5 Road Trip Movies To Travel With This Summer
Heading out in the car for a road trip with kids takes a lot of planning—snacks, games and something to wipe up the sticky fingers. If you need a few ideas for entertaining your fellow travelers when they (or you) need some downtime on the drive, here’s a list of five fun road trip movies.
What makes a better road trip movie than a story about Cars? While on a cross-country trip, race car Lightening McQueen gets detoured in the tiny town of Radiator Springs. But before he can hit the Interstate again, he has to repair the pavement he ripped up on Main Street. Luckily, Radiator Springs is full of an entertaining host of quirky and caring vehicles that befriend the high-strung racer.
Kermit the Frog might be a famous face now but once he was just a little green tadpole with a banjo. His journey from the swamp to the stage is told in the road trip adventure The Muppet Movie. Along the way, Kermit meets some interesting characters that decide to tag along. Once this odd menagerie of Muppets arrive in Hollywood, they put everything they have into making their dream come true.
Blu, the race blue macaw is kind of a homebody. But his significant other wants to hit the road and visit her family deep in the Amazon jungle in Rio 2. Like any prepared parent, Blu packs everything they need for the road in his fanny pack. But nothing in his pouch helps prepare him for meeting the in-laws.
Most of us go on vacation for a break. But in Winnie The Pooh, the little bear and his pals set out on a journey with a specific mission in mind—to rescue Christopher Robin from a hairy, horned creature known as the Backson. Thankfully this gentle story won’t be too scary for most children.
If you’re headed out on a long drive, it might feel like a Journey to the Center of the Earth. Fortunately this fun, updated version of the Jules Verne tale will keep road-weary children entertained with an exciting story that takes them under the Earth’s crust.
