As the creators of 130+ cartoon maps in destinations throughout North America, we are (unsurprisingly) big fans of family road trips…and you should be, too!

Yes, without a doubt there will be some calls of “Are We There Yet?” from the little ones in the back, but instead of dreading those complaints, head them off with a little pre-trip prep. Sure it would be easy to turn on an electric game, app or movie, but why not make kids active participants in the journey?

We promise, with this handy guide, it’s just as easy.

Below you’ll find a round-up of our favorite classic car games, geography IQ and map-related activities to keep everyone entertained (and your sanity in tack) as the miles go by. As your kids are looking out the window with purpose and engaging with one another (and not a screen!), they’ll learn that road trips are a meaningful part of any vacation, not just a method of getting from point A to point B.

So what are you waiting for?
