Make the best out of your road trip

According to the dictionary a road trip is (1) a trip taken by sports team to play one or more away games and (2) an extended trip in a motor vehicle. At Wacky Wheels we believe this description is too simplified and there is waaay more to it.


So what does make a trip on the road an actual road trip??

We’ve come up with a list of things we think are crucial to make an awesome ride. Our 8 tips for the perfect road trip are:

  1. Travel mate(s)
  2. Noting makes a trip more enjoyable than good company! As much as we also encourage solo road trips, hitting the road with travel mates can make it better! Make sure to make a good partner pick.

  3. Music
  4. Open road and music are a perfect match! Make sure to download some cool playlists before you hit the road. Check out the radio stations too, maybe you’ll get to hear something new and local. For more good vibes on the road you can also use the Spotify playlists of Wacky Wheels.

  5. Car games
  6. Perfect to pass the time and entertain all the travellers! Play for points if you want to make it more competitive. For game inspiration check out our blog post about the road trip games.

  7. Road maps
  8. Always useful when exploring an unknown place. You can easily find out where you are or where you need to go. Get the nostalgic feeling while holding a the map in your hands. Don’t be afraid to mark places or even write your notes on it! Afterwards the map can serve as a reminder of the places you’ve visited.

  9. Cooler bag
  10. You never know when you’ll be able to have the next bite. Bringing a cooler bag with snacks and drinks will ensure you’re covered in case you get hungry or thirsty.

  11. Sunglasses & swimming suit/shorts
  12. You definitely do not want to get blinded by the sun, so sunglasses are a must! As for the swimming suit or shorts: you never know when there will be a chance to use it! And trust me, you wouldn’t want to miss out if there is one!

  13. Go off track
  14. Don’t follow the path everyone takes and avoid the highways. It’s worth driving on the smaller, curvy scenic roads. Enjoy the view and ride on!

  15. Get lost
  16. Ditch the maps from time to time and choose randomly where to go next. You never know where the road will take you! Embrace the unknown and get ready for a new adventure.

And remember to always enjoy the ride, as it’s the journey, not the destination, that counts!
