As the country begins to reopen, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.
We’ve devised an interactive Best Towns 2015 road trip map that connects all 64 burgs from our contest in one of the most incredible cross-country road trips possible (and then some, with Hawaii and Alaska). Tap or place your cursor over each of the towns and a box will appear with highlights from each place.
The routes we’ve singled out will get you from point A to point B in the quickest time possible—but by all means, meander, get lost, or go out of bounds. Maybe you’ll happen upon an undiscovered town worthy of being in our contest next year.
