What’s your favorite family road trip destination?
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.
Ben and I two years ago, made the long drive from Massachusetts, to Miami Florida, with two kids, and my Sister and her friend.
Of course there were ups and downs (with two small children) but getting to explore all the fun new places, and getting to say "I just drove over 2000 miles" was awesome!!!
We got to see South Of The Border (a very fun little "town," Savannah GA, and even Disney World (lol!!))
We want to do another long drive like that. We are thinking we might try California at some point.
We just have to figure out how to take over a month off from work!!!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.
ENTER DAILY for a chance to win a GPS Unit, a digital camera, National Parks Guidebooks or the Grand Prize a vacation to your favorite American Landmark!
Daily entry runs from 5/15/11 - 9/4/11!
