Here’s the Google Maps of the route:       Here’s the full list of cities in order: If you’d like to customize your own road trip, I’ve released the Python code I used in this project with an open source license and instructions for how to optimize your custom road trip. I’ve made another version for Europe here and for South America here.I also made a road trip for Michigan, and optimized walking tours for NYC and Philadelphia. The saying goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Really, that’s not true.After less than a minute, the genetic algorithm reached a near-perfect solution that makes a complete trip around the U. But worry not, for I created a second road trip just for you! Note: Again, there’s an extra stop in Cleveland to force the route between New Hampshire and Michigan to stay in the U. But really, Cleveland is a nice city to stop in (ranked #53 on Trip Advisor).The road trip below stops at the Trip Advisor-rated Best City to Visit in every contiguous U. This road trip will more-or-less follow the same path as the major U. landmarks trip, covering a slightly shorter 12,290 mile (19,780 km) route around the U. Some larger states — like California and Texas — may have multiple cities you’d like to visit, so it’s probably worthwhile to stop at other larger cities along the route.
With the list of landmarks in hand, the next step was to find the “true” distance between all of the landmarks by car.

The workforce is changing as businesses become global and technology erodes geographical and physical barriers.
Except this time, we needed to look up 2,450 directions to get the “true” distance between all 50 landmarks — a monumental task if we had to do it by hand.
Thankfully, the Google Maps API makes this information freely available, so all it took was a short Python script to calculate the distance and time driven for all 2,450 routes between the 50 landmarks.
