How to Create a Road Trip Playlist the Entire Family Will Love

Summer is in full swing around our house, and that means a lot of time in the car, going on beach trips, heading to the river, camping trips, day trips and just making the most of summer “freedom days”. Because my kids and I are all music lovers, our favorite way to pass the time on a road trip is to just turn on some music and sing along. Allow me to give you some tips on creating a road trip playlist the whole family will love.

We love listening to our local pop radio station. Every summer I also like to compile a “summer playlist” on my phone of some of our favorite hits of the year, as well as some older songs, and classics (to help my kids be eclectic music lovers). I love that my car has entertainment options that allow me to play all of these options easily, giving us great music diversity for long road-trips.
