Planning a road trip can be overwhelming, especially in a vast country like the USA. There are a few things you can do, however, that’ll ensure you have a memorable and safe journey

Read on for five ways to start planning the ultimate USA road trip.

Travel in style and comfort

Wear clothes that are comfortable and stylish so you’re always ready for a photo opportunity. This could be a favorite floral dress for girls and a button-down shirt for guys. You don’t need to break out the high heels, there are many comfy flat shoes that aren’t slippers.

While it’s tempting to drive in pajamas, you never know where you’ll end up, so always bring along some fancier options.

Find a place to stay

While you may choose to leave a lot unplanned, it can be comforting to have a nice hotel stay to look forward to. Booking a place even a few days in advance can alleviate stress and worries about whether or not you’ll have a decent place to sleep.

IHG delivers true hospitality for everyone and can help you find the perfect place accommodation. If you want to stay somewhere special, consider this downtown Nashville hotel located in the historic Printer’s Alley.

Stay connected with a portable wifi

Free wifi can be hard to come by in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, it’s easy to buy or even rent a portable wifi hotspot at a reasonable price.

Of course, you don’t want to spend the entire trip browsing social media, but staying connected means you can update loved ones and have peace of mind in case of emergencies.

Choose a road trip buddy

Finding the perfect person to travel with is key to having a great time. You’ll need someone reliable with similar interests and intentions for the trip. Also, you someone you won’t bicker with too much while stuck in the car for hours on end! If you want to get up and going early in the morning, a night owl may be difficult to travel with.

Try and pick a buddy who wants to get adventurous with you and you live in the present moment.

Stop at quirky roadside attractions

Do some research beforehand about interesting attractions along the way. You don’t have to create an itinerary, of course, but knowing some of the quirky and fun things out there will get you motivated and give you an idea of which routes to take. A quick Google search can tell you where to find some of these wacky places.

However, don’t be afraid to stop spontaneously if you see something intriguing. If you’re at a diner or gas station, you can ask a local what weird things are around to check out.
