Preparing the Family for a Summer Road Trip


A summer road trip can lead to exciting excursions, but it helps to be prepared to handle whatever the road may bring.

At SouthTowne Motors you’ll have access to an impressive inventory of new and quality pre-owned cars. When you buy from us, you’ll know the history of the car so there’s no mystery and no surprises once you’re on the road. Peace of mind is always good, especially as you take off for unknown adventures.

In preparation of your trip, once the car of your dreams is fueled up and ready to go, here are a few suggestions to help prepare the family for their summer adventure.


  • Make a list of necessary items.
  • Bring a first aid kit, flashlights, batteries, blankets and pillows for naps and in case you need to sleep at a rest stop.
  • Pack a cooler with plenty of liquid refreshments.
  • Bring an assortment of snacks, edible fruit and vegetables for munching time.
  • Make frequent pit stops to refresh yourself, stretch muscles and have a little quiet time.

  • Make the trip exciting with frequent stops to take pictures.
