Ah, the good old all-American road trip.
It brings images of dad behind the wheel of a station wagon, wearing a button-down shirt and hat, mom in seldom-worn slacks and a scarf wrapped gently around her hair, and the kids playing games and sharing stories in the back seat.
There’s a picnic basket full of sandwiches wrapped in wax paper and bottles of soda pop. And everyone’s singing campy songs and perfect memories are made.
Well, it’s not 1962 anymore, and this is probably not how most road trips go for today’s families.
But there is good news.
Despite the backseat fighting, the enormous data bills for the kids’ phones, and the incessant nagging of the GPS (recalculating!), you can still experience some of the most popular family travel spots of yesteryear.
