Road Trip – more Americans can go more places, more easily and safer than any population in the world – click to enlarge

The United States Interstate highway system is a unique American Cultural phenomenon.

Initiated as a civil defense tool by President Eisenhower after seeing the autobahns built in NAZI Germany in World War Two, our interstate highway system spans across the country east, west, north and south. It allows everyone to see every corner of our beautiful country if they choose.

Because Americans are one of the most prosperous people in history, travel to all of these great places is available to higher percentage of our population than any other country in the world.

And, with the safest environment for travel – few bandits, drug cartels, Muslim extremist or communist countries to rob, beat, behead or imprison you, there are no better choices around the world.

Just think of the Road Trips you can take –

  • Key West Florida
  • Gulf Shores Alabama
  • The Alamo in San Antonio Texas

  • Tennessee and Kentucky has mountains, music and beautiful and some great cities
  • Squeaking of cities, the east coast oozes American History – Boston MS, New York NY, Philadelphia PA, Washington DC, Richmond VA, Charleston SC , Saint Augustine FL and many, many more.
