Sights to See: Northeast United States Edition

Our Favorite Stops in the Northeast

A major benefit of living like a trucker is the mass opportunity to visit landmarks all across the country, giving themselves the immense opportunity to do some serious sightseeing that would make any traveler jealous! Sightseeing is a great way for drivers to spend their mandated breaks between long hours, haul layovers, or if they are suffering from any of the downsides of long-haul driving discussed in our previous blog, Long-Haul Driving Can be a Challenge.
