As you get ready to embark on a midsummer journey, make sure you have the perfect vehicle to get you there, like the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV; however, before you hit the road and get overloaded with the kids’ burning question, “Are we there yet,” be sure to bring these items with you so you can enjoy a stress-free travels with your little ones.

It’s your child’s most precious possession. Do not leave home without it no matter how torn or ratty. It’ll make the road trip more enjoyable for him or her and for you too.

Accidents happen. Pack an extra set of clothes in a ziplock bag and keep it inside your GLE. You’ll thank us later.
