I’ve been wanting to travel to Clinton, Missouri because I know people in that state. I have a cousin around there and my grandparents are in the area as well. The great thing about it is that you can drive there pretty easily because it’s not super crowded in most areas in the state. Of course, there is more than enough to do beyond visiting people. In the long run it’s a great way to deal with spending my time on vacation when I can get some time off of work and find a place to stay at night.

It’s not ideal for me to stay with family even if they do live in the area. I don’t like to stay with them too much because they have a lot of kids and it can get crowded really fast. I’d rather just get a motel room and then have the ability to get out to where they are regularly so that I can see what they are up to. Plus, staying a little ways away means I can do whatever I wish during the day since their homes are not that ideal for traveling to the city from. I’ve got a good friend that graciously lets me use his summer home. He works for a company that does roofing in Madison WI, and it’s a great place for a retreat.

If you’re planning to travel to Clinton, Missouri by car, there are a few things you will want to know. This can be a nice place to keep a trip, but you’ll have to remember certain things if you want your trip to go smoothly.

Bring Some Snacks

Some stretches of road may not have any stops. Don’t assume that you’ll be able to pull over and go to a restaurant whenever you want to. Pack a few snacks in case you need them.

Plan Out Your Route

Signs aren’t always clear. Make sure you know which route you’re going to be taking. You definitely don’t want to get lost while you’re on your way.

Give Yourself Some Breaks

If your drive is going to be a long one, you should definitely make sure you take a few breaks. You don’t want to be tired, cramped and sore when you’re out on the road!

It can be fun to travel across the country, but it’s never fun to be caught unprepared. Before you hit the road and head towards Clinton, make sure you’re ready of the journey that awaits you. You should be able to have a spectacular vacation.
