As a kid, I remember driving all over the place for family vacations and we did not have iPads, iPods or DVD players. However, the thought of taking my two boys across the country without electronics makes my stomach turn.
I asked our readers on facebook what ideas they had for frugal fun car activities and I got 77 responses everything from getting a Nintendo DS to stocking up on Benadryl! (LOL!) Seriously though, here's a few of the tips our readers posted:
