7 Tips for the Perfect Summer Road Trip

Planning a road trip this summer? Follow these tips for the perfect summer road trip!

1. Pick a destination

For some, going on a road trip with no plan is the epitome of adventure. For others, there is assurance in knowing where they are headed. Regardless of how you categorize yourself, why not choose a destination you’ve never been to before? Now while it’s not necessarily about the destination, but rather the journey, it’s nice to know that the adventure doesn’t have to end once the engine is turned off.

2. Bring Friends

Pack up the car with friends and your road trip is guaranteed to be a success. Or, at the very least, you’ll be having a ton of fun!

3. Pack an instant camera

Today’s generation constantly desires instant gratification, and in this digital age, it isn’t difficult to achieve that. But why not take it back a decade or two? Buy a disposable camera or use a Polaroid to document all those unforgettable moments.

4. The infinite playlist

Like peanut butter and jelly… Bonnie and Clyde… great music and road trips go hand-in-hand. Load up your playlist with everyone’s favorite songs. Bonus points for those that can be sung at the top of your lungs!

5. Make healthy snacks

Sure, the candy and junk food will keep your energy levels up in the short-run. But for those car journeys lasting longer than half an hour, those snacks just won’t cut it. Plan ahead and stash your cooler with refreshing fruits, crunchy vegetables, and water.

6. Make a difference along the way

Make your road trip experience even more rewarding by interacting with the local community. It can be as simple as shopping at a local farmer’s market or picking up trash. Or at your destination, go the extra mile and volunteer at a local non-profit. The choice is yours!

7. Your adventurous spirit

Half the fun of a road trip is the spontaneous pit stop(s) made along the way. Be adventurous and have fun!

Oh, and of course, you can’t forget the road trip essentials: comfy clothes, hand sanitizer, and your favorite pair of SOLOs!
