Spring break is the perfect time to take a road trip with friends and family and have some much-needed fun. No matter where you’re headed on your trip, be sure to keep these travel tips in mind to make the most of your spring break.

Last-Minute Vacation Idea: Beckley, West Virginia

Prepare ahead of time

Before you hit the road, you should make sure you have a well thought out game plan for the week. You should have a general idea of the activities you want to do, sites you want to see, and restaurants you want to check out. If possible, book reservations for these locations as well as your hotel beforehand so you don’t have to worry about spots filling up.

Pack well

It’s a good idea to make a packing list so that you can more easily remember all your necessities. Be sure to bring snacks, chargers, and means of entertainment for the road trip. Plus, fill your suitcase with your clothes, hygiene products, and other important items, while also leaving room for any souvenirs you pick up.

Be flexible

While it’s great to have a detailed itinerary to follow, you should also allow for downtime in your schedule. During free moments, you can relax and take a nap, or you can explore the area. Wandering through a city with no objective in mind can often lead you to find incredible places that you would not have seen otherwise.

Prioritize your safety

Even when on vacation with your loved ones, you still need to be cautious in every situation. You should make sure your money and other valuable items are in a secure location, where strangers cannot see them. It’s also a good idea to carry water no matter where you go and ensure you are staying hydrated.
