A guide to making the road trip hip (again)
(NC) In today's world of fast travel, the good old-fashioned 'road trip' may seem like a bit of a throwback. This once classic form of vacation travel is now often overlooked for faster options. But you may be surprised by how much fun you'll have if you hit the open road.
Road trip aficionados at Enterprise Rent-A-Car suggest a few easy ways to revitalize your next road trip adventure as follows:
Explore your own backyard: If you want to get away but don't have much time or money, consider a local destination. Tour the sights and sounds in your own backyard and things you may often overlook. This way you can skip town and skip the customs line at the border.
Make landmark stops along the way: Make the vacation about the journey, not the destination. A road trip lets you savour the sights and sounds along your route. Hidden gems also make for perfect photo-ops – an essential for any great getaway.
Take time to make time: Vacations are all about exploring and bonding with your family and friends. Time on the road is the perfect opportunity to reconnect, rejuvenate and revitalize.
Do your prep work: Your car is your command centre, so load it up with the essentials. Pack snacks, sleeping bags and a GPS. This prep work will help you prepare for unexpected hiccups on the road. Don't forget to pack a camera and music playlist. If you're ready to roll but need a reliable car, Enterprise says your trip should start at www.enterpriserentacar.ca.
