Our Best Towns maps lays out point-to-point routes between our 64 favorite towns in America.

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.

Our mission to inspire readers to get outside has never been more critical. In recent years, Outside Online has reported on groundbreaking research linking time in nature to improved mental and physical health, and we’ve kept you informed about the unprecedented threats to America’s public lands. Our rigorous coverage helps spark important debates about wellness and travel and adventure, and it provides readers an accessible gateway to new outdoor passions. Time outside is essential—and we can help you make the most of it. Making a financial contribution to Outside Online only takes a few minutes and will ensure we can continue supplying the trailblazing, informative journalism that readers like you depend on. We hope you’ll support us. Thank you.
