Summer time is just around the corner and the road is ready for your family to conquer! The destination is yours to choose and for your family to explore. With so many landmarks to choose across the country, you can bet that a road trip or two can be fun and affordable. On our family road trips we require 3 very important things: A full tank of gas, music, and snacks. Let Twizzlers Landmark Summer™ inspire your next road trip.
According to family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” families are starting to think past the backyard “staycation” and are rediscovering the freedom of the open road. Kaufman shares the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:
- Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers
Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy before snacking on them!
- Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.
- Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.
I love road trips and ever since I could remember, I’ve always wanted to visit the Washington Memorial in Washington D.C. So many life changing events have brought millions of people there and it would be an honor to stand there and live in each of those moments myself. It would be both educational and historical for my family to make that visit.
What U.S. landmark would you like to take a road trip to and visit this summer?
