It’s summertime and I am SO excited for the road trips I have planned for the next couple of months, one being Yellowstone in Wyoming, it’s a place I have always wanted to visit, I’ve only seen photos and I have always been amazed by the Geysers.  Since I am doing a few long road trips I decided to upgrade my phone to the LG L59 – Grace for only $99.99 and I also upgraded to the Walmart Family Mobile, powered by T-Mobile $49.88 PLUS Plan with Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 15GB of 4G LTE† then 2G*.

The great thing about the plan is that there is no contract, no activation fees and more data on most of the plans with coverage on T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G LTE† network.

Map Out Your Route

Every time I go on a road trip, I use google maps, it’s easy and it’s always updated.  I do this directly from my phone and now that I have upgraded to the Walmart Family Mobile $49.88 PLUS Plan I don’t need to worry about my data running out quickly.  Using my new LG L59 – Grace phone I can quickly map out my route on a big clear screen and keep track of where I am going.  I always map out my route when taking road trips, I do this before we leave and when we are on the go, it’s convenient, organized and I don’t get lost.

Explore Your Destination

Before I travel, I like to be prepared, I love to find out about all the best places to eat, the best sight seeing opportunities and fun things to do and see along the way! First I bookmark all the places I want to visit on my phone, I read reviews of the best restaurants and I book my hotels through travel apps.  When I’m on the go and heading to my destination I love to stop and sight see on the way so it’s important for me to have good internet, that way I don’t miss any landmarks.

Keep Kids Entertained

Most of the road trips we take are at least a few hours long, my kids get bored easily. I always have movies on hand for them to watch, usually my daughter will be watching a princess movie and my son likes to flick through different options and find something that he loves.  He love to check out the movies on VUDU◊ and you can currently get a free VUDU◊ movie credit (a $7 Value!) each month when you renew your service.

Keep In Touch With Family

No matter where you go, your family always wants to know that you are safe, if you got to your destination and I’m sure they might want to video chat too! Walmart Family Mobile comes with coverage on T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G LTE† network. Not only will it help keep your kids entertained and help you find your way, it will be great for keeping in touch with your loved ones, on the go, when you reach your destination and when you want to share the world, your adventures and your vacation with them from afar.

Capture Family Moments

My favorite thing to do when I travel is take photos, whether that’s a selfie with my kids or photos of beautiful mountains, it’s a passion of mine and I’m sure most of you love to capture every moment.  The LG Grace has an 8MP Camera and 5MP front facing camera that will be your best friend for a quick, easy and light way to remember every moment of your summer vacation.  I love to record videos and take pictures, it’s just something most of us love right?

I’ve always loved Walmart Family Mobile, you have no contract, no activation fees, no late fees and it’s super easy to start up the plan or switch from your current plan. Walmart has the best pricing data and value for your hard earned money.
