For decades, the quintessential USA road trip has been romanticised in novels and movies. Think: 2002 American comedy-drama Crossroads starring Britney Spears, or the Farrelly brothers’ classic Dumb & Dumber.
While it may sound like a cliche, a USA road trip is truly an experience to have at least once in your life. After all, it’s the best way to experience the diverse states and marvel at the beautiful landscapes of the USA. All you need to do is take at least two weeks off work, book plane tickets in and out from opposite ends of the country, rent a car, and see where the roads take you.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best cross-country road trips to take in the USA. The next time you’re in the country, just hop into a car (or RV, for nostalgic purposes), curate your own personal Spotify playlist, have Google Maps on standby, and start driving.
