Does this list include places to visit for good food and drinks?
No, this printable list doesn’t contain restaurants and hot spots for drinks, but I do have another printable that includes that information. It’s great to pair with this printable so that you have a list of different attractions to visit and then a list of great eateries to check out for some of the most amazing food you’ve ever tasted.
How can I keep this printable in good condition while I travel?
If you have a travel binder that you plan on using to keep your itinerary, maps, and other important details stored together, you can punch three holes in the printable and add it to your travel binder for safekeeping. However, if you’re not bringing a travel binder, consider laminating this printable before you head out on your adventure. Adding lamination to it will keep it protected from water, dirt, and more, so you won’t need to worry about it getting ruined while you’re on the road.
If you’re not sure what you’d like to do this summer, but you want to get out and explore with the children, consider taking a road trip to visit as many of the 50 states as possible.

Enjoy visiting lots of new places while checking out different attractions in each of the states using this printable to help guide you to the best spots.
