Off-campus life in a Flagstaff apartment is grand, but sometimes, you just want to leave the Flagstaff area and hit the road. Unfortunately, for every hour you spend gazing at intriguing attractions during your road trip, you spend another two hours dealing with car-based boredom. Turn your road trip into a true adventure with these fun games:
4 Great Road Trip Games
- Cows on My Side. A road trip classic, this game is best played in rural areas with plenty of cows. The rules are simple: if you see cows on your side of the road, yell, "Cows on my side!" to score a point. If you spot cows on the other side, yell "Cows on your side!" to steal the other person's point.
- The Alphabet Game. Another longtime pleaser, the alphabet game is great for all ages. Beginning with the letter 'A,' try to find all of the letters of the alphabet in order on road signs and billboards. If possible, find all letters without relying on license plates.
- The Story Game. If you're feeling imaginative, select a car driving by and get a good glimpse of its driver and passengers. Use these people to create an intriguing story about where they are going and what they plan to do when they get there. If you're with a group of people, let the passengers in your car take turns coming up with details. This game can also be played when you're alone in the car and bored.
- Vehicle Scavenger Hunt. Assign a certain number of points to different types of vehicles, such as ice cream trucks, limousines or convertibles. Every time you see one of the vehicles on the list, shout it out and claim those points for yourself.
