Road Trip Travel Games | Summer Fun
Summer road trip season is in full swing! According to an Expedia survey, 14% of American travelers were significantly more likely to take a road trip this summer than in summers past because of an improving economy. So even though, according to GasBuddy gas prices now average $3.623/gallon, more families than ever are hitting the road to explore the country.
Forbes Travel editors have created a list of the Top 10 American Road Trips
- Pacific Coast Highway, California
- Going-to-the-Sun Road, Glacier National Park, Montana
- Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia and North Carolina
- Olympic Peninsula, Washington
- Brandywine Valley, Pennsylvania and Delaware
- Cape Cod, Massachusetts
- Columbia River Highway, Oregon
- Red Rock Country, Arizona
- Outer Banks, North Carolina
- Route 66: Chicago to Arizona
Last Fall Matt and I traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway and splurged, staying a night at the Inn on Biltmore Estate. We also spent a wonderful Gets vacation on Cape Cod at Chatham Bars Inn. And our all time favorite road trip is always up the Pacific Coast Highway. We are still hoping to pack the kids in a van later in the summer and hit the road but having done this once or twice before, we are not leaving without a small sack filled with travel games. Not only do the games serve to pass the time, they also keep us talking, communicating. Years later we still laugh at Izzy’s answer to the question “what kind of car would you most like to be in right now?” Her answer – a powder blue Bentley convertible. Not sure we would all fit. One year Robbie surprised us all with a rollicking version of Barry Manilo’s “Copacabana” . And Daniel never failed to win just about every other travel game including Spot It!, Hangman, and Bingo.
Dare to be Great!
