Spring Break Road Trip Preparation


With spring right around the corner, it’s time to get ready to hit the road for an adventure. To avoid any mishaps on the road, be sure to have a maintenance check done at a dealer in Atlanta. Brakes, oil and tires should all be part of the service list. And if you’re ready for a new vehicle for the road trip, you’ll find plenty of both new and used cars at an Atlanta dealer like Southtowne.

If you headed for a long road trip with kids, you’ll want to be sure to bring along entertainment. Flash cards, books, travel games, iPods and even a good movie if you’ve got a screen in your care are all great ways to keep the kiddos busy and happy. Stopping at fast-food restaurants can add up quickly and is also unhealthy. Chop up some fresh veggies and fruit and place them in plastic bags for easy snacking. Bring some cold cuts and whole-wheat bread to make your own sandwiches. For hydrating, a few bottles of water will do the job. Use a cooler to store beverages.

To keep the interior of the car clean while on the road, pack a roll of paper towels, a tub of cleaning wipes and some trash bags. For a good old family picnic when you stop to eat, bring along a large beach towel and spread it out where you stop. Other essentials for prepping for a road adventure include bringing a long a first aid kit and road-side emergency kit. With new and used cars, it’s always wise to have a pair of jumper cables. This way you’ll be prepared. When you’re taking a road trip, it’s always important to be prepared for the unexpected.
