HASH(0xa10cf294) out of 5 stars Great resource June 19 2006
By J Martin Jellinek - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just returned from a 7,250 mile road trip, following many of the routes in this book, specifically the Great Northern to the Pacific Coast Highway to the Oregon Trail. Jamie's book contained so many useful stopping places, although if I had stopped at all of them, this trip would have taken months rather than weeks. In using the book, you have to choose what works for you - and not everything is of interest. However, he did lead me to some wonderful places like Sullys Hill Nature Preserve in Devil's Lake, MT; the Buffalo Bill Historic Museum in Cody, WY; and the museum dedicated to lumbering in Grand Rapids, MN - all of which I might well have bypassed had it not been for Jamie's recomendations.

If you are planning a road trip this summer, either near or far, this book is a great resource. It is also great for the armchair traveller. But beware, it may get you out of your armchair and on the road. Buyer beware!

HASH(0xa10a7b10) out of 5 stars Interesting but not a great reference March 8 2007
By Moshe Jacobson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book details five north-south and five east-west journeys across the US. The book is arranged into 10 sections, one for each path, each of which lists, in order, all the sites worth seeing on the particular route in that section.

While it is a good collection of sites, the book is laid out in a way that makes it useful only if you read the entire thing. There is no easy way to look up the attractions by state or as dots on a map or by type or anything like that. There isn't even a table of contents at the beginning of the book or of each section. The only reference you have to a particular site is the blurb itself.

So while some may find this to be a useful guide, I'd say it needs a bit more work before it's a good reference.

HASH(0xa0ffba98) out of 5 stars NEW EDITION BETTER THAN EVER May 8 2006
By Cara G - Published on
Format: Paperback
The new edition of Road Trip USA is an amazing read. I've used a previous edition and this edition, now in full color, is filled with inspiring ideas as well as the practical, useful information you need to take a road trip. There's regional routes and bi-coastal routes all on two-lane highways. Amazing info and great photos and illustrations for armschair dreaming. I recommend this book to everyone.

HASH(0xa0f82198) out of 5 stars Fun for the Road March 4 2007
By RK Toyota - Published on
Format: Paperback
When you think of summer, and of freedom and adventure, you automatically think "road trip." Sometimes, you just want to jump into your car for a day trip and, other times, you'd love to trek around America for an entire summer. Some trips you know exactly where you're going and what you plan to see and, other times, you go where the spirit of travel leads you.

In Jamie Jensen's book, Road Trip USA: Cross Country Adventures on America's Two-Lane Highways, we're given quality information on fun places to visit, including places where celebrities stayed, restaurants with apple pie tasty enough for a visit (or two!) and scenic locations worth seeing just for their sheer beauty.

Trivia, myths and legends provided in the book makes trips even more entertaining. The tips of where to take photographs are terrific and provide a road trip traveler the chance to easily capture the most interesting sights for friends and family back home.

I like how Jensen covers 35,000 miles of road tripping in just one book and we appreciate his color-coded routes. Nobody likes getting lost and he pays attention to the smallest details that provide travelers comfort, including the call numbers of local radio stations.

Get off the major highways and use Jensen's book for eleven road trips that you'll never forget!

HASH(0xa0d221d4) out of 5 stars Used it on our 10,000 mile vacation Aug. 24 2006
By C. Brown - Published on
Format: Paperback
We drove over ten thousand miles in the last two months going acros the country on Route 2 and returning on Route 20 plus many side trips and some time in the Maritime Provicences. I drove and my wife read about what was coming. We found it fairly handy. Many of his resturant suggestions were very good. We found several errors like the address for a resturant listed that turned out to be an old garage on a graveled back street one block long.
