Did you know that 45% of Americans prefer road trips to other forms of travel? Some say it’s the freedom they find behind the wheel, while others claim it’s the opportunity to explore hidden gems.
Either way, the truth is, road trips continue to top the charts when it comes to vacation preferences.
And believe it or not, safety also plays a role in this decision; as the saying goes, there’s no place like home—and being in control of your own vehicle grants a sense of security while traveling.
What’s often not talked about is the bonding that occurs during a road trip; it’s a chance for families and friends to spend quality time together and make memories that will last for a lifetime.
As a main priority for many individuals, it’s no wonder road trips remain so popular. When you think about it, there’s something truly magical about hitting the open road; it offers a feeling of adventure and excitement that can rarely (or some would say never) be matched by other forms of travel.
The classic road trip will never go out of style
Some people were surprised when a recent study by the University of Michigan revealed that even with advances in transportation technology, road trips still hold a special place in people’s hearts.
And this is why it’s true that, despite our fast-paced world, the classic road trip will never go out of style. But one trend that is gaining mainstream popularity is going on a road trip in an EV.
As you can imagine, it’s very eco-friendly! Having an EV means less air pollution and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Our planet will definitely thank you for hopping on this green wagon. And…your wallet will thank you too. When it comes to fuel costs, EVs seriously beat traditional cars. You’ll be saving a ton on gas money, which means you can splurge on cute souvenirs, tasty drinks, and snacks. Not to mention, (given gas prices today) you might actually have some savings after the trip itself – all thanks to this amazing innovation of the 21st century.
What was also a total surprise to many was a news report from CBS showing that some folks have taken this love of road trips to the extreme— by visiting all 50 states in a single journey! It seems there’s no denying the allure of the open road; perhaps it’s time you planned your own adventure behind the wheel.
