On a long road trip, you might find your eyes glazing over at the endless stretch of road ahead of you. It’s enough to keep yourself occupied, let alone make sure your travel companions (including young children) are entertained.
Here are a few low-budget ideas for in-the-car fun, no matter what your age:
Before your trip, make a stop at your local library and load up on some light reading. Don’t overlook magazines and audio books.
Before your trip, download a few podcasts on your cell phone or tablet. There are a variety of podcasts available from National Public Radio or independent producers covering nearly every topic, from humorous to informative. Plug your phone into your car’s sound system and enjoy the ride.
Create some memories.
Bring along a blank scrapbook and tuck in photos, ticket stubs, and funny or interesting observations along the way.
