Your journey is more pleasant when you consider it an adventure rather than a tiring trek. Here are our tried-and-true adventuring tips:

“We saw many exhausted children arriving at the park. My husband said, ‘Don’t they know it’s best to travel at night when the kids are sleeping?’ I know it is tougher for mom and dad, but try taking turns napping the day you leave, then take turns driving at night ... safely, of course! The kids arrive fresh and not out of sorts. And, in the end, everyone is much happier.”

“Our family enjoys playing the ‘License Plate’ game when we are driving. For a new twist, we search for specialty plates. A search on the Internet will usually provide a page to print out, with the various designs available in each state. Our children cross them out as they spot them on the way. Winner picks the lunch spot. Sometimes we play individually and sometimes as a group. When we play as a group, someone is usually ready for a lunch stop and the rest of our vehicle isn’t. ‘When we spot 10 different plates, we will stop.’ It usually buys the driver a few more miles and we never know what restaurants that rest stop will offer. It also prevents disagreements over where to stop and we enjoy the element of surprise.”

“Take a hanging shoe rack (door hanger) to keep your hotel room organized. We hang ours on the back of the bathroom door and it allows us to keep the sink area clear for those getting ready. It also helps keep the medications we need to bring up out of the reach of our two-year-old. Overall it helps in many ways!”

“When my family went to Disneyland, we spent about a month trying to decide what to bring in the park during the day. But we were so excited to get to the park when we first arrived that we took nothing but our wallets and tickets to the park! Since we were a single-parent family traveling with two teenagers, we didn’t really need much. I can tell you that it’s so much better not to have to carry a backpack or bag around all day.”

Magical Memory

“I packed my child a bag that he could not open until the plane was in the air. The bag had little toys, crayons, and a coloring book, plus snacks that he could have on the plane (check with the airlines you are traveling with) as well as a stuffed animal to snuggle up with for a nap on the plane. He loved it and was content the whole way. I also had one for the return trip with things I bought from where we had stayed. He loved it as well and we had peace!”

...as told by vacationer Brenda Vallen
