Planning a family road trip is never easy. But a new website- www.getroadready.com– can help you plan your trip and maybe even save money on your gas.
The site, which sponsored by Prestone, offers travel tips (driving directions, points of interest, advice from momblogger Brandy Schaffels) as well as car maintenance checklists.
GetRoadReadyalso provides free access to Rand McNally’s TripMaker Planning Tool– which helps you plot out your entire car trip from start to finish and even provides you with point of interest recommendations along your route. Or if rising gas prices have you reconsidering your vacation plans, take a look at the “Best of the Road” regional road trip feature to see if you can find a vacation destination closer to home.
To keep kids busy,and to help you keep your sanity, there are even a bunch of old fashioned printable car games like Hangman, Tic Tac Toe, State Capital Games, License Plate Games and more. Sure…you could just pop in a DVD, but these nostalgic games will make the road trip more memorable for your kids and might even provoke some interesting conversations.
