It is summer and one of America’s favorite pastimes during this season is road tripping. But, road trips can be expensive you aren’t smart about planning them. Wallethub recently did a study and found the best and worst travel destinations for your road trip this summer. They used three key dimensions: 1) Costs, 2) Safety and 3) Activities and they evaluated those dimensions over 22 relevant metrics. If you are interested in learning how they scored and weight everything then head to their website. The list below are the top-6 road trip destinations for this summer.
(1 = Best)
|State||Total Score||‘Costs’ Rank||‘Safety’ Rank||‘Activities’ Rank|
Drum roll please…..And number 6 on this is……TEXAS
As a Texan, I have experienced first-hand what a great state this is to road trip. We have canyons, rolling plains, rivers, lakes, and even a coast along with some islands in the gulf.
The Outer Banks and the Great Smoky Mountains are just some of the attractions this great state has to offer. Take a stroll through the Biltmore Estates or stroll down the beaches, but be sure to take some time to visit North Carolina this summer.
The Pacific Northwest is stunning and Washington boasts some pretty impressive sites. From Mount Rainier to the Space Needle to Olympic National Park, you will never runout of things to do here.

Want to see a volcano? Then head on over to Crater Lake in Oregon and take a look. Head to Portland for some micro brews and fantastic food or relax at one of the gorgeous hotels.
