Planing A Fantastic Road Trip
With Covid still around travelers may be forgoing international destinations and opting for more local destinations. So if you still have the travel bug and are thinking of taking a road trip, here are our suggestions on how to plan an epic one!
Making The Plan:
WHERE TO GO?
Planning your stops will provide you a good idea of how long the overall trip will
take, and what your time on the road between destinations will be.
WHO TO TRAVEL WITH?
Guests on the road could make or break a trip. Pick wisely.
WHAT TO PACK?
Always pack light. There are laundry mats along the way and worse case
scenario there always a target.
WHAT’S THE BUDGET?
Gas. Food. Lodging. Tickets. Souvenirs. These are the basic things to consider.
IS THE VEHICLE IN GOOD SHAPE?
The best road trip car is a personal decision but whatever you drive, get your
vehicle checked out beforehand so you don't run into any mechanical trouble.
IS THE VEHICLE INSURED?
Make sure your insurance is up-to-date and have all your documents handy.
Choose Your Destination(s)
There are so many places in the USA to visit but here are our suggestions for cross country highways.
PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY. Also called "the 101," Stretching from Southern California to Washington State it has the most magnificent coastal scenery.
THE LONELIEST ROAD. From California to Maryland this highway goes through 12 states and three mountain ranges with all sorts of exciting stops along the way.
US 20. The longest highway in America, from Oregon to Massachusetts, goes through unique areas like ghost towns as well as Yellowstone.
Keep Yourself Occupied On The Road
We suggest audiobooks or games to pass the hours because theres not much else to do while on the road, especially if you're not driving. Here are our best games…
ALPHABET GAMES. Utilize license plates, bumper stickers or billboards to start from A and finish at Z.
ROAD TRIP BINGO. Make bingo cards with things like seeing a mountain or getting your picture taken in front of weird roadside monuments.
Road Trip Essentials
NOISE-CANCELLING HEADPHONES: These can help you relax, sleep, or have "alone time."
SUNSCREEN: Yes you can get sunburned while driving, so make sure to be proactive.
HEALTHY SNACKS: The road is not famous for healthful meals. Load up on fruits, veggies, nuts, and other foods that will not leave you feeling blah.
HUMOR: Anything could happen on a road trip from inclement weather to seedy motel rooms.
There will be ups and downs depending on how long you are on the road but understand that it is all part of the journey and will make a great story.
