5 Tips for a Fun, Safe Road Trip [UPDATED]


As the holidays approach, there’s a good chance you’ll be hitting the road for some good, old-fashioned family time.

A mishap on the road can put a damper on your fun, so make your travels are fun and safe for everyone.

Here’s what you can do:

1. Go off-road

Instead of stopping for the standard fast-food fare, try something different.

Give everyone on the trip a chance to choose a new restaurant and be brave enough to try something outside of the box.

2. Take a few pit stops

A fun road trip doesn’t have to be all about the destination. Take some time to stop and smell the roses along the way.

Get out of the car for a little bit and see some of the local sights.

3. Always be safe.

While it’s tempting to want to get to your destination as fast as possible, avoid speeding.

It puts everyone in the car in jeopardy and if you’re caught speeding, you’ll pay a hefty fine.

Instead of pressing toward the finish line, savor the trip with your loved ones.

4. Try an alternative route.

Sure, interstates will get you there quickly, but you’ll miss all kinds of local treats.

Opt for the scenic route for part of your trip to catch better geography (Weather permitting, of course!), historical stops or local eateries.

You’ll make great memories that you’ll never forget!

5. Do due diligence.

Some of the best road trips are pre-planned, so take the time to investigate your options.

Instead of leaving it all to spontaneity, give some thought to recreation that will please the majority of the group and take advantage of activities that are close to each other.

You’ll save on time and squeeze more fun into the trip.
