Ten Road Trip Activities For a Fantastic Adventure
Before you go on your next road trip, you may want to look at the following activity ideas and road trip games to add a bit of variety and entertainment as you roll along on the road:
Eat at a Local Spot
Getting a meal at a local restaurant is a great way to connect with other people on your road trip, and you may even pinch some helpful information from the locals.
Watch the Sunrise/Sunset
You can sit in your car with the doors open in a field beside the road and watch the horizon as the sun rises or sets. You may want to capture the beauty before the moment passes.
Instead of stopping at hotels or inns for the night, you and your family could make your road trip stops at campsites. You will enjoy the feel of the outdoors, stretch your legs after hours in the car, and maybe eat some hot food.
Car-Singing Contest/Sing Karaoke Songs
On the road, car-singing contests or car karaoke are fun ways to get everyone in the group relaxed and happy.
Enjoy a Movie With a Portable Projector
You can enjoy your favorite movies away from home with portable projectors that can deliver a cinematic setting outdoors when camping with the whole family. (be ready for a good laugh).
Share Life Stories
Everyone in the group takes turns to share authentic and personal stories, probably about high school dates or weird experiences, or share memories from previous road trips, adding more hilarity and nostalgia to the trip.
Create Fun/Memorable Travel Videos
One way to document an adventure is to make a mini-movie. You can create a mini-documentary, capturing every high point on the road trip, talk to and record people you meet, and make beautiful videos you can look back on with a smile.
Visit a Landmark
Whether it's a Giant Gumboot in Taihape, New Zealand, or the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, landmarks are the perfect side attraction for your road trip. Take detours to historic spots along your route, and don't forget to take pictures!
Listen to an Audiobook or Podcast Series
You can pass the time on your road trip by listening to an audiobook version of your favorite books or episodes of your favorite podcast series. Keep your mind alert and learn new things as you journey.
Have a Picnic
Food can warm the heart, and roadside picnics during road trips can be fun with the whole family. Picnics are great for bonding, with plenty of laughs to go around, and plenty of food, too.
The Features You Need When Buying an Outdoor Projector
If you need a portable projector before you go on your next road trip, here are a few features you must look out for when buying an outdoor projector:
For outdoor projector use with unavailable power, you need a portable projector with a reliable built-in battery. An outdoor projector that can provide about two hours of power (the average for a single movie) on a single charge.
Resolution & Brightness
With 1080p/4K resolution and 300+ ANSI lumens brightness, you can enjoy your favorite movies on road trips in bright and crystal-clear images, especially at night with little lighting.
With a screen size of 60-200”, you can enjoy an enormous and theater-like display wherever you are. You would need a projector screen for outdoor viewing. If there are no projector screens, the side of your truck, a wall, or thick white sheets can serve as alternatives.
Built-in Entertainment/Storage Space
Some smart outdoor projectors run on operating systems like Android TV, which provides access to thousands of apps. However, with WiFi unavailable on road trips, look for portable projectors with multiple ports and decent storage space so you can play pre-downloaded content saved on the projector or watch movies stored on your flash drives, hard drives, etc.
