Explore the biggest trips in the USA with a small carbon footprint in National Geographic Traveller (UK)’s latest guide 


Explore the biggest trips in the USA with a small carbon footprint in National Geographic Traveller (UK)’s latest guide 

The mighty Mississippi, Route 66, the Wild West — America’s biggest draws need little in the way of introduction, having long captured imaginations across the globe. But, in some ways, big isn’t always best — at least where carbon footprints are concerned. That’s why the National Geographic Traveller (UK) USA guide focuses on how to see the country’s greatest hits without the correspondingly large environmental cost.  

Georgia Stephens, editor of the USA guide, out now with the March issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK), said: “This is classic America, but not as you’ve seen it before”. 

The cover story illustrates how it’s possible to tread lightly while still seeing the very best of the US — with travelling sustainably a key trend in recent years. Almost a century after it was created, America’s most celebrated road trip can now be driven in its entirety by electric vehicle; a new tour offers the chance to paddle to musical Memphis; you can float over Napa in a hot air balloon; or see the Grand Canyon from the saddle.  

Also in this issue, we discover the human stories behind New Jersey’s iconic diners; the humble beginnings of country music in Virginia; the unlikely roots of the Californian wine industry; and how creatives are forging a new Wild West without sacrificing their traditions.
