Family Road Trip Tips For an Amazing Colorado Adventure

2019 VW Atlas

Summertime means time for great family bonding during road trips and fun family vacations!  To avoid too many “are we there yet?” questions, it’s important to have a game plan for your trip.  First and foremost, make sure that frequent stops are planned throughout the trip – kids will get restless quickly and will need times to stretch their legs.  Bring a frisbee or a soccer ball when you stop at rest stops.  Back healthy snacks like granola bars and dried fruit, or even pack a cooler that supplies fresh fruit and vegetables to avoid any foods that will make everyone feel sluggish. 

It might be nice to pack tablets or iPads for screen time, but they should be used sparingly so that you can play fun games like license plate bingo or I Spy.  Or, choose movies that everyone will enjoy watching to pass time.  You should also pack some books or coloring books that can be enjoyed and passed around.  Lastly, set a realistic driving time each day that considers how long you feel like you and the family want to be in the car.  If that means only six hours a day, make sure to make the most out of your time driving!
