7 Movies to Watch Before Taking a Road Trip

These films will get you in the mood to hit the road

Long road trips require a lot of planning. You have to think about what to bring, where you’ll be staying, what roads to take, etc. So by the time you’ve got everything worked out, you may have lost some of your excitement for why you’re even going in the first place.
