What makes a great road trip? A few years ago, my family drove from our home in Kentucky to St. Louis, took a right, and then a left at Sioux Falls, and drove to Idaho, and then back again. We visited my husband’s cousin, the St. Louis Arch, my college, the 1880 Town, the sculptures of Murdo, the Corn Palace, the presidents’ statues in Rapid City, Badlands National Park, Wall Drug, Devils Tower, Yellowstone National Park, Mount Rushmore, Sturgis, a gemstone mine, and his mother. We called it the Great American Road Trip. If you want to limit your time and mileage to a weekend, there are plenty of scenic routes that go to out-of-the-way places and let you make memories. Outside Online details eleven of their staff’s favorites routes for a memorable road trip in North America, in places ranging from Florida to British Columbia, but mostly doable in one weekend, or even in one day. -via Digg
