One of the biggest challenges of going on a road trip is planning the trip. It’s important to make sure you don’t miss any attractions along the way, but drivers also need to stay focused to arrive at their destinations in a timely manner. People who take road trips struggle with either one or the other issue and this website will help with both. Roadtrippers is a fantastic resource for those who want to get the most out of their road trip and need a little extra help with the planning.
Roadtrippers will ask for an origin and a destination and then generate the areas of interest in between. The website will help users choose which attractions are can’t-miss and which ones they’re going to drive by. It also shows estimated times of how long someone generally spends at the attraction or landmark, which helps to plan the driving portion.
Besides planning the trip, the website also has trip guides for popular trips that include lots of sights to see. These pre-planned trips are good for those struggling to plan their own. It’s a way to get ideas and learn about places you weren’t aware of. After planning the trip, Roadtrippers will present the trip as a PowerPoint with all the states and major attractions highlighted. This presentation can be shared with others and gives friends and family a way to see what’s happening.
