Just because you have small kids doesn’t mean you can’t hit the open road; with some key tips for a road trip with a toddler in mind, you can have a successful adventure and lifelong memories. When our son was two, we decided to take a road trip from our home in New York to Texas. Our friends and family thought we were nuts for taking such a long trip with such a young child, but we had some tricks up our sleeves, and our trip was a total success. So, pack up the car and get ready to enjoy an adventure with your little ones with these tips for a road trip with a toddler.

1. Pack Snacks

My first of many tips for a road trip with a toddler is to pack snacks, and plenty of them. Kids get hungry fast, and when they are hungry, a meltdown is imminent. When you’re on the road, it can be hard to pull over to grab something to eat, and frankly, you may not be ready for a meal. Not to mention that constant stopping can make your trip even longer. So, pack some easy to eat snacks and have them easily accessible. You – and your little one – will be thankful.
