    by Colin Miller
    June 2006
    It's time to put fuel in your tank and load up the kids. Driving vacation season is upon us. Yes, fuel prices are higher than ever, but if you're careful, you can save a few gallons on your trip by choosing efficient routing, and avoid wasted gas while you try to get "unlost"!

    Here are a few sites that offer free driving directions:

    Maporama This site is European based, but can do directions (called Itineraries) for anywhere in the world. Great results and they can be resized.

    Googlemaps is an excellent site. Also offers the option to see a satellite view of your route!

    mapquest is another good site.

    MapPoint This site will even give you roadwork information on the route they plan for you.

    The way to use these sites is to simply enter your beginning and ending cities (sometimes even specific addresses) and click the button to start. You'll be given the route. In some cases you can even choose by fastest or shortest. They are very accurate and can be valuable in planning a driving vacation.
    Have fun and drive safe!
