Road trips are always exciting, but you may get tired very easily as it’s long drive. You must find ways to keep yourself awake, engaged, and focused to keep yourself safe behind the wheel. Entertainment energizes us and increases our driving stamina, making it possible to drive longer and think clearly. Try these tips to drive fun on your next drive.
Get a multifunctional Android radio
What can your factory radio do? Do you still use the standard stereo system? In this time, you are highly advised to install a multifunctional aftermarket touch screen radio for your vehicle. With the big screen head unit, you can have many entertainment ways such as enjoying Bluetooth music, listening to FM/AM radio, watching 1080P videos, browsing the websites, applying Carplay etc.
Enjoy the view along the road
The meaning of road trip is not the destination, it’s the view along the road. When you’re traveling through various regions, you will likely come across a variety of different sights. This is a great opportunity to take in the beauty of the area and see a few unique landmarks. If you have the time, you might even be able to pull over and snap a few pictures.
Old-fashioned car games are still pretty fun
Want to unglue everyone from their devices? There are plenty of classic car games from the days before portable gadgets.
- The license plate game: see how many states you can find.
- Alphabet signs: point out signs and billboards that start with the next letter of the alphabet.
- Scavenger hunt: make a list ahead of time of things to point out or collect during pit stops. Get creative, such as a plastic fork from every gas station, or a list of fast food restaurants you see.
Rest to read a book or blog
For a long road trip drive, remember to take a few good books for the journey. A Kindle is a great travel item to stay busy on a road trip as you can download many books onto one, portable device. Alternatively, Pinterest and Medium are both great apps to find new articles and posts to read across the internet, based on your interests. Finally, nothing beats Reddit or a good Google search for a random topic and see what pops up!
Eat healthy snacks while watch movies
As far as I am concerned, there’s nothing more fun than watching a hilarious movie while eating the favorite snacks. When you stop at a service station try to resist the temptation to get sugary and salty snacks. Buy some fruit or nuts to keep you busy on the long journey.
When boredom sets in a few tasty snacks can be one of the best ways to entertain yourself on a long car ride. Keeping in mind that never watch movies/videos when driving!
Now go ahead, pack those bags, and hit the road. You’re all prepared to have a fun-filled, exciting road trip that won’t be the least bit boring.
