Car Road Trip Games for Holiday Travel

Going on a road trip for your next vacation can be a fun affair if you've got the right frame of mind. After all, happiness comes from enjoying the journey as well as the destination! While being stuck in a vehicle with multiple people for hours on end can seem daunting, finding ways to fill that time with fun games is a great way to pass the time and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime. Stuck on road trip games to play? Fear not - keep reading on for the best road trip games to play with family and friends on your next trip.


ABC Game

The ABC game, also known as 'the alphabet game', is a beloved classic for a reason. It's super simple, fun and guaranteed to get some laughter in an otherwise dull car. The rules are simple. The whole car goes through the letters of the alphabet with each person getting a turn. Person 1 will have letter A, Person 2 will have letter B, Person 3 will have letter C, and so on and so forth. Once the person whose turn it is finds a sign with their letter listed on it, they call it out to the rest of the car. Then it's the next person's turn until you get through the whole alphabet. To add a competitive element, why not include more than just signs and also include license plates or put a timer on to really make things competitive?


I Spy

This is another game that's simple enough for everyone to join in and play along. Each person gets a turn where they say the phrase "I spy with my little eye something BLANK". This takes the form of adjectives like "yellow", "shiny" or "pretty". The rest of the car then tries to figure out what the person was thinking of. It could be the sweater your sister is wearing, or the ring on your friend's finger. The possibilities are endless with this road trip classic!


While it can be tempting to get lost into the world of electronics on road trips, fun games to pass the time are a great way to connect with friends and family and get everyone in a happy mood.
