Pick An Awesome Destination/Route
The key part of every great road trip is having a good place to go. You want to think long and hard about where your final destination will be. For me, the best trips are ones that take you somewhere that’s different to what you’re used to. If you spend your life in a city, then a long road trip out to the country is always a good idea. Or, you might want to go to an event, like a music festival, and decide to drive there. This makes for a great road trip idea; everyone will be buzzing. Of course, the roads you drive on will have a huge impact too. Try and choose a route where you get to drive on good roads with lots of scenery. You don’t want to be stuck in traffic the whole way, crawling along at ten mph!

Don’t Drive For More Than 8 Hours In One Day
Although the lure of driving is strong, it’s important that you don’t drive for longer than eight hours in one day. Studies have shown that driving for longer can lead to you becoming tired and drowsy. When this happens, you put the whole highway at risk. Many car accident lawyers claim that driving while tired is a leading cause of motor accidents. It’s not advisable to stay behind the wheel of your car when you’re feeling a little drowsy. You don’t want to ruin your road trip by falling asleep at the wheel. If possible, you could work out a sharing system for driving time while on the road. Perhaps you could drive for a few hours, then swap with one of your passengers. As long as everyone’s insured on the car, it’s a great way to make sure everyone gets enough rest, and you can continue on your trip!

Keep Yourself Entertained
Driving is fun, but only if you have a fun atmosphere in your car! If you’re driving for hours in complete silence, it can become terribly boring. In fact, it can lead to you to get so bored, that you fall asleep at the wheel. I think that all great road trips come with great in-car entertainment. By an aux cord to connect your phone to the stereo and pump out some tunes. Make sure you get a few classic road trip songs in there too. You want to have everyone singing along and making the journey as fun as possible.
All three of these tips will help you have an awesome road trip. It will be fun, safe, and full of entertainment. What I like most about road trips is that once you get to your final destination, you get to enjoy the long journey back home and enjoy it all again!
