Best websites for planning a family road trip

Roadtripamerica.com erases the guesswork from long-distance driving with a calculator that estimates the cost of gas. It takes into account gas prices, your trip’s length, and “your car’s average fuel efficiency.”

Roadsideamerica.com lets you know which “offbeat attractions” fall along your route. If you hanker to see “the world’s largest ball of stamps” or “a history-of-cheesemaking mural,” this site will help plan your detour.

Momsminivan.com lists more than 100 activities to keep kids entertained on long journeys. The back-seat diversions are easy to learn and require only basic materials, such as “string, aluminum foil, and paper.”

Thebathroomdiaries.com locates “safe, clean restrooms” en route. With ratings for 9,000 domestic bathrooms and an additional 3,000 international toilets, it’s the world’s largest guide to roadside commodes.
