Road Trip Essentials: Ultimate Packing List


Road trips have always been a popular way to travel in the United States. Especially with epic bucket list routes like Route 66, the Pacific Coast Highway, and the Natchez Trace.

Sometimes there are long stretches of road without any decent food options. And having snacks or sandwiches packed are such a welcome treat instead of foraging through the pre-packaged food aisle at the gas station.

Healthy Snacks: turkey or ham sandwiches, baby carrots, cucumber slices, grapes, snap peas, apricots, pretzels, apples, pears, bananas.

Protein Snacks: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, peanuts, shelled pistachios, almonds, cashews, beef jerky, string cheese, deli meat roll-ups, protein bars.

My road trip essentials typically include packing a clean shirt for every day, leggings and jeans that can be worn more than once, and one or two nice outfits in case there’s a dinner occasion to dress up.

Some travel accessories include: trunk organizer, UV window shades, water bottle, travel mug, phone charging cables, sunglasses, hair tie, and headphones.

Some toiletries include shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste, lotion, sunscreen, and face wash.
