When it comes to long weekends, one of our favorite things is hitting the open road—grabbing a couple besties for relaxing at the beach or for a spontaneous day trip to explore a neighboring city. Like any good adventure, leaving some details to chance is part of the fun; as long as you have excellent music, a great pair of sunnies and a few key essentials, you’ll be good to go. We’ve put together a short list of road trip–worthy pieces for a quick getaway. The rest is up to you (like whether you want to create an epic video of the journey).

Check out our Vacation Essentials Guide, with everything you’ll need to pack for the perfect getaway—from Santorini to the Seychelles.
