One of the most memorable trips I have taken was the last road trip I’ve been on, which was a trip to Maryland, Delaware, and to Washington, DC. The road trip was taken in a Toyota Camry that was the best gas mileage car out of us that were going. We pilled 5 guys into the car and headed out. We used a Rand McNally road atlas (like the year 2000 version) to guide our way to the east. It was pretty fun trip to be on. We all were half tired and anything is funny when one is getting tired. We went the interstate pretty much the whole way there. And I forget who said it but they had quoted something along the lines of “Thanks to the highly developed interstate system people can now travel coast to coast and not see anything” which I found to be fairly true because on the way to the East Coast all I remember is seeing the Sears Tower and looking at all the road construction. We went to Maryland and spent a few nights there and drove into Delaware also. Then we went to Washington DC and spent a whole day touring there. Walking around for 10hrs is a bit tiring! We got to see the National Air and Space Museum which was sweet, along with the Capitol Building, World War Memorial, Reflecting Pond, and the Abraham Memorial. We had seen several other neat places too. Then we started on our way home, this time avoiding tolls which cost us around sixty dollars! We got to see a lot more scenery on the way home too which was nice. The trip was awesome and I would want to take my next trip to the West Coast.
