16 Road Trips Inspired by Movies You Can Take Across the US This Summer

With travel looking a bit different this summer, more and more people are turning to road trips to safely satisfy their wanderlust. In addition to the perk of not having to fly anywhere, road trips allow you to appreciate the journey as well as the destination. They blend the mundane (i.e. getting gas and figuring out directions) with the extraordinary (i.e. seeing breathtaking views and exploring new places). The appeal of a memorable road trip is that you have total control and can take as many detours or make as many stops along the way as you want. (Did we also mention that road-trip snacks are pretty great, too?)

One great way to plan a road trip is to center it on a movie. There are tons of destinations in the US that feature some of your favorite films' locations, like Charleston, SC, from The Notebook or San Francisco from The Wedding Planner. Keep reading for 16 road trips to take based on movies, and as always, make sure you check openings and safety regulations for each destination. We'll see you on the road!

  • A Royal Scrapbook of All the Birthday Portraits Kate Middleton Has Snapped of Her Family

    The British royal family are known for their many traditions. While most of them are pretty formal and require certain protocol, there's one simple yet sweet tradition in particular that we look forward to every year: Kate Middleton's family birthday portraits. To commemorate a royal's special day, the palace typically releases a new batch of portraits, giving the public a more intimate glimpse at their personal life. Usually, a photographer is hired to snap these palace-approved photos, but ever since, Princess Charlotte's first birthday in 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge has put her photography skills to use and made it a tradition to take these portraits for Charlotte, Prince George, and Prince Louis. Most recently, she shared some adorable snaps of Prince William playing with their kids for his 38th birthday, and with George turning 7 on July 22, we can only imagine the cuteness that awaits us. Ahead, take a look at all the precious birthday portraits Kate has shared of her family over the years.
