3 Tips For Taking A Spring Break Road Trip

Spring break is the perfect time to take a road trip with your friends or family. However, with so many people hitting the road with the same idea, or just traveling in general, it’s important that you take the time to plan your road trip carefully so that you can have a good time while also staying safe.

To help you with this, here are three tips for taking a spring break road trip. 

Pick The Right Route And Destination

The first thing you need to decide when planning a road trip is where you’re going to go and what route you’ll take to get there. 

According to Patricia Doherty, a contributor to Travel and Leisure, it’s best to plan a spring break road trip that either begins or ends at a place that you’d like to explore with the people you’re road tripping with. In addition to this, you also want to try to plan your actual road trip route so that you’re driving through an area that has things you’d like to see. This could include beautiful scenery that you drive through, interesting places to stop along the way, or activities that you and your friends or family would like to try. 

Be Aware Of Drunk Drivers

Spring break is a time when many people let loose for a week. While this can be something that results in plenty of fun times, it could also be something that could cause dangerous situations.

One of these common yet dangerous situations that could happen during spring break, according to IDriveSafely.com, is drunk driving. If you’ve been drinking, it should go without saying that you never get behind the wheel of a car. But what many people don’t realize is how much time needs to pass before it’s actually safe for you to drive after you’ve been drinking. So before you drive during your spring break road trip, make sure you’ve given yourself enough time to metabolize any drinks you may have had the night before so as to be safe on the road and avoid any potential car accidents.

Pack Smart

Because spring weather can often be unpredictable, regardless of where you’re traveling, it’s wise to check what the weather will be like along your route so you can pack smart.

As a part of this, Emma Sarran Webster, a contributor to Teen Vogue, advises that you also take care when packing your belongings into your car, as items that aren’t strapped down could become projectiles and cause you physical harm if you were to get into a car accident. 

If you’re wanting to take a road trip over spring break, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you plan and prepare for a safe and enjoyable time.
