Gulf Tide Tips for a Long Road Trip
- Make sure to plan your pit stops ahead of time for your Nashville to Destin journey. The road trip is part of the vacation because you will drive through many exciting places to explore.
- Make sure that every driver is well rested. When you’re driving on the highway, you are going at high speeds without much variation to keep you alert. This makes being sleep-deprived incredibly dangerous on your nearly seven hour Nashville to Destin road trip.
- Bring some entertainment along to keep everyone entertained. This can be audiobooks, music, movies for the passengers, and a list of questions or discussion prompts to get everyone talking and bonding.
