Beach Songs For Your Spring Break Road Trip Soundtrack

Even if the road trip does not involve going along the coast or driving to the beach, many surf rock or beach bands can provide the perfect road trip soundtrack.

These bands don’t provide the classic Beach Boys vibe of poppy surf rock, but instead provide calming ethereal background noise that make it perfect for maintaining a conversation while window gazing and appreciating the scenery outside and around you on your drive. If you are road tripping to the beach, then these bands and songs are even better, creating anticipation for the final destination and stepping out onto the sand and crashing into that first wave.
