I think I speak for most of Americans when I say that the summer season = vacation season!  Right?!  Whether that be heading to the beach for a long weekend, hiking and camping in the mountains, or even “staycationing” by going to the pool everyday for a week.  We all love to take our minds off the everyday hustle for a bit and just get away!  One of the many forms of transportation to said vacations is taking a road trip!  Flying is typically my first choice, but I grew up taking MANY road trips with family and think they can be great too!  If done the right way 😉  Which is why I wanted to share my top 5 summer road trip essentials with you today in hopes they help you out for all your upcoming summer trips!

5 Summer Road Trip Essentials:

  1.   A comfy outfit – DUH!  Haha.  But seriously, being stuck in the car for hours in a stuffy, constricting outfit is no fun!  This sweatshirt is perfect for summer road trips because I don’t know about you, but I love to be bundled up on a long ride.
  2.   Yummy snacks!! – Can’t have a road trip without good snacks!  My personal favs are Target cinnamon gummies, Larabars, Living Intentions malted maple superfood nut blend, and Alter Ego chocolate.  I’ve started to try and incorporate more healthy snacks in my diet and it’s been going well!  “Researching” what I like hasn’t been that bad either 😛
  3.   Easy shoes to slip in and out of – these sandals have been my go-to’s recently because they’re just so comfortable and easy!  I wore them while walking around in NYC this week and my feet didn’t hurt a bit.
  4.   A roomy bag to carry #allofthethings – I love having lots of stuff with me when traveling and this backpack has always been a good travel bag.  I’ve had mine for a couple of years are continue to reach for it when going on a road trip!
  5.   A bomb playlist!! – I usually let my sister, Lauren, take care of this one haha.  She has the best taste in music!

Well there you have it, my summer road trip essentials!  Are y’all taking any road trips this summer?  Where ya headed?  Let me know in the comments below!
