Some of you may be wondering why you wouldn’t just turn on the rear-seat entertainment center and let the boredom take care of itself. That’s a valid response for someone who has a DVD player in their vehicle, but that’s not as common as you may think. If you’re wondering which pre-owned vehicles we have on our lot that includes an entertainment center, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Sometimes, after it’s been years since you learned something, you may have forgotten a thing or two about it. We’ve all been there – stuck in the car on the highway in the middle of nowhere when Great Aunt Sharon wants to start playing ‘I Spy’, ‘20 Questions’ or ‘the Alphabet Game’.
Next time, instead of instantly putting in your headphones and burying your face in your phone, we challenge you to take part in the games and remember just how much fun they can be. They’re great for the whole family to join in, and not to mention it will make the time go much faster when you’re not constantly dwelling on it. Check out the details below for refreshers on how to play these three classic road trip games.
