The road trip is a classic summer vacation. While driving down the open road with your friends or loved ones is practically an American rite of passage, it’s not always the most glamorous way to spend your week off. Spending time with family and exploring new cities? Fabulous. Sweating in a car seat all day? Much less idyllic. Luckily, with a little preparation you can avoid the worst road trip pit falls (think oily skin, wrinkly clothes, and boredom). We’ve rounded up our favorite road trip essentials, to ensure that your vacation stays exactly what it should be: gorgeous memories, new experiences, and extra long bonding sessions with your favorite people!
A good backpack and a tall water bottle are both must haves when it comes to long stretches spent on the road — we love these stylish versions of old-school necessities!
