The catch is, however, they have specifically stated that they want to experience the region by automobile (since they have heard that is how most North Americans prefer to travel)…and they only have 7 days for this road trip!  On top of that, they have demanded the following:

 

 

 

1.     The trip must include a “stop” at a place in at least ten (10) U.S. states and four (4) Canadian provinces or territories.

 

2.     They want to visit at least 2 different places per day.

 

3.     They do not want to travel more than 400 miles between stops/places.  (Even though you will be doing all of the driving—so that they can sleep or view the landscape, etc., of course—they don’t want to spend “all day” in the car.)

 

 

 

So, your task is to put together a detailed itinerary (including a map of the route) for this great North American road trip.  For each day on the itinerary, you must state which places you will be stopping at (and which state or province it’s in) and provide a brief justification (at least 3-4 sentences) for why you have chosen that place to be part of this road trip.  In each justification you should explain how that place exemplifies one of the North American defining characteristics (i.e., “themes” as given in chapter 1) OR one of the major characteristics of a particular region within North America (e.g., Megalopolis, etc.).  As always, you must properly cite ALL sources that you use to help support your justifications
(including your textbook).  You must also include the number of miles that you will drive from place to place. (Hint: You can do this using Google Maps:
http://maps.google.com).  Finally, you must also provide a single map of North America on which you have highlighted the route that will be taken (as closely as possible, but it does not have to be 100% accurate).  Each stop/place should also be labeled on the map.  Remember, the more satisfied these clients are, the more $$$ you will make!  (No pressure! J)  Good luck!

 

 

 

A hard copy of your typed itinerary and the map should be submitted in class on the date announced.  Late assignments will be penalized as stated on the course syllabus.
