Some of my favorite childhood memories involve riding in the car on family road trips.

My sisters and I would each claim our portions of the back seats. After that we’d drive about 11 hours to Myrtle Beach.

We’d always stop for homemade peach ice cream about halfway through. 

As with any family, my sisters and I also would inevitably bicker, so I think my parents were thrilled when technology improved and we could do movie marathons in the back seat.

Road trips can be chaotic, but honestly, they lead to some of the best memories.

Check out these road trip quotes for the perfect Instagram or photo album caption for your road trip photos.
