Take a road trip through literary New England

American Road Trips, Riel articles & publicity — By on May 25, 2009 at 7:28 am

Americans love road trips, and Memorial Day is the traditional kickoff to the summer travel season. So many of the trips we take, though, are to visit national parks or beaches. These are classic journeys and there’s nothing at all wrong with them. But why confine yourself to a traditional road trip? With so many amazing sights and so many miles of roads meandering across the continent, the possibilities are endless for crafting journeys to fit almost any imaginable interest.

To that end, I created my own version of a literary road trip through New England. It brings you to the towns of ten authors, from Mark Twain and Henry David Thoreau to Jack Kerouac and Robert Frost, among others. Along the way, you’ll also encounter some of the prettiest landscapes in the region.

You can read my description of the journey here, and use this Google map to follow along or to plot your own version of this trip.
