This Friday is the first day of summer. So the website Wallet Hub just released its annual list of the best and worst states to take a summer road trip.
They base it on 33 different metrics, like traffic . . . gas prices . . . number of attractions . . . quality of the roads . . . and the weather. And this year, North Carolina took down Wyoming to snag the top spot.
Three new states also made the top ten: Virginia in 4th, Oregon in 8th, and Wisconsin in 10th place.
(Florida, Washington, and Coloradodropped outof the top ten.)
The top ten states to take a summer road trip in 2019 are: North Carolina . . . Wyoming . . . Minnesota . . . Virginia . . . Texas . . . New York . . . Louisiana . . . Oregon . . . Utah . . . and Wisconsin.
Rhode Island finished dead last again. Because does driving through a state that's37 mileswide even COUNT as a "road trip"?
The ten worst road trip states this year are: Rhode Island . . . Delaware . . . Connecticut . . . Hawaii . . . Arkansas . . . Indiana . . . Kansas . . . Mississippi . . . Alabama . . . and Montana.
