Road Trip With The Family: Heading to Washington, D.C. VW Routan Style

Well folks, it’s that time for families to start on their new ventures now that school is out!

With that in mind, my family and I will be going on a small road trip to Pennsylvania and we’re making two stops along the way: Lancaster & Philadelphia.  I have family in both cities (my Dad is also buried in Lancaster) so it’s mainly to visit family and of course to get away for several days.

Our last stop before heading back to New York will be Washington, D.C.  It will be the first time for everyone in my family to visit D.C. so we’re all super excited!  We have plans to see the White House, visit the Smithsonian, tour the national monuments and memorials and probably take the Washington Metro (their subway system) to check out the towns.

And if that’s not enough, we’ll be riding in style in the brand new Volkswagen Routan — their new minivan.  The vehicle is stylish, comfortable (from what I heard) extremely spacious AND it has 13 cup holders! That’s insane, huh?. It’s a perfect fit for our family of five.

I can’t wait to receive the vehicle (it’s being sent to us for review purposes only) this Friday.  My kids are hoping they can watch movies and play the Wii in the back seat.

We shall see…..


  1. How exciting! Wish you were coming to NC 🙂 I can’t wait to see the pictures and hear about your adventure. We’ve gone to DC and loved. it.

    • I wish I was going to NC too!! Just to see you! 😉 We so need this trip to get our minds cleared. We had a rough 2010 and it’s looking better, thank God.

  2. That’s sounds like so much fun. I rented a car a few weeks and was miserbly cramped. We have a couple more trips this summer and I’ll be getting something bigger for sure. Have fun!

  3. We just bought a new Routan and we love it!

    • Really? That is great! My hubby wants to buy one now too but I said first, let’s test it out on the road. LOL They are really nice vehicles.

  4. Miss you. Enjoy. Washington is a great city to take the kids. I should know, I spent my jr high school years and beyond there.
