Nothing beats getting out onto the open road. With the windows rolled down and the radio at maximum volume, it is without a doubt the best way to spend your summer. To help you on your travels, we have compiled what we think are the best road trip apps to make your journey as memorable as possible.  

FINDING BEST PLACES TO EAT?  

Whether you are thinking of hitting all the Man Vs Food hot spots or want to try everything on the IHOP menu, this app is essential for every foodie. Even if you are less of the planner and more of a fly by the seat of your pants kind of traveller, never again will your heart sink when you come across an amazing restaurant, and already be full!
