1. Make random stops, or take alternate routes
Listening to music you enjoy will help the ride be a little less exhausting. Have a mini concert in the car, but don't get too crazy with the dancing. Stay focused on the road.
Stop at the bookstore or the library before a road trip and bring some reading to keep you occupied.
If there is more than one person that can drive, take turns driving. Let the other person take a nap or play on their phone.
If you are a passenger and have a laptop, bring a movie to watch.
6. Local eats
Stop at restaurants that are only in that local area. Try new food!
7. Play road games
- License plate: look for license plates from different states, try to find one from each state!
- Alphabet game: go down the alphabet and find signs that start with each letter in the alphabet.
- Windmill: say windmill every time you spot one. Try to find the most out of everyone else, there aren't too many around anymore!
- I spy: "I spy with my little eye..." and mention the color of what you see. The other people guess what you see
- 20 questions: One person thinks of something (a table, a telescope, shampoo, etc.) and the other person gets to ask 20 yes or no questions to guess what the other person is thinking
