Road Trip!!!

We just returned from a road trip to Washington D.C. and I found two great apps I thought I would share.  I know it really has nothing to do with technology in the classroom, but hey it's summer and many of us are on vacay!

The first web site/ app I used to plan everything was Roadtrippers!  It is a great site to plan everything !  I was able to map out my entire trip and find locations and accommodations along the way.  I planned everything on my computer and can easily pull up the entire itinerary on my iPhone.  Check out this short video that explains it.

On our last road I introduced the girls to the license plate game.  We played it old-school style, writing down each state we found on paper.  However, it was difficult to figure out which states we were missing.  So for this trip, we found an app for that!  

The License Plate Game app was great on our trip!  We found all but 4 plates on our trip.
