Summer Road Trip Survival Tips with Kids

Staying Sane & Having Fun with Kids in the Car

Summer vacations often include a family road-trip. There are countless destinations to explore from the kid’s favorites, exciting amusement park resorts and entertaining roadside attractions to the adult favorites, historic destinations, and educational journeys. But, as many of us know, the quality time we spend with our kids won’t be all about the sunshine. Often, the majority of time will be spent in the car. When the kids are getting antsy and traffic is at a standstill, what you need is a summer road trip survival guide!

While planning a road trip during the summer months, there is more to plan for than having fun in the sun. A lack of mental stimulation and ensuing boredom during the trip is something the modern parent often forgets due to all of the available technology. A good schedule and plan plus some quite-time games for your travels can help keep the children happy, quiet, and still having fun (and hopefully keep you sane in the process)!
