That’s right, the road trip, a true slice of Americana, is an excellent solution to the doldrums of summer — that is if you do it right. The wide-open road represents possibility, freedom, and a chance to create your own destiny. You won’t need a lot of guidance for an awesome road trip, but there are definitely dos and don’ts when it comes to planning a successful road trip, and we're here to help.


Here is a list of things to guarantee a successful road trip this summer:


Road Trip Tip #1:

Make Sure Your Car Can Handle The Trip

Before you even leave home make sure that your vehicle is in good enough shape to take on the road. There is nothing worse than having to cancel all of your plans and spend your vacation money on a new transmission. For short trips, check all of your fluids and make sure your tires are in good shape. For longer trips, i.e. more than a day or two’s drive, take your car to the mechanic and have it inspected.


Road Trip Tip #2:

Bring A Camera

It’s the only way to prove that you actually saw the world’s largest peanut or took a tour of the International Banana Museum. Digital cameras work the best, as you can take as many pictures that you please, but disposable cameras will work well, too.

Road Trip Tip #3:

Snacks, Snacks, and Snacks

There are two possibilities for this tip. The first is to stock up on your favorite snacks and drinks. Bring along a cooler to keep those drinks cold and to prevent any candy from melting. In addition, bring a lot of food that does not need to be refrigerated to maximize cooler space for essential cold items. The second option, and my personal favorite, is to visit different convenience stores and sample regional items. For example, they no longer carry soda in glass bottles where I live, which is, after all, the way nature intended them to be bottled. Whenever I go out on the road, I make a point to find them and drink as many as I can.

Road Trip Tip #4:

Bring A Map and Itinerary

Unless you are feeling extra adventurous, bring along a good road atlas with detailed highway information. Also, give yourself daily goals, as it will help you maintain a sense of progress. That doesn’t mean you have to stick to it, however. Getting lost in some unfamiliar part of the country may be your idea of a great time, just be sure you know how to get back home.


That’s it. Those are your essential needs for a successful road trip. So this summer, make plans to go out and see the world, everything else you can make up along the way.
