It's summer and that means it's prime vacation season. Many people are now beginning to plan their trips for the summer whether they are traveling abroad or taking a good old fashioned road trip. When I am planning a vacation, I like to do research on my destination to see what are the best places to go and eat and maybe even some stops to make along the way. Here are five Youtube channels that can help you plan your trip and are fun to watch based on the type of trip you might be taking.
Jake the Carpetbagger focuses many of his videos on quirky roadside attractions. He drives everywhere he goes and has featured many interesting places on his journeys. He and another youtuber did a trip down Route 66, the ultimate road trip, and he also did a series of videos on his road trip from his hometown in North Carolina to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. These are just a couple examples of the various videos you can find on his channel.
The Bucket List Family
The Bucket List Family is a couple who are travel journalists that travel around the world with their three children. They have been to several different countries all of which are well documented on their channel. They also do volunteer work sometimes on their journeys and try to immerse themselves in the culture of the place as much as they can.
Traveling the States
Visit the USA
Visit the USA features videos of places all across the United States. Their videos range from road trips to places to eat to places to visit. The videos are also very short, so you will not have to worry about sifting through hours and hours of footage.
The Tim Tracker/The Daily Woo
The Tim Tracker focuses mainly on Disney World in Florida and branches out some into the other theme parks in Orlando. He and his wife do lots of videos in Disney World featuring the many festivals and new things going on in the park as well as popular attractions. The Daily Woo focuses on Disneyland in California. He, like the Tim Tracker, features the many things going on at Disneyland. He also branches out to other attractions as well and sometimes pairs up with other Youtubers like the Carpetbagger.
