There are two types of people on a road trip with kids: 1) those that stop as few times as possible and race to their destination 2) those that stop a lot.

We stop a lot, and make the road trip with kids to the vacation a part of the vacation. I realize this would drive #1 people insane, but hear me out: we may get to the destination later but we have fun along the way.

For example, on our way to Disney, we saw a few billboards for Skipper Fish Camp in Darien, Georgia. Off 1-95 we went and drove through the small town (popular 1,975) to the waterfront restaurant. Kids ran out, counted 5 alligators, and had a great lunch. So fun!

If you’re planning a road trip soon, here are some tips to make it fun:
