Piling into a stuffed car full of people and belongings and heading across miles of pavement might not be everyone’s idea of family fun, but it is for me. I grew up taking family road trips with my grandparents and loved spending the time with them and exploring our country’s history and landmarks. With the kids getting bigger, I couldn’t wait to begin our family’s road trip adventures. Although we’ve started small, we’ve taken a few trips around the state and they weren’t quite how I envisioned. Technology and gadgets have changed the road trip. Instead of playing family games out the windows or coming up with silly stories, everyone was plugged-in to their own thing. In an effort to embrace the change, but still enjoy the aspects I loved as a kid, we found our 5 top road trip game apps. These apps bring technology and family together and are a great way to pass the time in the car.
