What’s your favorite family road trip destination?

What’s your favorite family road trip destination?

We love family vacations!  Who doesn't right? Family vacation time is almost here and Twizzler wants to be part of your vacation this year.

Twizzlers® Candy, the perfect on-the-go treat, is helping to sweeten family travel this summer with the Twizzlers Landmark Summer™ promotion. The promotion gives consumers the chance to win a trip to a well-known United States destination plus daily, road trip-themed prizes throughout the summer.

According to family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” families are starting to think past the backyard “staycation” and are rediscovering the freedom of the open road. Kaufman shares the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:

  • Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers
    Pull ‘n’ Peel
    Candy before snacking on them!
  • Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.
  • Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.
Now that our kids are starting to get older, we are looking forward to planning trips to take them to see some landmarks!  Hubby and I love to travel to the DC area and can not wait to take the kids there, the buildings, the statues, the museums, the zoo!    Since I am a frugal momma, I love that just about all the things to do in DC are free or pretty darn cheap to visit!

I also hope to take the kids to NYC and see  the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Empire State building, etc.  I have not been back to NYC since I was a teen!   Just waiting for my son's legs to grow a little longer, so he doesn't tire out from all the walking and climbing!

A fun treat we always take on road trips is Twizzlers.   A family trip is not complete with out a pack or two for the road!   So what are you waiting for, grab a pack and enjoy your childhood!
