If there is one thing I love as much as going on road trips, its FOOD. Yes, I am a foodie. And whenever I go on road trips, one of the main reason other than seeing the sites and the people, its food. You can better appreciate the place you are visiting when you sample the local fare.
But what can be more exciting and a total excuse for going on a much-needed road trip than to visit Henderson, Nevada and savor the annual Great American Foodie Fest! It is “one of the largest food-centric festivals in the West Coast with an attendance of over 50,000+ foodies”. I can just imagine the hundreds upon hundreds of food fairs. The event will be attended by some of the best specialty food vendors, restaurants & gourmet food trucks from all over the US of A that have been featured on the Food Network, Cooking Channel, and Travel Channel.
If that doesn’t make your mouth water I don’t know what. But for me, that is enough reason to cross Death Valley National Park and travel 3 hours and 30 min (239.2 mi) via I-15 N. But since you’re at it, why not drive through Death Valley? This place has the highest recorded temperature in history at 134 degrees, is the lowest, driest, and hottest place in North America. But the trip can be one hell of an adventure! You can try out the tours that will take you out to the 282ft-below-sea-level Badwater Basin, an abandoned gold mine, a ghost town, and even the famous “Devil’s Golf Course” with highly jagged salt formations that were left behind from a lake that evaporated, arguably about a thousand of years ago. That is truly a site to see. You don’t even have to stop for food. Just go through the trip, build an appetite, and by the time your reach Henderson, Nevada, you have a ginormous appetite fit for the food festival.
But for now, you need to prepare your SUV for the long trip. Make sure you’ve packed everything you need and kept everything organized. I strongly suggest you use a car trunk organizer with cover.

A must-have for that hot long drive, and everyone who is too lazy to organize their car. Check out Premium Auto Trunk Organizer Car Storage Solution by AMT Pro and you will see the difference.
