Skip the Fast Food
Eating local is one of the best ways to have a full road trip experience (literally) and sample the specialities of each state you're passing through. Although it may be convenient to stop by the typical roadside fast-food joints, don't! Dig into the best of what each town has to offer. Indulge in some southern BBQ, the city's favorite pizza, or that buzz-worthy spot the guy at the last gas station suggested.
