With summer officially in full swing, open season on road trips is well underway. As the temperatures rise, vacationers flock to the more temperate climates of the mountains, lakes and beaches across the United States. Whether heading for a dip in the ocean or an alpine getaway in the mountains take the following considerations to ensure a smooth and enjoyable road trip (or two or three) throughout the summer months.

Choosing a Crew

Picking the right travelling partners proves one of the most essential aspects of any road trip. While the wrong companions can ruin a trip or weekend, hemorrhaging valuable vacation time, the right crew can make a road trip the thing of friendship lore and celebration for years to come. Pre trip planning and discussion ensures everyone is on the same page with expenses and the purpose of the trip.

Pre Trip Planning

Are you trying to climb a mountain or savor refreshments in a river all day? Clear trip logistics help avoid any dis harmonizing events during the awesome adventure. Discussing finances and whether it’s a regimented itinerary or relaxed and enjoyable trip can ensure everyone enjoys the summer time excursion.

On the Road

While pre trip planning is the greatest way to ensure a successful road trip, travelling etiquette can maintain the jovial atmosphere of the trip. Periodic stops for food, fuel and activity can break up the monotony of the road and keep all travelers happy. Remember, a road trip is only as awesome as its grumpiest member. Eliminate bummers all together and be prepared for one of the most rewarding summer experiences ever!
