It is essential to make your trip worthwhile with destination stops, such as the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico or Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

  • Ensure you have enough medication and vitamins for your entire trip. It is also a good idea to pack extra in a separate location, in case some luggage becomes misplaced.
  • Always check the weather the day before your trip and if you are going on vacation for longer than a few days, be sure to pack an array of clothing options.
