The Ultimate Road Trip Packing & Activity List (Must-Have Essentials!)

There are few things better than the sun on your face, wind in your hair, your favorite song on the radio, and the open road ahead of you. This unique experience is one of the many reasons why road trips are so popular.

Since road trips generally last longer than other methods of transport like flying or taking the train, it is extra important to pack the right things to ensure you are prepared for the lengthy journey.

FUEL

Road trip snacks are often top of mind while planning a trip. There is nothing worse than being on the open road when you’re hungry and there is nothing in sight. Prevent any hunger-induced road rage by having plenty of food on hand. Some of our favorites include: RX Bars, Nude Chocolate, Mamma Chia Granola Clusters, and Primizie Crisps.

DRINKS

Just as you need to keep your stomach full with sustenance on the open road, you also need to stay hydrated! Coconut water is a great option to get electrolytes, or stick to plenty of plain H20. Need something with a bit more kick?  Fill your Ember Travel Mug with your favorite tea or coffee. You can set this smart mug to your preferred drinking temperature, so you can enjoy your hot beverage just the way you like it!

WHAT TO WEAR

During road trips, you don’t just travel through time zones. You will often experience different climates, too. Make sure you wear comfy, breathable clothes that are layered to easily adjust for changes in temperature as you drive from city to city.

STAY CHARGED

Skip the dreaded blinking battery symbol and ensure all your devices are fully charged prior to your trip. Using GPS on your phone can quickly drain the battery, so it’s a good idea to bring a car charging cable or a spare battery pack.  When you use Away luggage you never have to worry about being far from an outlet. Their carry-on suitcase comes with an option to add an ejectable battery pack.

TUNES

Not sure what music to choose? We took the guesswork out for you. Before you hit the road, download our “Caffeine and Cruise Control” Spotify playlist here.  

PODCASTS

Use the extra time to finally get caught up on the latest in news and pop culture with podcasts like “The Skimm”,  “The Future of Everything” and “Armchair Expert”. Or, find the inspiration to start your next project or wellness goal by listening to “How I Built This”, “Hurdle”, “Bulletproof Radio with Dave Asprey” and “The Dave Chang Show”.

 Wherever you go, make sure your expertly packed bag and Ember Travel Mug come with you!
