Ultimate Summer Road Trip Playlists

If there’s a season with a soundtrack, it’s summer. And there’s no better place for the soundtrack of summer than on a road trip. Moon Guides clearly understands this, because it has come out with four road trip playlists you can stream from its website. You can also go to its Spotify channel to find extended playlists for each. Because road trips are long, and music is essential.

The eclectic playlists have a little something for everyone, which we really like. Chuck Berry shares playlist space with Jonathan Richman on the Road Trip USA playlist; and Nirvana, Sleater-Kinny, and Death Cab for Cutie represent on the Northwest Road Trip mix. Three of the four playlists are place specific; rounding out the offerings is the recently released Pride Month Road Trip playlist, featuring Lady Gaga, Madonna, Tegan and Sarah, and more.

Whether you’re looking for a soundtrack for your summer road trip or want music to inspire your next destination, these playlists have you covered:
