American Road® magazine's current issue delivers more than thirty prehistoric places to visit to fuel your next road trip. Many of these attractions offer dinosaur-sized fun at low or no admission price.
Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
The first issue of the ninth volume—an issue informally called AMERICAN ROAD’s “Dinosaur-Sized Edition”—contains some fifty percent more pages than the issues of the magazine’s earliest era. According to Executive Editor Thomas Repp, “AMERICAN ROAD® magazine’s current issue delivers more than thirty prehistoric places to visit to fuel your next road trip. Many of these attractions offer dinosaur-sized fun at low or no admission price.”
The lead feature—“Jurassic Lark: Driving the Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Highway”—explores the largest scenic byway showcased to date, a rocky, rolling romp 512 miles in length that loops around Utah and Colorado, catching compelling destinations in its claws. Travelers can weigh the provocative wisdom of naturalist Edward Abbey as they stroll around the sandstone circles of Arches National Park.
“AMERICAN ROAD’s Dinosaur Drive” appears as the latest ensemble piece. Eleven of AMERICAN ROAD’s best authors investigate twenty-four dinosaur-famous sites around the US and Canada, from the one-of-a-kind archaeopteryx fossil at Wyoming’s Dinosaur Center to the toothy mouth of the megalodon display at North Carolina’s Aurora Fossil Museum. California’s La Brea Tar Pits and Virginia’s Dinosaur Land earned independent places among the antediluvian features.
Atop this bedrock the department editors toss additional alluring bones. They visit the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, San Solomon Springs, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, and the Lincoln Highway’s Fossil Cabin. “Route 66 Kicks!” author Jerry McClanahan goes so far as to shape a fossil-fuel tour of the Mother Road through Oklahoma and eastern Texas.
AMERICAN ROAD® recently unveiled a new and improved website, Americanroadmagazine.com, that enables better navigation and provides tools for the visitor to find that roadside attraction, locate that vintage motel, discover that hidden landmark, and make new memories on the road less traveled. Readers will find sponsored downloadable trip itineraries that make travel planning a breeze, as well as the AMERICAN ROAD® Forums—the ultimate road trip community.
