Plan Your Route – While it is a good idea to leave some of your time unplanned for stops along the way to destinations you may not have known about, a great way to maximize your experience is to spend some time finding destinations and attractions along the way that you would like to see and make them part of your journey. From state and national parks to historic sites, theme parks and historic sites, this will help you plan the perfect trip no matter where you are going.
Get Out The Map – After you have chosen destinations you would like to see along the way, start mapping your route. Use maps online or map books and plan your stops along the way. Choose how far you will travel during a day and plan your stops accordingly. Be careful planning to much during this phase as you do not want to leave yourself disappointed if you are delayed or detoured along the way.
Know Road Conditions – Many gps units will help you avoid construction or delays along the way however, if you do not have a gps unit with this feature, check with road authorities near certain areas along the way to ensure you do not find yourself having to backtrack or skip destinations due to construction or closures.
After the planning, it is imperative that you get your vehicle ready for the journey. Pack emergency kits, get a tune up and an oil change, be sure tires are properly inflated and make sure you and your vehicle are ready for the trip.
You can have the vacation of a lifetime no matter where you go with a little bit of planning, stop leaving your vacation up to chance.
