Summer is here and that means your long-awaited summer vacation is getting close! Are you headed to the beach? Or the mountains? What about the big city? Wherever you’re headed this summer, we want to make sure you’re prepared for your trip with the best travel tips and tricks!

It can be easy to overlook the essentials you’ll need to get to your destination because you’re so excited about all the things you’ll need when you get there. That’s why we’re focusing this week’s blog on some of our favorite packing and travel tips you’ll want to consider for the journey as you prepare for your big summer vacation!

Best Travel Tips to Stay Comfy

Nothing can distract you more while traveling than being uncomfortable. Have you ever been on a plane that had the A/C turned up way too high or not enough? Or what about getting motion sick during a long road trip? To help keep you feelin’ good on your trip, we suggest packing a small blanket, travel pillow, and extra pair of socks. Hand sanitizer, pain medication, and a UV window shade are also a few necessities to have just in case! And lastly, it’s important to have snacks on hand to stay comfortable. Our recipe for Bear Chow is the perfect treat to appease any hangry bears because nobody likes a growling tummy while travelling.

Best Travel Tips to Stay Entertained

The hardest part about going on vacation is getting there. The anticipation of all the excitement that lay ahead will have you stirring in your seat until you arrive. So, don’t forget to bring a few distractions to fend off any boredom. A few things to have with you that will help occupy your mind include: a good book or audiobook, travel games, coloring books & markers, and last but not least, your smartphone and headphones—if you’re road-tripping, just take care not to distract your driver with all the fun you’re having. And remember that a killer playlist can go a long way while traveling!

Best Travel Tips to Stay Sane

You never know what might happen while en route to your destination. What if the airline loses your baggage? Or your car runs out of gas? You want to make sure you’re expecting the unexpected! Whatever mode of transportation you have chosen to take to your destination, don’t forget to pack with you a spare stack of cash, change of clothes, small first aid kid, a water bottle, and most importantly, snacks! Our recipe for Bear Bites Trail Mix is a great on-the-road or in-the-air snack to have on hand for emergencies or for when your stomach starts rumblin’.This trail mix is crafted with our Cinnamon Bear Bites to help make it a great source of carbs, protein, and fat to keep your hunger pangs at bay while traveling.
