It was 50-years ago this week that Apollo 11 left Earth
(more precisely – Kennedy Space Center, Florida) and took Neil Armstrong, Buzz
Aldrin and Michael Collins to the surface of the Moon.
They left Earth on the July 16th, 1969, and, four
days later, reached their destination. ‘One small step for man, one giant leap
for mankind’ was uttered, history was altered, and the Moon would become a
symbol of human endeavour and ingenuity.
To celebrate this feat, Hertz have put together an
epic journey of their own. Housed on the Hertz American Road Trip Planner
website, which offers over 30 bespoke routes to give you all the road trip
inspiration you’ll ever need, One Small Step
11 space-related stops over 2,636 miles from Washington to Texas (around a
tenth of the distance to the Moon).
These stops include:
The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum,
Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida
Space Center, Houston, Texas
With pitstops orbiting the likes
of New Orleans and Walt Disney World’s Epcot for good measure, and a drive
along the Blue Ridge Parkway, this is a road trip that is truly, well, out of
