Americas Best Value Inn Launches ‘Are We There Yet?’

Travel tips for parents and printable activities for kids of all ages!

CLEVELAND, March 8 /PRNewswire/ — No family vacation would be complete without the backseat cries of “I’m bored! I’m hungry! Are we there yet?” As any parent can attest, these cries are usually heard within 30 minutes of leaving the driveway.

Americas Best Value Inn is offering parents a fighting chance to address these frustrations with its link “Are We There Yet?” on the chain’s website, The site includes advice for parents on everything from packing a suitcase and pre-vacation car safety, to creative ways to reward good behavior and prevent car sickness. The site also features activities, card game rules, sing-along songs, trivia, memory games, and educational activities that parents can print in advance to keep their children entertained while on the road.

“The average family of four will spend in excess of $3,000 this year on an extended vacation,” said Roger Bloss, CEO, and President of Americas Best Value Inn. “That’s a tremendous amount of money to spend without being prepared to handle the stress and anxiety that can accompany a family vacation. “Are We There Yet?” offers advice in a light-hearted, humorous manner, reminding parents that the best part of life is in the journey.”

“The printable games and activities on this site promote family interaction,” said Peter Frantz, Marketing Director. “Being stuck in a car for an extended period is the perfect time to ask kids to put down the electronic devices and interact with the rest of the family. The time spent traveling together is what they’ll remember when they are adults.”

“Are We There Yet?” will be updated regularly with new activities and travel tips. To view the link, go to
