1.  The average vacation drive is 2 hours and 53 minutes each way.

2.  The most popular 'car games' we play are the License Plate Game . . . I Spy . . . and 20 Questions.

3.  The top reason we drive instead of fly is it's cheaper.  But 41% said it's also because it gives them more "quality time" with their family.

4.  And despite the annoying parts of a road trip, 77% of parents still enjoy them.  And 78% have fond memories of road trips from the past.
