We have road-tripped over 40,000 miles, through the past 7 years with our kids. As a matter of fact, the very first road trip we did with a baby was when our daughter was only 7 weeks old. We drove the 15 hours from Virginia to Florida. After we welcomed our second child, we hit the road even quicker and took a 15-hour road trip when he was only 4 weeks old. Since then, we have crisscrossed the United States several times with our kids and learned many lessons along the way.
Throughout these road trips, we have figured out what works best when on a road trip with kids and what does not. This guide will walk you through 10 avoidable mistakes when road tripping with kids and hopefully help you avoid them!
