How can I pass the time on a long car ride?

I'm getting ready to go on a long road trip with my family. They aren’t really big talkers, and I don’t know what to do! How can I help the time pass more easily in a long car ride?

Road trips can be tons of fun, but they do involve a lot of sitting. Luckily, you can use these tips to pass the time on a long road trip:
  • Listen to a podcast or audiobook! This can be a family activity, or you can pop in some headphones.
  • Play a game like contact—where you can engage with your family without needing a topic of conversation.
  • Take a nap. This is an easy way to make the time pass quickly.
  • Watch TV, many streaming services will allow you to download movies or shows onto your phone!
Remember, road trips are only as fun as the people you bring. If your family is a little quiet, then you can try initiation games, conversations, or singalongs! But if you’d rather keep to yourself, any of the above tips can make your drive more bearable.
