Map of the Week:  Roadtrippers

Why we like it: Roadtrippers bills itself as a “simple and intuitive road trip planner that helps you discover, plan and book the best places and experiences along your way, curated by local experts and travel writers” and their approach sure works.

Roadtrippers lets you build itineraries within the US through a simple map interface, and store them on their site.

Their interfaces uses the Autocomplete feature of the Places Library and the Directions Service to let you create multi-waypoint trips, as well as calculate gas mileage and time the drive would take.

They also let you search for places along the way that would be good to visit.

They also have great guides for finding areas to visit.

This combination of features makes it a great site to plan your travel.
