Road Trip Playlist Songs

If you’re going on a road trip it is absolutely essential that you have an awesome playlist! As a passionate road tripper, who’s been traveling in an RV with my parents and four siblings for the last 5 years, and music lover, going on a road trip without an awesome road trip playlist the worst packing mistake you could make.

I’ve put together a complete road trip playlist to last you til the end of time (or at least 9 hours). Below is the perfect road trip playlist divided into four parts whether you’re looking for happy music, chill background tunes, head-nodding jams, or classics sing-alongs!

I’ve included a link at the bottom so you can download this entire playlist on Spotify as well as each individual playlist.
