3 Items to Improve Your Family Road Trips in Indiana

Lexus RX | Mishawaka, IN

Indiana offers many beautiful destinations for your next road trip, and these products are must-haves to make your family’s excursion more enjoyable. We recommend equipping your Lexus SUV with these items to make your Indiana road trip more relaxing and your vacation more enjoyable.

Sun Shades

Riding with the sun shining directly into your eyes can be annoying and cause headaches, especially if you’re a young child. Protect your kids’ sensitive eyes and allow them to nap in peace with sun shades. You can find a variety of products that will provide extra shade from the glaring sun, whether you want a cheap, generic one to hang over the window or a custom-fit one to mount to the ceiling.

Over-The-Seat Storage

Use the space in your SUV more wisely by equipping it with seatback storage units where children can stash their loose items. This will keep their junk off their floors and seats, giving them more space to stretch out during the ride and easier cleanup when you arrive at your destination.

Travel Tray

Provide your child with many activity possibilities by strapping a travel activity tray onto their child seat. You can buy an elaborate unit to serve as a mobile desk, which can hold a tablet for watching movies, craft supplies for coloring, and books to read.
