Fun in the Sun


School is almost out and the time for planning fun summer vacations is here! Summertime is the perfect time to hit the road and explore this great country. Whether you have a destination in mind, are visiting different Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores along the way for the perfect road trip pit stop, or taking the road less traveled, road trips provide memories that will last a lifetime.


The secret to the perfect road trip is to have the right snacks, music and activities before you hit the road, which can all be found online at (we just couldn’t help ourselves). You can’t go wrong with packing a versatile tote filled with trip essentials that can also be used for whatever adventures arise along the way!


Sure, most people have GPS in their cars and on their phones, but one of the best ways to truly experience a great road trip is to navigate your way by using an atlas. You’ll be saying, “Atlas, I know where we’re going!”


If you enjoy the great outdoors, or are looking for a fun getaway, a wonderful way to create memories and see some incredible sights on your trip is by camping and hiking. Right now is the right time to enjoy some fresh air, work off that hash brown casserole (so worth it) and explore nature!

For those who consider sitting on a porch or patio to be “outdoorsy”, we have the perfect camping alternative for you! All you need is a little creativity and you can create your own campsite at home. Melt some marshmallows to go with the chocolate and graham crackers, turn the lights off, tell some ghost stories and it will feel like you’re camping underneath the stars. Well, almost.
