Hit the road this summer with Fodor’s Travel

This post is brought to you in partnership with Penguin Random House.
 

The hubster and I just came back from a road trip up to Central California. We had the best time just being out on the road, but we realized we were missing a few things… and people! See, it was just the Hubster and I, no kids. So now that we’re back, we’re making plans to go back up and bring the kids along with us.

We already found a few spots that we want to go back to, and a few more that we haven’t been to, but are on our must-visit list. Of course, we’re also taking a little more help from the pros out there, like the new guidebook: Fodor’s Travel The Complete Guide to the National Parks of the West. Fodor’s National Parks of the West, on sale May 10, includes completely updated coverage of the best sites, dining, and lodging in and around each park.

For 80 years Fodor’s has been a trusted resource offering expert travel advice and in celebration of the National Park Service Centennial in 2016, their experts unveiled a new suite of online tools and updated guidebooks to help travelers plan an unforgettable family trip to America’s incredible natural wonders.

Fodor’s Travel online tools

Fodor’s Travel offers more than just books though, they have a whole library of tools to help you plan the most road-trip worthy adventures across various states.

3 audiobooks to listen to on the drive: The Fourteenth Goldfish, Escape from Mr Lemoncello’s Library, and Call of the Wild

And while we’re on the road with the family, we’re going to need some travel entertainment. The solution: Listen to an audiobook! With an audiobook, you can completely lose yourself in the journey, enjoying the scenery while listening to a great narrator tell you a story. Ideal listening with kids in the car, audiobooks expand vocabulary, teach pronunciation and improve reading comprehension. In fact, 85% of what we learn, we learn by listening! Whether it’s a charmingly, quirky tale for your middle grader like Jennifer L. Holm’s The Fourteenth Goldfish, a brain-teasing mystery like Chris Grabenstein’s Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, or Jack London’s classic The Call of the Wild read by Emmy Award winner Jeff Daniels, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!
