everyone who enjoys road trips! I was so excited to check this book out because I love to travel. Right now, travel might be limited but we can all live vicariously through this book.

The images are beautiful and really give a reader an inside look into all of the destinations. I really liked that the images didn’t just focus on common places but really gave information on the culture in detail and through beautiful photos of animals and land.

So thankful for this National Geographic book at a time like this when we all have to stay indoors and can only vacation in our minds! So many amazing photos I found myself misusing sticky notes to hold locations of all the trips I want to take! I wouldn't call myself "outdoorsy" but I am obsessed with tropical locations and swimming in a nature made waterfall. The photographers capture such beauty you can skim the pages and really feel as though you've visited the locations. Lets all start pick ...more

100 Drives, 5000 Ideas... Common and off the beaten path ideas are provided for road trips across America in carefully cultivated list. Not much detail is included for each trip idea, mostly a path to follow and a few highlights of stops to make including some festivals and restaurants. Small section devoted to Canada. Would have enjoyed more images.

I picked up this book from the library to scope out travel plans when the United States opens up again after COVID. I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was very well laid out and had some beautiful pictures. I really liked that it gave books, movies and music based on that area, etc.
