You don't need much for a good road trip - just a car, a few road trip essentials, a stacked playlist, and a thirst for exploration. Yet, packing for a road trip can end up being one of the most stressful parts of your trip if you aren't organized. To help you hit the road, I've put together a checklist of my favorite road trip essentials - simple and useful gear that will help you maximize your time on the road. With this checklist, there's no need for a tricked out van or a daily game of Tetris, just the necessities for staying safe, saving money (on lodging and food), and having an incredible time.
