Places missed on the ‘perfect’ Northeast road trip
  If you could take a road trip through any area of the U.S., where would you go?

What’s the perfect road trip? Chevrolet tries to find out
My perfect road trip was from southeast Texas to Crested Butte, Colorado. I was eight years old and my family planned our first ever ski trip, and decided to make a 16-hour drive to the Rockies instead taking a flight. To make our drive more enjoyable, my parents transformed the car into a miniature play zone/paradise, installing a portable TV and video games, and flattened the back seat out so we could fully stretch out our legs instead of having to sit the whole trip. The gesture turned our road trip into a memory we’ll remember for the rest of… Read More

  As a teenager with a busy after-school schedule, I waited eagerly for September 17, 2008 – my 16th birthday – to come so that I could finally get my driver’s license. My parents were ready, too; between choir practice, vocal lessons, dance team, basketball and church, it was practically a full-time job wheeling me around town.
