Hit the road: 9 great American road trips

With the delta variant making people weary of flying again, once again, people are looking for safe, fun and adventures. Many Americans are still inclined to travel domestically for the time being. Hitting the highways and byways for a week-long or weekend adventure could be a great way to satisfy your need to travel. Tripavisor, the world's largest travel guidance platform, has mapped out a list of 9 top-notch U.S. road trips to last you past Labor Day weekend.

9.  The Great Northwest: Spend 7 days traveling from Portland, Oregon to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Explore waterfalls, hiking trails, the Oregon Trail (not the video game where you die of dysentary) and Native American sites.
