It’s also a good idea to plan your trip out ahead of time to help you take more direct routes to destinations-and to help ensure you see all the sites an area offers. Families can even find Web sites dedicated to planning memorable-but fuel-efficient-road trips all across the country.
For instance, Goin6.com, from Motel 6, helps vacation seekers plan a one-tank trip and use their hard-earned dollars toward fun activities and gasoline, rather than on accommodations.
Following on the heels of the recently announced Jazz Journey, the site’s newest series of trips takes travelers through historic American sites along the Eastern Seaboard, California wine country and theme parks, and some of America’s best-known national parks.
The site helps road trippers and other travelers plan a great trip by organizing the information included on the site into helpful “Eat,” “Sleep” and “Do” feature tabs.
Each featured journey includes Motel 6 locations along the way that provide comfortable and affordable accommodations that offer savings of $40 to $60 a night when compared to mid-scale hotels.
The site’s highlighted national park trips include tours through Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Zion National Park and more.
Travelers are guided through canyons, lakes, trails and mountain peaks and directed toward highlights and activities in and around each of these parks, including hiking, rock climbing and whitewater rafting.
Other trips include stops in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland; an exploration of Southern California’s theme parks with stops at Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, Disneyland, SeaWorld and many more.
