What's Inside

Hop on Your Couch and Take a Road Trip

The puzzles in these books were designed to enhance a real road trip or help armchair travelers hit the virtual road. The book is comprised of 80% word-search puzzles and a balance of crosswords, matchups, fill in the blanks, true/false, and other puzzle types. We have used word searches to make the experience as informative and fun as possible. With over 550 word-search puzzles across the series and 12 words per puzzle, we have been able to identify over 5,000 points of interest, people, and events to alert travelers of all ages to new discoveries around every turn in the road. The Applewood team has made sure to balance your discoveries with a diversity of well-known, little-known, out-of-the-way, and wondrous stops. In addition, we have been careful to make sure that these journeys are inclusive and fun for all people. We want to help discover everybody's America.

The order of the puzzles follows the starred stops on the map at the beginning of each road trip. The routes are circular, so readers can start anywhere along the route and experience the journey from wherever they like. As a bonus, the books include other interesting general travel-related puzzles to entertain travelers between the stops. Whether puzzlers are in their car in the future or on their couch today, they are sure to discover unique, curious, and inspiring places through our puzzles.
