Spring has finally arrived, which means now is the time to take, or at least start preparing for, a family road trip! There’s a lot to do before you head out on a road trip, no matter how long it may be. Whether it’s your first or five-hundredth getaway, some things just have to be taken care of. Here are some help road trip tips from us here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet. Hit the road and enjoy the wonderful weather.
- Plan Carefully – While it always helps to have a plan before hitting the road, committing solely to that plan could cause problems. A single delay can throw a road trip that’s too tightly knit off schedule. Make a plan prior to leave, but be sure to allow for any delays.
- Come Prepared – It pays to have all of your documents in your car when you take a road trip. Make sure to include your license, registration, and proof of insurance. Having just a few documents can get you out of some tight spots if you get pulled over.
- Clean Up – There’s little doubt your vehicle will be a mess after returning home. While there isn’t much you can do about that, you can minimize the trash, dirt, and grime by cleaning your car inside and out before hitting the road.
Listen To Your Elkhart
With the weather getting warmer and spring slowly approaching, the time is coming to get out and explore your state. So why don’t you hop in the car and check out these awesome Indiana road trips?
Amish Acres in Nappanee, Indiana is a great getaway. If you want to take a time out from your busy life, you can find some solitude here with 80 acres of farms. For extra fun, turn off your technology for the visit and live the Amish way.
Levi Coffin House
If you want to experience a piece of history, this house in Fountain City is perfect. It was part of the Underground Railroad and the original owner, Levi, was called the President of the Underground Railroad. Think about how many lives this house saved.
Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory
Be one with nature at this conservatory in Fort Wayne. There are tons of different gardens with different themes, like the Desert Garden and the Tropical Garden. It smells pretty great, too.
Hall of Heroes Museum
This museum in Elkhart is great for the whole family, especially the kids. It’s the only Super Hero and Comic Book Museum in the world, so it’s a special road trip to take. You’ll find two stories of comic book history here.
