The Ultimate American Road Trip Playlist

Visiting America feels like travelling in a movie. Maybe because so many films we’ve grown up with over the years are based there, but every time I visit I get so excited about the simple things like Motels, supersize eats and even just using the US dollar. It’s like being in a real life film!!

Are you following? Probably not haha, but hopefully we can agree that an all-American road trip is a firm fixture on any bucket list.

Driving in America is just fabulous. The country is just so big and the roads are so wide. You can drive for miles without seeing a soul and the freedom you feel of racing through the most incredible landscapes is a breathtaking experience. Of course, there are many famous routes you can go, but wherever your American road trip takes you, the most important thing you’ll need (apart from a full tank of gas, drinking water and snacks!) is a killer playlist.

So, if you’re planning your trip make sure to get these songs on your Spotify for the best sing-a-long, groovy American drive of your life.
