The Ultimate Road Trip Playlist

ULTIMATE ROAD trip playlist

“All you need is that perfect song, on that perfect drive, to feel infinite.” – Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Real talk, road trips are the best kind of trips. You don’t have to worry about the hassle of checking bags or going through security at the airport. Public transportation is more or less for peasants so I won’t go into traveling by bus or train. To me, there is nothing better than hopping in your car and hitting the open road.

And what good is a road trip without some tunes to help you through the miles? Long gone are the days of making a mix for your CD player, so instead I created a playlist which can also be found below and on Spotify. Whether you are heading to the beach, the lake, or following my road trip suggestions here, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite songs to help you on your way. Turn it up and let the good times roll.
