Long Weekend Road Jams

I don’t know about you, but when I think of a long weekend I’m hardpressed to find a bad memory. Somehow that extra day tacked on to the usually busy Saturday and Sunday always calls for celebration. Whether it be in a different city, taking on the sights and sounds of unfamiliar surroundings or putting your feet up on a dock by the water, long weekends are an invitation to shake off the ordinary routine and blow off some steam.

For anyone who’s heading out on a long weekend trip, you know that your adventure begins in one place… the car. Some of my favourite memories include me and my friends piling into a car, rolling down the windows, turning up the volume on the radio/CD/iPod, singing at the top of our lungs and embracing the open road ahead. And so, with the help of my fellow nuts, I have compiled a list of road jams that will be sure to make your road trip that much more enjoyable. There’s a WIDE variety of music on here, so there’s definitely something for everyone. Enjoy!
