Road trip essentials

As we all know, summer is quickly approaching and that means road trip season. Road trips can either be very fun or very boring, it all depends on how you prepare for them. This list of tips and tricks will help you have the best summer road trip experiences possible!

  • Wear comfortable clothing – If you plan on napping or just relaxing, you don’t want to be wearing constrictive clothing.
  • Bring a lot of water – In some rural areas, there won’t be any rest stops for hours away so you won’t have many chances to buy a water or fill up your bottle. It’s also important because if you have car trouble while on the highway, you will want to stay hydrated out in the hot summer sun.
  • Stop at rest stops whenever possible – Even if you don’t need to use the restroom or take a quick nap, it’s good to stop and use the restroom or fill up your water bottle because it’s hard to know when the next time you will be able to stop.
  • Bring snacks – It’s always a good idea to have food with you because good restaurants can sometimes be hard to come by.
  • Bring a car charger – Sometimes, when you don’t have cell service, your phone will roam and that will drain the battery so it is a good idea to always have one on hand.
  • Have a positive attitude – Even though it might be hard to think about having to be in a car with your siblings for a long period of time, you should stay positive throughout your trip because your attitude influences the outcome of your overall experience!
