For many, the end of the school year means packing the kids up and heading cross country to spend some quality family time away from it all.

I personally love road trips. To me, road trips are super fun and exciting, especially with kids. I enjoy everything about packing my boys in the car and exploring the world with them and seeing their faces when they see something different from the skyscrapers and subway stations of their beloved New York City.

So what is the best way to prepare for these adventures? By using tech, of course. From using Wunderlist or Evernote for your packing and snack lists, there are plenty of apps that allow any road tripping family to find ways to save money, go off the beaten path locations, and find good eats no matter where your travels may take you.
