Thinking about taking a road trip? We’ve got the family road trip 101!
The summer months are the perfect time to plan get-togethers with family and friends. With the warm weather and beautiful sunshine, come opportunities to get together and spend as a family whether it be a picnic, pool party or big reunion. The beautiful weather helps with the traveling aspects of things as well. There is nothing worse than driving in slushy, cold weather–especially when you have your children on board. There’s a good reason, summer is the peak time for family road trips!
Whether your trips are short or long, you’ll be sure to hear, “Mom! Are we there yet?” at least half a dozen times during your journey. It’s the mantra of family road trips and if you don’t hear it chances are your child is either asleep or preoccupied with something really cool. After hours upon hours in the car things can get a little nutty, or not depending on how prepared you are. Some kids love the car and others not so much.
With over 7 road trips under our belt already this season, I thought I would share 10 of our favorite tips and ideas for a successful and stress-less family road trip. What are your favorite tips?
