The Great American Road Trip

It’s summer!  Vacation time!  And what’s more American than traveling this beautiful country and seeing what’s beyond the horizon.  And what better time than the Fourth of July to contemplate the great American road trip.

As much as air travel has grown, there’s nothing quite like getting in our own cars, trucks, or RVs and hitting the road.  We may be going to visit family and friends or taking them along to discover something new or visit some place familiar.

Whether you’re planning a trip and wanting to do some research or maybe just wanting a bit of armchair travel, check out some of the DVDs listed below.  You may be longing to see natural wonders and historic sites.  Or you may want to visit cities for their history, arts, culture, or just to soak up the atmosphere.  In any case, you’ll find America a wonderful place to explore, no matter how you get there.
