There are few things that can be as adventurous and exhilarating as a long cross-country road trip. Whether you’re going with friends and family or driving alone, it is a great opportunity to see all of the beautiful landscape and contrasts that this world has to offer.

Whether you’re travelling in the United States or abroad, here are some basic tips from an experienced road-tripper on how to make your experience both safe and satisfying.

Road Trip Tips

  1. Make frequent brief stops along the drive. If you’re driving for more than 3 hours, make sure you stop for at least 10 minutes every 1-2 hours of driving to relax and get some rest. This will not only help to rejuvenate you, but will also help you to look around and appreciate the scenery that surrounds you.
  2. Stay well-fed and watered. Like any endeavor that requires consistent focus, you’ll be happier if you have munchies and drinks always at your disposal (but watch how much you eat!).
  3. Have a good driving partner or some music on hand. With nothing to distract you from the open road, long drives can be rather arduous. Bring a good friend who can split the driving and provide fun conversation, or at least make sure you’ve got some tunes you enjoy.
  4. Enjoy the ride! Road trips are meant to be an adventure, so appreciate the places you’re driving through, meet people at the places you stop, and have a great time!
