Transcript of Road Trip

The Chosen Car
The 2013 Chevrolet Impala is a highly efficient car, making it the optimal one for long distance travel. The car holds 17.5 gallons of fuel in its tank, giving it a 30 MPG rating on highways; the car can go 525 miles on one tank of gas. Its interior provides comfort for up to six people simultaneously, in addition to large amounts of storage space. The car's easily readable controls and buttons provide navigational ease on the road. These features, especially the high gas mileage, make road trips much less complicated and prevent any unneeded conflicts on the highway.
Chosen Destination
Boston, Massachusetts is located in the east coast of the United States. It's conveniently placed near the Atlantic Ocean, which showcases multiple harbors. Boston's tourist attractions, like Faneuil Hall, the Paul Revere House, and Boston Common are both interesting and highly educational. Overall, the city is very diverse with mixed culture and within budget.

Lodging at Destination
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Downtown Boston is an affordable hotel, with rooms at $199 a night. The hotel is placed conveniently near Boston's transportation centers (ie. train stations, subways). Two double bed, non-smoking rooms are present to fit our party's needs. Additionally, the hotel provides a basketball court, running track, free transportation, a restaurant, and a lounge for comfort. Overall, it's clear that the hotel fits our party's need for a high level of comfort; it's amenities provide us with a hassle-free, three night trip in addition to an affordable one. Unfortunately, the hotel does not offer wi-fi or parking, but parking is available nearby.
