Find the Best Maps and Sites for Travelers

Sightsee and construct bucket lists with Roadtrippers

Adventure: hitting the road and discovering the best this country has to offer.

Tragedy: traveling from strip mall to strip mall.

Roadtrippers plots the quickest route between two points, but adds a corridor in which to discover history, nature, attractions, entertainment, and more. Choose an exploration radius as small as ten miles off the beaten path or as large as, well, the entire map.

The website (a mobile version is in the works) has prepopulated categories that drop pins on everything from filming locations and architectural gems to boutique hotels and local dining favorites. As points of interest are added to your itinerary, Roadtrippers updates the trip’s total distance, duration, and estimated gas costs.

Maps can be saved and modified, so you can work tirelessly planning the perfect ramble. When finished, print step-by-step directions and share the itinerary via a link that updates along with your changing plans.

Leaving you with a clear-cut thriller.
