  • The US’ Route 66 is the most searched for road trip in the world with an annual search volume of 6.5 million. This famous road used to be the main route across the country. However, due to the development of other main roads, it became a quieter, more scenic way to cross America, which likely contributed to its popularity as a road trip. 

 
  • The Californian adventure, Big Sur is second with over 4.6 million searches annually.

 
  • With over 3.3 million searches, the third most popular road trip right now is The Great Dolomites Road trip. It is a road located in Italy between Bolzano and Cortina d’Ampezzo that travels right across the mountain range and allows road trippers to take in some spectacular views along the way.

 
  • The United States is the global road trip leader where half of the world’s ten best road trips are found, followed by Italy, which has two of the most picturesque routes in the world.
