As we start to think summer, what are your plans?
Personally, we are planning a few day trips / long weekends. One day trip in the works is to a concert that’s about 2 hour drive each way. This takes some planning – checking out the route and plans for the concert – tickets, parking, the location, etc. Our weekend away is for later in the summer, this involves more planning as it’s out of state to an event. Nver the less, planning comes into play here as well.
With all our plans (and whatever you are planning) for this summer, here are some tips for that road trip from The Hartford for everything from a day trip to driving in a foreign county to prepare yourself and your car to be able to plan ahead.
You need to consider – route maps, lodging, gas, lodging, admission fees, parking and more to work with your budget. Options is what it’s about. For example, route maps have come a long way from the paper maps to GPS to phone navigation apps – all are good choices, but require planning. What’s your preference? Doing your research ahead of time, helps you plan your finances and helps you to stay within your budget.
I’ll keep you posted on our summer adventures. So what’s on your bucket list for this summer (and beyond)?
