I’m moving cross country in just a few short weeks. Our house is for sale, we are selling everything in it, and hoping to spend some time visiting this sites from California to North Carolina. Not having been to many states for any extended period of time, I don’t really know the big tourist draws for each state so I’ve been researching them online. In my search I’ve come across some great websites and apps to plan my trip. From the Hoover Dam to the World’s Biggest Ball of Twine, I’ve got the must-sees on my map plus the little offbeat favorites. Planning a road trip this summer? Check out these apps that will help make the most of every mile!
