Benefits of Family Road Trips

If you ask parents, especially of young children, traveling is likely among their biggest stressors. Changing routines, packing all the things, preparing for the worst but hoping for the best-traveling can certainly pose a few difficulties for families! At the same time, though, there is something positive and alluring about driving cross country with a full back seat. 

Aside from the roadblocks to traveling with your brood-no pun intended!-there are beautiful benefits of that time spent together. Namely, you can use that time to talk and re-connect. In a world full of distractions and fast-paced days, it's nice to relax and just be together. Road-tripping offers leisure together time at its best.

Another benefit is actually one of the perceived stresses: the age-old "are we there yet?" can teach kids patience, something they may not have much practice with outside of traveling. Just as we can't rush a good meal, there's no fast-forwarding a drive through the plains or along the ocean. And who would want to?! Don't ask a toddler…

Educational benefits abound when you take the time to learn about the different cities and states, agriculture and foods, and even architecture of a new place. Follow the journey on a map instead of an app and learn about direction, altitude, alternate routes, and don't forget to look out the window to enjoy nature's artistry!

As cliché as it sounds, road trips are truly memory makers. When your kids are grown and everyone lives under a different roof, you'll all fondly remember the days in the family car, and hopefully it'll keep the traveling tradition alive for generations to come.
