We all know that driving long distances requires a lot of energy, focus and alertness. You should eliminate dangerous distractions and always keep your eyes on the road, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun! A road trip can go from dull and monotonous to entertaining and memorable by adding one simple ingredient — music!
Music can help the time pass more quickly (well, not literally, but you know what we mean), it can help you bond with your passengers, and it can even turn you into a temporary traveling rockstar. The team at Steve Landers Collision Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, wants you to get the full road-tripping experience, so we compiled a list of some of our favorite songs to listen to on the road. They’re sure to be invigorating and entertaining, so check them out below and start making that playlist!
