Family road trips are the ultimate way to teach your kids about travel.
They are a chance to create memories to last a lifetime, to explore the historic landmarks of our beautiful country, and for many, the opportunity to experience the freedom of wide open spaces that you can't find anywhere else.
For parents, these on the road adventures might bring back a sense of nostalgia for childhood — everyone camped out in the back seat, snacks in hand and miles of exploration ahead.

While it's true family road trips often get a bad reputation, they don't have to.
Just like any vacation — with or without family — proper preparation is the key to alleviating stressors and repetitive questions that come along with the journey.
Planning games and activities prior to hitting the road are a great way to solve this so you can focus on enjoying quality time together and getting excited for the destination that lies ahead.
