This year may come to be remembered as the moment the great American road trip made its comeback. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are turning to car-based trips to avoid planes during a time when air travel feels riskier.

In July, The Harris Poll found around two-thirds of Americans say they'll probably be taking more road trips this year to avoid airline travel because of COVID-19. After all, it's easier to control and sanitize the environment in your own vehicle.

This fall could present the perfect opportunity to get away on a road trip vacation. Head for a scenic drive or go camping to see leaves change colors in bright red and orange hues. Or drive to a new city, but be sure to research the destination's COVID-19 restrictions ahead of time.

Here are some tips for enjoying an awesome autumn trip by car.
