Road trips can be so fun, and such a cool way to travel and see new places. However, it's no secret that being stuck in a crowded car for hours on end can be difficult. With a little planning and smart packing, it's definitely possible to make your road trip more enjoyable. Check out our list below of items you should definitely have with you on a road trip.
A pillow and blanket - For you know, comfort.
Extra phone chargers - Because when you're taking photos, surfing the internet, and streaming music, your phone is definitely going to die quickly.
A book - For when you get tired of looking out the window and at your smartphone screen.
Snacks - This is a given. Try to pack snacks that aren't too messy but provide decent energy. We recommend Wedderspoon Honey On The Go.
Towels - In case something spills in the car, or, you make a spur of the moment stop at a lake.
Bug spray - For any scenic pit stops you might make.
Bandaids - Because you never know!
Sunglasses - To protect your eyes, especially if you are the driver.
Pain killer - Being in the car with lots of people for long periods of time is bound to cause headaches.
Water - Staying hydrated is really important.
Extra clothes - In case you get uncomfortable or too hot/too cold. Make sure you have extra clothes that are easily accessible.
Comfy shoes - For any pit stops, and so you are comfy while sitting in the car.
GPS - This is obvious! You don't want to get lost.
Emergency flares - Just in case of an emergency.
Car paperwork - In case of a pullover, accident, or emergency.
Extra cash - You'll most likely be making many stops along the way and not all places take credit cards.
