6 Reasons Why You Should Group Trip Your Way Through America
Get ready for an adventure of a life time...
Planning a solo road trip can be daunting for many reasons, not least because it’s literally impossible to know all of the best places to stop at.
But between seeing way more than you would on a normal single destination holliday and making new friends, it's definitely worth considering taking the plunge and going solo.

So when MTV UK travelled from New Orleans to Las Vegas by joining a Trek America group, we had an adventure of a lfietime, and came up with more than a few convincing arguments as to why you should follow in our footsteps...
It’ll get you out of your comfort zone in the best possible way
You'll find you're way more adventurous when traveling with a group of people you've only known for five minutes than you would be with your own friends.
Be that person who says yes to everything, and you'll soon realise there's no reason not to follow all the opportunities that come your way (as long as it's safe, obvs).
You’ll get a huge amount of places ticked off your list in a short amount of time
Because you're travelling between two places that are almost 2,000 miles apart, you'll go through a huge amount of different towns each with their own history and sights that you'll get to see.
From Austin's music scene to the ever breathtaking Monument Valley, there's a huge variety
Making friends has never been so easy
Because you've not got your best friend with you to hide behind you'll soon find yourself making new friends and speaking to people you never would have otherwise.
Not only that but people are way more likekly to get chatting to you if you're not glued to someone else.
It’s entirely stress free
Traveling as part of an organised group means there's no stress about trying to make the sat nav work or using a back up compass.
Simply sit back and relax as you soak up each town and get writing that list of places you want to go back to one day.
There’s never a dull moment
Because you're always on the move, no two days will be the same - which means you won't even have a second to think about what you're missing on Twitter. There's nothing quite like the realistion you've survived not checking social media for two whole weeks.
Oh, and your Insta will thank you for it
Let’s be honest, if you’ve not got a good Insta pic out of it did it ever really happen? After nine days of driving from New Orleans to Las Vegas our grid had never looked better.
But also if you want to try out the whole ‘living in the moment and not through a lens’ thing then we guess that’s cool too.
