Planning a road trip soon?

I’m so excited for you - I just love a good road trip! In fact, my mom and I just took a day-long road trip to explore a natural cavern in Arkansas’ Ozark National Forest. It was incredible. Road trips are great for making memories and exploring the world around us. That’s why many people moving long-distance plan a road trip while their stuff is moved for them by their moving company. Why not, right? There’s plenty to do and see along the way! Whether you’re moving or you just have a hankering for the open road, be advised that a fun road trip is a well-planned one. Here is some helpful information, tips, and advice on how to plan a road trip. Happy Travels!

Moving and Travel? Sounds good to me!

You may have noticed that I’ve talked about travel quite a bit lately. I totally love my job, and I love writing about moving – but travel is definitely a passion. Mix it with a little summer-time sunshine, and I’ve got to admit… it’s difficult not to talk about it. The good news (for me) is that travel can absolutely go hand-in-hand with moving. If you’re packing up to move across the country this summer, what a great opportunity to visit some amazing places along the way.  

If that’s your plan, getting a good travel guide book is a really good place to start. Think about what you’re interested in doing, seeing and experiencing on your trip and pick up something that fits your interests. Of course, there are a ton of travel books to check out, but I’ve got some favorites.

Do you love the zoo, too?

When I was a kid, I used to love going to the zoo—to the point that I actually tried to talk my parents into moving close by. To this day, I still love going (my husband I just visited the Tulsa Zoo this month!) I have a feeling I’m not alone. If you’re moving this summer and plan to take a road trip along the way, maybe one of these awesome places will be en route to your new destination!

Florida’s Best Beaches

Whether you’re moving to Florida or just visiting, no trip is complete without visiting one of Florida’s many beautiful beaches. But which one should you choose? Take a look at the list below to learn about some of Florida’s best beaches and why you should go!

Clearwater Beach. The name says it all. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, this beach stays at a balmy 73 degrees, with white sand stretching for 2.5 miles. In 2013, Clearwater Beach was named Florida’s Best Beach Town by USA Today readers.
