Road Trip!

It’s time to ditch those typical tourist spots! Get in the know about how to plan your very own amazing vacation- road trip style. Picture this: the open road, wind blowing through your hair, amazing tunes playing and the best part of all… you’re in charge of your destination! 

Obviously the first thing you have to do is pick out your destination. Some important questions you should ask yourself are: what am I hoping to do? How long am I planning to be gone for? And how far do I want to go? All these questions will determine your ultimate destination. Once you’ve figured this part out, it’s smoothing sailing from there!

Map out the route. What’s the point of picking a destination if you don’t know how to get there? Plan your route and stops before you leave. Remember your route is your route. Maybe you want to take the shorter version or maybe you feel like taking the longer scenic route, it’s up to you! P.S there are a TON of apps out there that can help you with route planning. Be sure to download them before you leave! 

Plan, but keep them light. It never fails; no matter how much you plan, something is always bound to come up. Go with the flow — after all you are on vacation! Remember road conditions, weather, and construction can lead you to divert and take an alternate route. Better yet, you never know when you may come across something fun and interesting! Leave room for these types of stops. 

Budget! Yes, driving somewhere can cost you less than flying there. BUT we tend to forget about some important costs. When budgeting, make sure you account for food, hotels and gas! We seem to always get caught up in the more costly costs of fun activities and often forget to save a few extra bucks to feed ourselves. Some of these items you can save on. For example: pack a cooler with some drinks, snacks and sandwiches. This gives you the chance to stop and enjoy an area where you can stretch your legs and keep your belly happy! P.S if going out of the country make sure you have the proper currency on you and/or a visa card. 

Get the whip ready! Before heading out make sure you do some regular maintenance on your car. Get an oil change done, ensure the brakes are working well, good wipers… we can go and on, but we are confident you know what needs to be done! Remember it’s for your safety, your passengers, and fellow drivers of the road. P.S- make sure your spare tire is good to go, just in case! 

Now that you have the tools to get you started on planning an amazing road trip, what are you waiting for? Round up your friends and get going!
