Pick Your Route
But keep a loose plan! There are three main routes to take — north, south, or straight through the middle. Making sure that you take the best route for you is the most important part of the cross-country trip planning process. So, how do you choose? It all depends on what you want to see. Maybe you want to drive through the deep South, along the dusty roads of Texas, or the red rocks in Utah. Whatever it is, choose wisely!
