Twizzlers Landmark Summer

Pin It Now!   I don't know about you but my family loves to take road trips, we traveled a ton when I was a kid, long trips, short trips. My favorite trips were always going to Texas to visit family. We would stop many times along the way. Graceland in Tennessee, Kentucky, The French Quarter in Louisiana. Many destinations in Texas as well. The Space Museum, Galveston Gulf. I long to take my kids on a long road trip Out West. The longest we have been in the car is one trip to Texas when Nick was 2 and Alyx was a baby.  The other trips we have taken have been much closer, Indiana, Up North in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois to Chicago. I think Chicago was one of the kids' favorites, we visited Navy Pier, Field Museum to see Sue the Dinosaur, and Shedd Aquarium, which is my favorite. My Ultimate Dream is to get an RV and homeschool across the USA but I think we may need to win the lottery first.
Twizzlers over at  http://www.twizzlers.com/ is running an awesome promotion for the upcoming Summer Vacation Season ....

Twizzlers® Candy, the perfect on-the-go treat, is helping to sweeten family travel this summer with the Twizzlers Landmark Summer™ promotion. The promotion gives consumers the chance to win a trip to a well-known United States destination plus daily, road trip-themed prizes throughout the summer.

According to family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” families are starting to think past the backyard “staycation” and are rediscovering the freedom of the open road. Kaufman shares the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:

■Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers

Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy before snacking on them!

■Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.

■Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.

Where is your family's favorite road trip destination????
