This can range from couple's trivia to a random quiz that you think you or your partner will enjoy. It speeds up the time and makes you think. Couple's quizzes are a great way to get to know each other better or test how much you know each other already. You might find out something you didn’t know before. Trivia is one of the most fun things to do on a road trip with your partner.
2 Listening to Music
The passenger is almost always in charge of the music during a road trip. There is no road trip without a good playlist or radio to pump up the drive. If you’re feeling crafty, make a mixtape for the trip or burn a CD. It’s important to keep the driver awake, especially if you’re traveling for a couple of hours.
3 21 Questions
It’s just you and him in the car for hours. It’s the best time to ask him something you’ve always been afraid to or that he has possibly dodged. There’s nowhere to hide and it’s good to make conversation. Sometimes just asking questions can spark up convos or even help think of ideas on planning another trip together.
If you’re alternating when diving then this is the perfect idea for you both. When there’s nothing much to do, arts and crafts are fun and more unique when it’s done and made by you. Whether it’s making your own sticker or mason jar, it will definitely take up time while doing something creative. I would recommend using crafts that are simple and easy in a tight space.
If you have a working DVD player for your car or a laptop with power, there’s nothing better than taking a break from driving to watch a movie and have some snacks. This not only gives you time to relax, but it's perfect to cuddle up with your partner and enjoy some time away from the long trip. This keeps the road trip more relaxing and there's less stress of getting to your destination. So grab a blanket and open up a bag of chips because it’s going to be a long trip.
This is the ultimate romantic evening with your partner on a road trip. Sometimes you have to take a break from driving to admire the stars in the sky. This is especially good for when you’re coming from a big city with little to no stars to a more country area with a ton of stars. It’s better to enjoy what’s around you then to complain about how much driving you have to do.
7 Food Surfing
The best part about a road trip is trying different foods in different places. Whether it’s a restaurant that’s not available in your hometown or a new cuisine you’ve never had, it’s enjoyable for you and your partner. If you’re a foodie, keep a diary of the new places you visit so you know what to recommend to your partner or friends.
8 Video Games
They’re games and they can take up the most of your time. If you own a portable game system, playing it will probably make you think less about the trip. It’s better if you have games that you and the one who’s driving can play together. Games, in general, are fun to play even if you just have cards or a pocket Tetris.
9 Story Telling
If all else fails, telling each other about your life story or memories/experiences is a good way of getting to know each other in a fun way. It’s a good way to share personal memories that your partner might not know happened. These can be funny, embarrassing, any kind of stories that can make you both laugh or smile. Stories can bring you both down memory lane from your childhood to your current life and make you both look at your accomplishments in life.
