Who said road trips actually have to be on the road? Take a soaring tour above America's famous routes, country lanes, and long highways on a coast-to-coast excursion to some of the most majestic sights on Earth. From the Oregon Trail to the fields of Gettysburg, and from Mount Rushmore to the Grand Canyon, we visit some of our country's many roadside attractions. We also share the larger-than-life figures, tragic tales, and inspiring stories that give us a better sense of our country's long and winding journey to the nation we know today.
