Living across the country from our families means frequent 20 hour carrides north to Chicago and south to Mexico City. We’ve also taken vacations within the US and abroad that have included driving around for hours and days (even surviving a few without a DVD player:). Without intending to, we’ve become quite the experts in looooong road trips. I’m going to share what’s worked for us: the best strategies, travel games, books, snacks, and activities to keep the kids happy (and therefore, the parents happy) when in the car.
