When it comes to a three day weekend, the road trip is the perfect solution for seeing some cool sites and doing some cool things, without having to take vacation time. But the tradition of the Great American Road Trip wouldn't be as storied as it is without the help of some sweet, sweet tunes. There's nothing more American than being on the open road, shamelessly rocking out to your favorite song as you look for new adventures – just ask Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman.

Not even long-time musicians are above the call of the road trip sing/lync-along. And to get you ready for your venture onto the open road, we've found some awesome music mixes for you to play while you cruise through the city or bounce by the beach. Get your folk, pop, and hip hop on with these 3 sweet playlists that you don't even have to click the next button on! Just hit play and hit the road:

1. Indie/Folk Feels Playlist

When you need a smooth cruise to take in the city around you and feel the wind blowing through your hair, throw on this playlist featuring OK Go, Brand New, Iron & Wine, and more to get you in the mood for feeling free.

2. Pop Sing-A-Long Playlist

These are the tunes you and your friends will want to belt to as you drive off to the beach for a day in the sun. Sing to T-Swift, Lorde, and Ed Sheeran, and others on this Best Songs of Spotify 2017 list; and don't forget to hold on to your sunhats!

3. Hip Hop, Ya Don't Stop

Sometimes you just need to let the "rap star on vacation" out of you and listen to bumping jams songs by Logic, The Dean's List, and G-Eazy. You might not be driving in a Cadillac on your way to your yacht party, but you can feel like it with this Hip Hop, Rap, and R&B playlist.
