How to Make Long Car Rides More Entertaining

Even the biggest car fanatics on earth can hold their hands up and admit that long car rides are boring. Your legs start to ache, all the roads start to look the same, and you start to wish you were anywhere else but your car. Thankfully, due to modern technology and creativity, it’s easy to make long car journeys more entertaining. This way, time flies by quicker and you get to distract yourself from any boredom you’re experiencing. So, the following tips are designed to provide you maximum entertainment during those super long car rides.

Sports betting

Calling all sports fans: do you bet on sports? If your answer is no, then you’re doing yourself a disservice.

Betting adds an extra element of fun to the viewing experience, whether you’re a soccer or WWE fan. So, if you’re the passenger during a long car ride and need an instant boost, you should try some WWE betting. You’ll be able to bet on the outcome of different matches, from Raw to SmackDown.

Listen to podcasts

Listening to podcasts is the ultimate boredom killer when driving. There are all kinds of podcasters that you can listen to, from comedians to social commentators. For example, if you need a good laugh while on the road, you can put on the ‘Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend’ podcast, or ‘Why Won’t You Date Me? with Nicole Byer’.

Practice your singing voice

The best part about long car rides is the privacy that is afforded to you. You can do all the singing you want and no one will be able to hear you (unless you’re screaming the lyrics, of course).

So, the next time you’re in the middle of a journey, put your singing voice to the test while you’re listening to music or the radio.

Vlog your trip

If you’re heading somewhere interesting, like a tourist destination or celebrity signing, you should equip your dashboard with a phone stand and vlog your trip. After, you can upload it to YouTube and potentially get thousands of hits. Remember, many famous vloggers started their channels on a whim with no intention of becoming famous – so, you never know what might happen.

If you do decide to vlog your trip, make sure to inform the viewer about relevant details; from the purpose of your travels to your schedule for the day.

Play “Would You Rather?”

This one requires more than one person in the vehicle.

“Would you rather?” is the all-time classic car trip game.

It’s funny, entertaining, and puts people’s thinking skills to the test. Here are some of the best “Would you rather?” questions to try.

Clear your mind

Modern life is hectic (to say the least), which often leads to people’s minds becoming clustered. Fortunately, this can easily be solved through carefully thinking and deliberation. And a car journey is the perfect time to do it.

Turn off your music, roll down the window, and set your thoughts straight over the next hour. You’ll feel a lot better afterwards!

The Professor’s Mustang Boss 302

I’m currently working on an island in the Pacific Ocean but the car I’m selling is stored in Vaughan.

I had a client very interested in a Mustang Boss 302 that’s being sold on the Internet and which is currently stored in Washington State. The seller was working out of the country and had arranged for the storer to collect the funds of the sale. The so-called seller had also arranged to steal the identity of a university professor as being the seller.

When we went online to check on the professor and her status, she existed and had a wonderful bio. The problem was that she didn’t own the car and there was a complicated arrangement where you had a limited time to see the car and hand over the money before you lost it for good.

The price wasn’t outstanding but it was a desirable model and had a good history. Obviously, we advised our client not to take the bait. This scheme wasn’t as outlandish as the tow truck driver in Texas who had found an Aston Martin in someone’s backyard and who said we could buy it if we sent $500.00 for him to secure the car, but it was convincing enough that a well educated professional would want to hire us to check the deal out.
