Things to do on a Long Car Ride.

Have you ever been bored when going on vacation? Sometimes you don’t get the luxury of getting on a four hour or less flight. Long car rides can also be worse if you are crammed in the back with siblings.

  1. Bring a pillow, neck rest, or blanket for the trip

2.Request to stop and stretch if you need to

3. Make sure your electronics are charged or get a portable charger

It’s better to play games instead. Can’t think of any games? With the help of Google, you can find a game that everyone will enjoy.

6. Bring food or buy food at gas stations
