I just love Summer road trips with the family! After being cooped up all winter long with almost 24 hours of darkness, getting out in the sunshine is just what our family needs and what better way to enjoy the sun, fresh air, and Alaska’s beauty than going on a scenic road trip? My favorite road trip of all time was when my dad and mom took our family and relocated to Alaska from Texas when I was twelve years old. I had never been on such a long journey in my life, but I was able to see so many sights along the way and experience how different parts of the country are unique and the different cultures that shaped each city and state that we drove through. I’d love to go across country again, this time with my husband and children, and see the countryside together!
Summer is just around the corner which means time to round up the kids and head out on a family vacation road trip! Whether going across country to a national park or just taking the kids up to the grandparent’s house, half the fun is getting there. And it doesn’t matter where you’re headed; you’re going to want to be comfortable along the way. With 12v power outlets, JoyBox™ Entertainment system, UConnect® Bluetooth® system, roof rack and more, the Volkswagen Routan provides comfort and fun for the family.
