Road Trip Planning Apps
Roadside America App
While not free and only available on iPhones, the Roadside America app lets you see all the wonderful and weird roadside attractions that America has to offer. From historical landmarks, to bizarre museums and attractions, this app is worth the $2.99!
Road Trip - Scenic Route Planner
The Scenic Route planner app uses an algorithm to guide you to your destination along the nicest, most scenic roads! You can create your own custom itinerary and find points of interest along the drive too!
TripIt: Travel Planner
You book it, and TripIt organizes everything into a neat and tidy itinerary: As soon as you book a flight, tour, hotel, car, etc, simply forward it to email@example.com and they’ll add it to your master itinerary — it’s genius!
Road Trip Navigation Apps
TollGuru is another great app for planning out your route with toll roads. It can calculate the cheapest and fastest toll routes along your trip. You can even your vehicles information (like make and model), it’s fuel efficiency rates, and estimate costs based on fuel prices.
Road Trip Game Apps
Road Trip Music + Entertainment Apps
Spotify is my personal favorite for listening to music. Invite your friends/travel buddies to contribute to your road trip playlist, that way all passengers can add music they like! Just be sure to download the playlists to your phone beforehand so you don’t lose your tunes when driving through an area with no service.
I am late to the Podcast game, but have recently become obsessed with them — especially Crime Junkie! A long road trip is the perfect time to check out some new podcasts! There are lots of different apps to listen with:
