20 Ways To Have The Best Road Trip Ever!

If you have never been on a road trip, you are missing out on some of America’s finest vacation destinations. A road trip may sound like an easy vacation plan, and it is because you get in your car and drive. However, there are a few dos and don’ts that we recommend so that you can have the best road trip vacation ever! Whether it is being prepared with snacks and games or packing for a trip into the mountains, we have tips that you should remember when you are prepping for the trip of a lifetime.

Food Passport

When you are on a road trip, the same fast food you can eat any day of the week when you are home is plain and boring. That is the opposite of what you want on your vacation. Every moment of your road trip can be spectacular and unique with a food passport.

Before you head out on your road trip, search for restaurants that are not part of a chain or is only a regional chain for the area you are visiting. Make a personalized food passport with the places you intend to visit inside. Keep a record of the date and time of your visit and grab a To-Go Menu (if they have one) for your vacation scrapbook.

Cookie Sheet Travel Tray

Cookie Sheet activity trays are useful for children on vacation. They are great when you are traveling with adults too.

Attach a magnet to the bottom of snack cups so that the magnets can attract and stick to the cookie sheet. Sudden stops won’t result in sudden spills.

License Plate Bingo

If you are traveling long distances and fear that you might nod off at the wheel without some fun with friends or family to keep you awake and paying attention, license plate bingo is the game to keep you alert for the long drive. Up the stakes with a fabulous prize for the winner to keep everyone motivated to play.

Play Movie Soundtracks

While you are on the road, it is tempting to listen to audiobooks or channel surf for different radio stations. We have a better suggestion. Choose your vacation theme and play the movie soundtrack that best fits your vacation. You can choose an action adventure or a romantic theme depending on your companion for this trip.

If you shoot video out the windshield, the video will capture the soundtrack playing on your stereo. You won’t have to go back and edit out the car noise or add a soundtrack of your own.
