Road Trip Somewhere

Created Date: Apr 05,2017

If you’ve ever had the itch to go on a random, spur-of-the-moment road trip, then today might be your lucky day! April 5th is widely acknowledged as National Read a Road Map Day, which is the perfect excuse to hit the road! But before you take-off, here are a few tips to have the most perfect and authentic road trip.


  1. Use a real, paper map. You can use a Sharpie to circle all the places you want to go! This way, it’s a lot easier to keep track of the cities, towns and landmarks you dream of visiting. Don’t forget to cross-out the circles as you travel along!

  2. Make a few playlists. The best road trip needs to have the best music! Burn the playlists you create onto a few discs, and be sure to include some classic jams that everyone is guaranteed to know the words to!

  3. Pack light. If you’re planning on going on a trip that spans over a few days, don’t take your whole house with you! Packing light leaves more room for collecting souvenirs from the places you visit.

  4. Take pictures! Remember your trip for many years to come by putting together a really cool scrapbook of all your adventures. You can even use some of our nifty stickers to spruce it up!

Now that we’ve shared those tips, we wish you safe travels! Where will your imagination take you?
