Road Trip Games and Tips

July 29th, 2011 by

Summer travel season is upon us, and Don Ayres Honda wants to make 2011 your best year yet! Join us each Friday as we provide fun tips for anyone planning to head out on a fabulous summer adventure. We’ll share travel trivia, boredom busters and super songs. (Go ahead … crank up the radio and sing to your heart’s content!) Here’s to a great ride!

Planning a late-summer getaway? It’s a great time to sneak in some last-minute fun in the sun, and you just may be able to take your furry friend along for a great adventure!

First off, we’d like to start with the Honda Element – a one-of-a-kind vehicle designed with Fido in mind. (Seat covers, floor mats and a built-in doggy bed make this a comfy ride for your furry friend.) If you’re not fortunate enough to have an Element (yet!), you can certainly make your pup comfortable in just about any vehicle. Place a beach towel over the seat to protect your car’s upholstery and add a pillow or pet bed to make things extra cozy.

Traveling with pets is easier than ever, thanks to a growing list of hotels and motels that welcome four-legged friends. Visit RoadTrip America for a great article on choosing pet-friendly accommodations.

Finally, pack smart! Take plenty of food and water. You’ll need a water bowl that you can fill at rest stops, as well as a gallon or two of tap water … just in case you end up in a place where tap water isn’t easily accessible. Also, be sure to have at least two leashes and plenty of plastic grocery bags for cleaning up after bathroom breaks.
