Tips for packing, saving and planning
Right now, LiveLifeLocal is highlighting tips to help take the stress out of trip planning this travel season. For example:
Plan ahead. An unplanned adventure can bring a sense of excitement to summer travel plans. But, when heading on vacation with a family or a large group, spontaneity isn’t always an option. Online resources, like LiveLifeLocal.com, can make it easy to plan a full itinerary for your trip – whether it’s a road trip across country or a day trip to a local town.
Pack smart. Packing for an extended trip can quickly take the joy out of traveling. Avoid this stress by packing compact. Other packing tips like using vacuum bags to conserve space or packing multipurpose items that can pull double-duty, such as a sleeping bag that works as a picnic blanket, will help eliminate clutter.
Save money. The drive can be just as fun as the destination itself when it comes to summer road trips. Simple tips for how to save at the pump, like fueling up in larger cities and leveraging the cruise control, can help limit gas expenses and enable travelers to take advantage of the open road.
