The Ultimate Summer Road Trip Playlist ft. DREAMERS
What’s a summer road trip without a killer road trip playlist? Cruising down the highway with the windows down, belting out your own version of carpool karaoke, en route to the next beautiful destination on your itinerary is one of the best feelings in the world. It’s moments like these that you’ll remember years later when that song comes on and a wave of nostalgia hits you as you think of the road trip of a lifetime.
Road trips and music go hand in hand, so we escaped the city from our LA campervan rental depot and hit the road to Joshua Tree National Park and Lake Havasu, California, with American rock trio DREAMERS for some fun in the desert.
