Picture this: it’s a perfectly warm summer afternoon. There’s nary a cloud in the sky, you’ve got a full tank of gas and a three-day weekend ahead of you. Pack a cooler and your overnight bag, because it’s time for a road trip! With summer winding down, this may be your last opportunity to hit the open road.

In addition to packing your favorite road trip snacks (which we argued over heartily here at our office, but settled on–at very least–a salty bag of pretzels and a fizzy Coke), kick your road trip into high-gear with the ultimate end of summer road trip playlist!
