Hi! I’m Leah. Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I live with my husband and 3 kids outside of Rochester, New York. In 2016 I started Five for the Road to share my love of travel and creating family memories, and help others do the same. We share family fun destinations, theme park guides, and more!

What Inspired Five for the Road

As a kid I loved getting in the car and going for drives. They were mini-adventures. Often stopping for ice cream along the way or at a park.

It was the feeling of togetherness and family bonding. We connected. Now more than ever that connection needs to be nurtured. Families are busy and prioritizing family time is so important.

I started Five for the Road to encourage families to embrace their own family adventures. 

It could be a day trip, a mountain climb, or playing baseball in your backyard.

It is about creating family connections and memories
