Going somewhere? Check out these spring break road trip tips before going on your big vacation!

Match your clothes

It’s easier to cut down on clothes when all your apparel matches. If your family’s shirts, dresses, bottoms, and shoes can be mixed and matched into different outfits, you can reduce the space needed in your luggage for clothes.

Remember beach necessities

Going to the coast? Pack multiple bathing suits (because no one likes putting a damp suit back on), beachside snacks, water bottles, pool toys, and — most importantly — sunscreen. Not going to the beach? Bring sunscreen anyway.

Bring chargers

These days, phones do all the legwork on long car rides. It’s where you keep your GPS, your road trip playlist, mobile games, photos, and apps that show you nearby gas and hotel prices. Make sure your phone is charged so you don’t lose access. Your passengers might also have things like an eReader, tablet, or portable gaming devices, so gather all of them up, make sure they’re charged, and bring chargers.

Travel comfortable and take breaks

This isn’t so much a packing tip as a travel tip. You might be tempted to wear jeans in the car, but you’d be better off wearing a comfortable t-shirt and pajama pants. Additionally, it’s important to take breaks every one or two hours to stretch your legs.

Remember, your road trip can also be twice as enjoyable in the right vehicle. Visit Robbins Toyota to take a look at some of Toyota’s most family-friendly and road-trip-friendly SUVs, crossovers and minivans!

Toyota Is Creating a Prototype City of the Future

Toyota is constantly at the forefront of introducing new technologies to the automotive world. However, Toyota is also introducing innovative new ideas outside this realm as well.

One such idea is a new prototype city of the future that Toyota is working to create at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan.

While a fully functioning city in its own right, this prototype city, dubbed Woven City, will be much smaller than most modern metropolises, measuring 175 acres in total. Still, it will have all the amenities of a modern city, plus some advanced new innovations that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.

Its citizenship will also be comprised of a much different demographic than most cities. After all, it will be almost entirely populated by researchers and scientists in the process of creating new technologies. These scientists will not only be from Toyota, but outside commercial partners and organizations as well.

 “We welcome all those inspired to improve the way we live in the future, to take advantage of this unique research ecosystem and join us in our quest to create an ever-better way of life and mobility for all,” explains Akio Toyoda, president of the Toyota Motor Corporation.
