About the Book

Now in its sixth edition, Jamie Jensen's best-selling Road Trip USA is better than ever. Inside, you’ll find cross-country routes and road-tested advice for adventurers who want to see the parts of America that the interstates have left behind. Jensen also includes mile-by-mile highlights celebrating major cities, obscure towns, popular attractions, roadside curiosities (if you’re looking for the world’s largest jackalope, you’re in luck), local lore, and oddball trivia. With full coverage of more than 35,000 miles of classic blacktop, Road Trip USA will take you off the beaten path and into the heart of America.

Features include:

  • A flexible network of route combinations, extensively cross-referenced to allow for hundreds of possible itineraries
  • Essential tips for the road: survival guides for two dozen cities, call letters of the liveliest radio stations, and details on where to eat and sleep
  • More than 140 meticulously detailed maps

About Jamie Jensen
Jamie Jensen has been immersed in road-trip culture from an early age, thanks to a childhood spent drinking drive-in milk shakes and riding roller coasters in Los Angeles—before everything was torn down. After dropping in and out of college, Jamie took a three-year odyssey hitchhiking around the country, making hay in Kansas, painting houses in Boston, sailing boats on the Chesapeake Bay, and living in the storeroom of a Manhattan music studio. He returned to California and earned a degree in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, then moved to England, where he began writing about America. He now lives with his wife Catherine and restless twins Tom and Alex in Albany, California.
