Road trips are a national pastime, and planning them is no small feat. So let me ask you, when was the last time you took a road trip? Sometimes, a trip isn't about the destination, but the journey to it. That's why I love a good road trip once in a while.

If you're planning a road trip, these days you'll probably log onto Google or Apple Maps, enter your destination and get a route laid out for you. And while planning your route to swing by America's greatest sights like Mount Rushmore or visiting the Everglades is part of the fun, the best road trip has already been planned for you. Researchers have just created the greatest route of all time, according to science.

Thanks to a complicated algorithm created by Discovery News and Michigan State University doctoral student Randy Olson, the "Perfect American Road Trip" includes 50 stops in all 48 contiguous states and includes some amazing sights along the way. Start at the point nearest to you and follow it all the way across the country and back.

What are you waiting for? The adventure of a lifetime awaits you!
