California coast top trip in DriveAway survey

California coast top trip in DriveAway survey

Los Angeles to San Francisco was the most popular drive in the USA across all traveller types, according to a major survey of New Zealand and Australian travellers by DriveAway.

In particular it was most popular for those lone wolf travellers – great for some reflective soul searching along the west coastline of the USA – with 38% of lone wolf travellers landing on this drive. The result came after DriveAway quizzed over 4500 travellers on their individual travel preferences. Near the top was San Antonio to New Orleans, which was the chosen drive for 21% of all people who took part in the quiz, and also the most popular drive for 33% of couples travelling together. In the ‘friends travelling together’ category 30% of travellers nominated Los Angeles to Las Vegas. For this group of travellers Route 66 came in a close second on 26%. The road trip most suited to families travelling was Miami to Orlando. With theme parks like Universal and Disney, this drive was recommended by 32% of family travellers. On the other end of the scale were families who nominated a Canadian road trip – a more relaxed and scenic type of holiday. www.driveaway.co.nz
