Recently I took a road trip to Las Vegas, Nevada and wanted to share with all you adventurers some road trip planning essentials and my favorite ways to make long drives fun! The first and most important thing is to grab your girlfriends and a map and choose your destination! Whether there is somewhere you have been longing to go or you’re just up for a spontaneous adventure, grab your map and car and create your route 🙂
The number one essential for me to have for any road trip is a mount for my phone. This way I can easily see my GPS and navigate to my destination. What’s nice about this one is that it easily fits in the air vent and it can be found at Target! It’s also in the ideal location to DJ your favorite songs, so make sure you have a poppin’ playlist you can jam out to! I think my favorite part about road tripping is singing at the top of my lungs and dancing 😉
Another road trip essential for me are sunglasses. I absolutely have to have sunglasses handy when I drive anywhere, especially those longer distances! I am obsessed with these sunglasses from Urban Outfitters, they are my go to.
My most important tip for road trips is to schedule in plenty of stops. Especially if you are traveling with friends! Pull off for pretty viewpoints or spontaneous photo shoots. Even a dirt road with a green like this one can create awesome photos. This is also an excellent time to stretch your legs, eat a snack, or get some energy out. Make sure to capture memories not only once you arrive to your destination but to and from as well! Now grab your friends and let’s go!
