How to Turn a Drive Vacation Into an Unforgettable Getaway

Caronavirus may have put a damper on your big vacation plans, but you can still enjoy an amazing family getaway without ever stepping foot on an airplane. When you travel by car, you’re not only at lower risk of being exposed to the virus, but the traveling itself can be a fun part of the trip. But before you pack up the car and get on the road, check out these quick tips for a truly magical drive vacation.

Tips for a Magical Drive Vacation

Take Your Time

One of the best parts about traveling by car is that you can go at your own pace. Instead of rushing from point to point, take some time to enjoy a few stops along the way. From museums and roadside attractions to hiking trails and photo ops, slowing the pace of your trip creates a more relaxing atmosphere while building memories with your travel companions.

Plan Ahead

There is a charm in playing it by ear, but that’s not always the best approach when going on vacation, especially with current health concerns. Make sure you pack plenty of masks, hand sanitizer, medications, first-aid supplies, water, and snacks. It’s also important to map your route, both through GPS and on a paper map in case your electric devices falter. In addition to credit cards and vehicle insurance that you already have, it could be beneficial to carry extra cash and to sign up with a roadside assistance program in case you have any emergencies. Most of all, it’s critical that you know your end destination and that you’ve already booked a place to stay once you get there.

Pick the Right Destination

They say that getting there is half the fun, but that depends on how good of an end destination you choose. To ensure that everyone in your group has an amazing time, you should pick a destination that features a range of fun entertainment options. From the resort water park and golf courses to the convenient location just moments from Disney World and other top Orlando attractions, Spectrum Resort Orlando offers something for everyone, in addition to spacious accommodations.
