Which famous family would Americans most like to go on a road trip with? The Obamas came in first, and acting couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner came in a close second, according to a recent survey conducted by Choice Hotels.
The survey asked more than 1,200 adults and a sample of more than 500 families who plan to travel with children this summer for their opinions about summer trips. Twenty-three percent of respondents chose the Obamas and 22% selected the Affleck-Garner clan. The family of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie came in third, chosen by 8% of the survey respondents.
More interesting are the celebrities who Americans wouldn't want to share a van with. Honey Boo-Boo's family (33%) and the Kardashians (21%) topped the least-favorite list.
Regardless of who they go with, kids had definite ideas about where they would want to go. In a different survey, Highlights for Children magazine last month asked kids how they would rank their top summer vacation destinations.
After that, the list includes Myrtle Beach, S.C.; the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, which is set to reopen July 4 after being damaged by Hurricane Sandy; the Florida Keys; the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, N.M.; the real White House in Washington; Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and Montana; the Grand Canyon in Arizona and the kitschy World's Largest Ball of Twine in Cawker City, Kan.
