Don’t make the rookie mistake of eating every meal to-go from a fast food chain. You have to make sure that one of your meals, preferably breakfast or dinner, is at some honest-to-god sit-down restaurant along the way.
This gives you all a time to rewind, relax, and fuel up before going on your way. You might think it’d be better to get to the hotel quicker and snarf all your meals in the car from a drive-thru, but after two days your family is going to hate that routine. You’re allowed to relax, even on a road trip, so set aside the time to eat a meal right. Trust us on this.
