Holiday Road: My 5 Favorite Movie Road Trips


As you read this, I’m on a week-long vacation with my family. As such, I’m taking a bit of a social media break, aside from making sure posts hit Facebook and Twitter accordingly. But I didn’t want to leave you content-less, so I have two posts hitting this week. This first is lighter and fun. The second, which posts Thursday, is a deep dive into one of my favorite films.

There’s a bit of a vacation tie-in to these posts. The one hitting Thursday concerns a movie that filmed in the area where I’m currently staying. This one? Well, it’s pretty self-explanatory.

My wife and I decided to make the trek from Michigan to Florida via car. There were a few reasons behind this. One, I’m not the best flyer. Two, air travel has turned into an expensive pain lately. And three, I really like road trips. Now, I’m writing this under the assumption that a two-day, 15-hour car trip with a 5-year-old and a 1-year-old is going to go swimmingly. But I’m well aware that there are probably going to be some headaches to endure and stories that we’ll be laughing about in a few years. In honor, I thought it would be fun to share my five favorite movie roadtrips. There’s something about this particular sub-genre that delights me, and I feel we don’t get enough of them. I’d love to hear about yours! So buckle up, and let’s take a ride.
