Notice how you have the option of planning a road trip for an RV or a car. Since I’ll be going via Honda Civic, I selected “Auto Travel.”

Here’s my trip all worked out! I can see based on the shaded portion of the route that there are quite a few activities and sites worth stopping for. Powell Gardens, the Battle of Lexington Site, Arrow Rock — it’s all there! You can even filter the planner based on a particular category. 

Roadtrippers has these main categories…

Attractions & culture, food & drink and points of interest let you further narrow your interests down with sub-categories. For example, attractions & culture has options for amusement parks, museums and winter attractions. Pretty neat, huh?

(I’m sure glad that people seemed to like the Nelson-Atkins, because I love it!)
