The history of family road trips with historian Susan Rugh

    With record-high gas prices the family road trip may be a relic from the past. We take a trip down memory lane and look at the history of the middle-class family summer vacation when the parents and kids piled into the car and traveled along the hiways and byways of a post-WWII America. Our guest is SUSAN SESSIONS RUGH author of “Are We There Yet? The Golden Age of American Family Vacations.”
