  • App Store Info


“Best Road Trip - Southwest” is a GPS-based travel app that takes you along a long, dusty stretch of Route 66, through the Grand Canyon and a wild range of topographic changes.

Thousands of photos, lots of video and tons of stories from the guys on the KCPT/PBS travel show, “Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations” and Detour Art. Perfect for anyone who loves to get in the car and explore!

You won’t find the “typical” spots found on most travel apps - no run-of-the-mill fast food joints (unless they have a UFO or giant being on the building). Any app can give you a phonebook listing of what’s in the area, Best Road Trip Ever gives you the hand-picked offbeat attractions that make taking the back roads a lot more fun!

“Best Road Trip - Southwest” features over 1,100 offbeat attractions, self-taught artists, sights, and eateries in the following states:
• Arizona
• Colorado
• New Mexico
• Oklahoma
• Texas

When you first open the app, you will find yourself on the map, surrounded (hopefully) by all sorts of offbeat distractions. Zoom in, touch the color-coded icon and find out more about whatever tickles your fancy. Not interested in foraging for food? You can also customize the screen to show only the categories you are interested in finding.

• Easy to use – just swipe to scroll through the listings, slide to pick categories, flick to see more photos. Tap any point to get more detail.

• Easy to search – Maps?  Listings? By name? Choose your way to search through the tons of geo-coded points of interest (POIs). Every listing is text-searchable, or pick a location and see what is around.  Street addresses and one-touch phone numbers.

Thousands of images – See what you are getting yourself into. (Be forewarned - the video clips look best over WiFi, and kinda skrtichy...aka low res...over 3G.)
