One of the things I see often from people on social media is how to travel with kids and making road trips comfortable and occupied in the car. We’ve created a list of best road trip essentials to not only make your travels easier, but also more fun.

Road trip essentials of course include items for safety. Some ideas to have in your car include foam tire filler, emergency roadside kit, and car fire extinguisher.
