My Thoughts

Like with many of the books from National Geographic, 100 Drives, 5000 Ideas: Where to Go, When to Go, What to Do, What to See is filled with beautiful photography that makes you want to jump right into the scene.

Each drive gives the reader ideas of where to go and what to do and see along the way. I love that they’ve added in the distance, drive time, the best season to visit, and some highlights so you can plan accordingly. There are also some facts included for each place, like historical knowledge or types of wildlife in the area.

This book is such a great resource for anyone who loves road trips and adventures, and it came just in time for summer planning. I’m excited to try out some of these drives this summer and I see myself looking to this book for travel ideas in years to come.
