In our final post about the World Travels of U.S. Presidents, we reveal the travel accomplishments of Presidents George H.W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. We will also announce the winner of the most traveled U.S. President and the most traveled political party. The answers may surprise you!
Thanks to the U.S. Department of State Office of the Historian, we have put together maps showing the World Travels of U.S. Presidents. Over the next week or two follow along and you'll see who wins the prize as the most traveled U.S. President. All of the maps will be put on our Pinterest Page for easy access and viewing. The maps were created using Travel Goal Getter iPad App, available in the app store.
Well that does it! The most traveled U.S. President is two Presidents - Clinton and George W. Bush.
Now which political party travels the most? Let me first say that of the last 19 U.S. Presidents that have traveled overseas, the last 4, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama have accounted for over 50% of the total presidential travel since Theodore Roosevelt made the first presidential visit abroad in 1906. Back to our final question - which political party is the most traveled? Technically, the republican party has visited more at 225 countries visited but they have had one more President in office.
When you average countries visited, democrat presidents have visited 22.22 countries per president while republican presidents have the slight edge at 22.50 countries visited per president. Nearly a tie!
