4 Ways To Deal With Memorial Day Traffic

Friday, May 26, 2017

Memorial Day traffic is something that we all have to deal with, and it’s hard not to feel totally helpless when you are sitting on the highway. One of the best ways to beat the Memorial Day heat is with luxury travel and these awesome traffic-busting tips!

LEAVE EARLY

Are you planning on attending a baseball game or other event that thousands of other people will be attending? Leave early if at all possible. If you have the time and money to devote to it, it might be worth traveling down a day early and staying in a hotel the night before your event so that you can enjoy the surrounding city the day of. Always check local travel times and use a traffic app on your phone to see what type of traffic you should be expecting.

MAKE CAR TIME FUN

Memorial Day traffic can be a chore, but if you are traveling as a family, make it into a game! Print off traffic bingo cards and have your children spot license plates from every state in the country. I spy is another fun game to help pass the time in the car. Looking for landmarks helps time to pass more quickly and keeps your kids in a great mood while they’re in the car.

TAKE IT EASY

Beating Memorial Day traffic might mean taking the scenic route—but that’s perfectly fine! Take advantage of scenic routes on the way to your destination and plan at stopping at parks or other nature destinations along the way. The whole family will love enjoying nature on the way to your vacation spot.
