Sure, we love plane hopping as much as the next person, but nothing beats a summer road trip. It鈥檚 the best way to see incredible scenery and enjoy attractions that are off the beaten path. Whether you鈥檙e looking for a new state to explore this season or you鈥檙e just curious about how your state measures up, we鈥檝e got all the details you need to know. We鈥檙e sharing Wallet Hub鈥檚 ranking of all 50 states in order of how road trip-worthy they are, and the results may surprise you.


The top and bottom-ranked states are from all regions of the country. The methodology of the ranking took into account the cost of driving and lodging, road conditions + safety and fun + scenic attractions. In a somewhat surprising move, national parks carry the same weight as amusement parks when it comes to attractions.
