My Favorite Tunes for on the Road Organized by Genre

The Perfect Unheard of Road Trip Playlist Summer 2018

I can spend hours searching for new music and even longer listening to it all. I have about 40 playlists organized by genre, mood and date. If there’s one thing I live just as much as music, it’s raveling. I LOVE to travel and drive on a long highway or along the coast. So I decided to put together this playlist that gives off those summer road trip. I have a very broad music taste and try to make playlists that have something everyone can enjoy. I also organized it by genre and mood so you can find the music best suited for your trip. So, enjoy finding some new songs to jam to in the car on your adventures!

Chill: Alternative R&B/Pop
