How a Road Trip Can Ease the Winter Blues

Coordinating a winter road trip isn’t impossible as long as you keep your eye on the weather, so take advantage of the next clear, sunny day and go for a ride. Marcus Allard Truck Rental supports your winter fun with our rental vehicles. Rent one out and go for a ride. Here’s how to plan a safe, fun family trip this winter. 

Pick a Destination

Depending on where you live, there are plenty of beautiful regional roads and places to drive through. Pick a scenic route that shows the most beautiful parts of winter: snow-laden fields, icy lakes and downtown areas decorated with lights. Knowing your destination is also important when picking a rental vehicle. For instance, if you’d like to go somewhere in the country, consider renting one of our pickup trucks, as these can get you through any winding paths. 

Passengers Are Good Company

Once you have an idea of where you’re headed, see who’s interested. Whether they are family or friends, consider how many people are joining you so you can arrange the seating. Depending on how many individuals are coming with, you may need to work around for some extra seating. Our passenger vans are perfect for any road trip. Don’t let anyone get trapped in the middle seat: rent one of our passenger vans. If you’d like to be sure that every passenger gets a look at the scenery, this van is perfect for you. They fit between 12 and 16 people, so you can choose the amount of seating that’s appropriate for your group.   

Consider Some fun Games for the Kids

Road trips are a perfect opportunity to put the electronics away for a day. If you’re bringing kids along with you, find ways to keep them engaged. Create fun sightseeing games that they can play along the trip. Locate interesting spots along your route and see if your kids can identify them. There are so many ways, so get creative. 

Getting Away From the Home is Good For the Mind

It’s easy to spend a lot of time at home these days, especially during the winter. Planning an outing, short or long, can lift your mood. Getting away from your familiar scenery can make you feel refreshed. Spend some time away from your work and chores to go on a ride with your loved ones. Now’s the perfect time to indulge a bit and relieve your stress. Looking at the beauty of nature and other scenic spots will take your mind off of anything stressful in your life.
