Keep everyone in the car from boredom with these fun apps to play on the road. Choose classic games like Mad Libs, Road Trip Bingo, and State Plate Bingo for some old school fun.

Use Pinterest for food ideas

Between breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you will get the munchies and are going to want something to nibble on. Hop on over to Pinterest and see what users have pinned on their Road Trip Food list.

Create a Spotify playlist

Music is essential to every car ride. Create your own playlist on Spotify or subscribe to one that has already been created and launch it on your mobile device as soon as you hit the road. One of the playlists we recommend to subscribe to is Classic Road Trip Songs created by Spotify themselves. It includes hits like “All Summer Long,” by Kid Rock, “Route 66” by Chuck Berry, and “Life is a Highway” by Tom Cochrane.
