Traveling is going back to the basics with classic roadside adventures.
Whether you’re traveling for a weekend getaway across state lines or are trekking across the country, road trips are an American staple and so are savvy co-pilots.
Top 5 Co-pilot Essentials
Co-pilots are more than just a person along for the ride-- they’re your driving companion that engages in fun conversation, games, directions etc. The following are the 5 essentials that every driver needs from their co-pilot.
#1 Music Playlist
As the co-pilot, you should have music playlists ready to roll. If you didn't have time to Shazam and download some top tunes to create a playlist that you and the driver enjoy, no problem.
Below are some apps that you can download on your phone and play along the way.
Directions are a hot commodity when traveling. Paper maps are dated and don't adjust to the travel time, update you on traffic alerts or even notify you if cop's radar is down the road. The following are a few free GPS apps you can download to your phone for a stress free ride, including:
- Google Maps
#3 Beverages & Tasty Treats
What would a road trip be without some tasty snacks and hydration; the following are our must-have healthy road side snack packs .
- Drip Drop (Hydration powders)
- Justin's (Chocolates, nut butters and pretzels)
- Graze (Personalized Grazing variety)
- Unreal (candies)
- Dang (coconut chips)
- Teas'Tea (tea)
#4 Car Games
Before there were smart phones, classic road trip games included I-Spy or the Alphabet game where you had to find signs along the road starting with A and finishing at Z. Now, there are smart phones with road trip apps, such as:
- This or That
- Heads Up
- What If..?
Whether you're traveling across town or across country, you want to have someone you can talk to along for the ride. If you want an even deeper conversation you can change the tune of your stereo, or phone, to some entertaining talk radio, such as:
- Sirius XM channel 95 COMEDY CENTRAL RADIO
- National Public Radio (NPR)
- TED Talks
