The great thing about road trips is that there is no need to book flights in advance. There are no worries about layovers, time constraints or checking luggage. Road trips are a laid-back form of traveling that minimize the unwanted stresses vacations often cause. The only pre-planning necessary is booking hotels, and even this can be bypassed if you’re unsure of where you’ll be each evening. This past March I took a road trip to Daytona Beach, Florida, for spring break with some of my friends. It was inexpensive, relaxing and a great time.
Having never been on such a long car ride, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The drive down was very long, but a lot more fun than I expected a 20-hour car ride to be. We brought snacks with us, minimizing the need to stop for food on the road. Because there were about 12 of us traveling, we booked our hotel a couple of months in advance. It ended up costing only $13 per person, per night! The hotel was right on the beach, and we spent a lot of time hanging out on the sand and swimming in the surprisingly warm ocean. The nightlife in Daytona was great as well; there was a place to go every evening! The road trip was an unforgettable experience, and one we all still talk about today.
