  • Trek America Road Trip

When you think of a road trip through the USA, your mind will probably wander to that big ole' canyon in Arizona, the dazzling lights that sweep across Vegas and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in everyone's favourite city, San Francisco.

There is no doubt about it, the above places are great. But, what about those random places that you come across out of the blue? The places that your tour leader has known about since you set off, but has been keeping it a secret, knowing full well it will put a great big smile across your face as soon as you lay eyes on it.

With that in mind, we've chosen the top 10 most random places you didn't expect to see on a road trip...
