Any writer or at least a literary afficianado knows that the best office is the open road. The great American road trip has inspired many a brilliant author. From Jack Kerouac to Mark Twain, the long stretches of highway are the ultimate muse.
Atlas Obscura has created an epic map of the road trips our favorite authors took. The map includes over 1,500 entries from 12 books. Each entry includes thee author's description of that location.
So whether you're fixated on John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley or Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, get packed and experience the trip for yourself.
