10 Things to Improve Your Road Trip Experience

  1. Get off the highway and explore the back roads. Take the road less traveled and you’ll see so much more of what the area has to offer.
  2. Keep driving time down to 2-4 hours per day. You’ll pass many interesting places (especially if you follow #1) and you’ll want have enough time to explore without feeling pressured to put the miles in. We can easily turn a 2 hour drive into a 5 hour adventure.
  3. Take the time to get your vehicle organized for your road trip. Determine what fits, have a place for everything and put things back in the same place. This makes packing the car much faster and over time you’ll dial in the perfect “fit” for your vehicle.
  4. Use a snack bag and cooler. Having snacks and drinks when you want them means less stops for food and more stops for adventure.
  5. Good music helps make a road trip great. We use SiriusXM and have a thumb drive with 100s of songs always available.
  6. Make sure your vehicle is sound before your trip. Check tires, get an oil change and get any issues resolved. One thing that ruins a good road trip is a vehicle breakdown.
  7. Use Google Maps to track places you want to visit. Marking places on a map means less time wondering what to do when you get somewhere new.
  8. Embrace technology and mobile apps to help take the pressure off everything that comes with a road trip: route planning, finding places to stay and locating activities, just to name a few.
  9. Don’t break the bank on any one road trip. Saving money leads to more adventures so follow these tips to Save Money While Road Tripping.
  10. Be ready for the unexpected and unwanted. Things will go wrong and learn to roll with it. Take a deep breath, relax, resolve the issue and enjoy the rest of the road trip.
