Brush up on your music knowledge, practice your ‘yeehaws’ and your ‘howdys’, and bring your beach gear and taste for adventure on road trip from Chicago to Miami. Cross the northern ridge of the United States, taking in the metropolises of Chicago, Detroit, New York, and the natural wonders of Niagara Falls and Finger Lakes. Get historical in Washington D.C., wind across the Appalachians, through the musical hub of Memphis, and on to New Orleans. Watch the ocean flash by as you drive the endless highway to Key West and seek out a six-toed cat before you dance the night away in Miami. This is the east coast done right.
