5 Must-Haves For Your Next Girl’s Road Trip

Choose your destination, round up the girls, and pack your bags! Now that you’re set on your road trip, it’s time to make sure you have all the essentials for an unforgettable experience. Having all of the right items can make the journey to your destination so much better for you and your girlfriends. Here are five must-haves for your next all girls road trip.

Comfortable outfits

On a long road trip, fashion must-haves can make all of the difference. If you’re hitting a chic destination and want to look good while enjoying a day on your feet, you’ll want to pack comfy clothes with style. Dress in layers such as these casual midi dresses that you can adjust based on how warm or cool it is; then stock up on travel clothes that fit well and will keep you looking great from breakfast to dinner. Pack comfortable clothing that meets at least one of these three criteria: (1) They are quick-drying; (2) They are wrinkle-resistant; (3) They are no maintenance like yoga pants or leggings, which take very little time to get ready for a day on your feet.

Sunscreen and shades

No matter how old you are, it’s important to always wear sunscreen, especially if you’re planning on being outside. If you want an even easier way to remember to wear sunscreen, make sure it’s in your bag. And don’t forget about sunglasses! Sunglasses can go a long way towards protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. Remember: The sun is strongest between 10 AM and 4 PM, so be sure that your travel plans take that into account. Wearing both sunscreen and sunglasses will greatly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer down the road. A great pair of shades can also do wonders for improving any outfit!

Snacks and drinks

Make sure you’re stocked up on snacks that will keep your energy levels high while you travel. Things like granola bars, trail mix, nuts, dried fruit, and nonfat or low-fat yogurt are all great options. Don’t forget to bring along your favorite drink (we love water or freshly squeezed juice) so you can stay hydrated as well. A car charger is also a must! If you have a cell phone (and who doesn’t these days?), then it’s important to charge it while driving so you can keep in touch with people along your route and make sure they know where to meet up with you. If you girls want to bring along a well-loved companion-Mary Jane-with you, then stock up on some juicy buds and accessories to aid as well. Be sure to do enough research about the places you plan to visit (regarding legalities), and look up blog posts like to know how to plan a perfect “weedcation”!

Road trip playlist

Make a playlist of songs to sing along to on your road trip. Consider what time of day you’ll be driving, how long your trip will be, and if any special events are happening that weekend that you want to know about. Add in a few fun game songs for whenever you’re feeling bored, maybe the soundtrack to your favorite rom-com or the latest Bruno Mars album for when you stop for food and need something to entertain you while waiting in line. If you can’t decide on one song, make sure your playlist is at least two hours long so there are plenty of songs for every mood.

Chargers, cameras, and phones

When planning your next girls’ road trip, make sure you have chargers for all of your electronic devices. The last thing you want to happen is getting stuck with a dead battery when out and about exploring new places. Charge up! Whether it’s a backup charger or an external battery that can be used to charge multiple devices at once, having one on hand for a girls’ road trip is a must. If you’re traveling abroad, don’t forget to get an adapter as well; otherwise, it may be difficult to top off your device.

You’ve already got everything you need for your next girl’s road trip: friends, your favorite music, and plenty of snacks. Now, don’t forget to make memories that will last by taking all of the photos and videos that you can. Safe travels!
