I really feel like whoever does these studies doesn't like Delaware!
WalletHub has just come out with their list of the Best & Worst States for Summer Road Trips, judging the 50 states on 33 key metrics for road trips, in areas of costs, safety and activities. With all that in mind, North Carolina tops the list for summer road trips, scoring a 57.57 out of 100 and landing in the Top Ten for both cost and activities.
If keeping costs down is of a particular concern to you, stick to Wyoming, which is tops in that area, although second overall. And when it comes to activities, California is number one, although overall it actually lands pretty low at 33.
