Chevy Partnered With Acclaimed Data Scientist to Create Cross Country Road Trip

MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Have you ever wanted to take a road trip across the entire country? Now, you can. Chevy partnered with an acclaimed data scientist to create a cross country road trip for families heading on vacation this spring. Randy Olson developed a custom map using a specific algorithm that planned a route through all 48 contiguous states, stopping at some of America's favorite family destinations along the way.

A recent national survey held by Chevrolet found that spending time with family and exploring new places were U.S. parent's top two favorite parts about taking family road trips.

With less backtracking and less stress in mind, Olson designed this route in the most efficient approach. It was constructed in a way easiest for families to navigate.

If you were to take this daring journey around the states, you would spend a total of 214.56 hours behind the wheel and log 13,389 miles on the odometer, which does not include time or mileage for overnight breaks and any detours along the way.

"This map is designed so road trippers can start anywhere and drive as much or as little as they like," said Olson. "Across the U.S., people can create their perfect route, whether staying close to home or embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime 48-state journey."
