You can track the team's progress and find more information about each of the towns on the Best of the Road web site; www.bestoftheroad.com.

"This special will put our viewers in the driver's seat as they take this unprecedented journey alongside three of the teams participating in this cross country adventure," said Andy Singer, GM, Travel Channel. "We are thrilled to hitch a ride on this road trip and explore and celebrate America's best small town destinations."
