Berkeley, CA (April 2009) – Avalon Travel is pleased to announce the release of Road Trip USA: Cross-Country Adventures on America’s Two-Lane Highways, the new edition of Jamie Jensen’s best-selling book, along with two pocket guides, Road Trip USA Route 66 and Road Trip USA Pacific Coast Highway.
This spring and summer—rather than hitting the tarmac for an international locale—travelers are looking to save money; taking notice of declining gas prices, and opting to discover America the old-fashioned way—on the road. With 11 road trips to choose from, and coverage of classic American terrain including the Appalachian Trail, Atlantic Coast, and Oregon Trail, Road Trip USA steers adventurers to major cities like San Francisco and Chicago as well as remote, but charming all-American towns like Thermopolis, Wyoming and Chandler, Oklahoma. Jensen’s road-tested advice also leads to popular attractions such as Disneyland, Yellowstone National Park, Niagara Falls, and the Statue of Liberty. Complete with local lore, oddball trivia, roadside curiosity, and noteworthy details along with recommendations on where to stop, what to see, and where to eat and sleep, Road Trip USA is the guide that gets travelers off the beaten path and driving into the soul of America.
Other features of this edition include:
• A flexible network of route combinations, color-coded and extensively cross-referenced to allow for hundreds of possible itineraries
• More than 125 detailed driving maps
• Full-color interior with modern and vintage photos and illustrations
• A road trip resources section with helpful information including contact information for popular hotel and motel chains, car rental companies, state tourism boards, and road condition centers
