Things You Should Never, Ever Do on a Road Trip by Condé Nast Traveler published on 2018-11-03T15:42:57Z For many of us, road trips across the U.S. were our first introduction to travel—for others who grew up abroad, the road trip was the pinnacle of American-ness. In this episode, our editors tackle the do's, don'ts, and *oh hell no's* of the road trip. And, as usual with *Traveler* editors, there is no grey area. Only the most navigation-savvy person gets to sit in the passenger seat. That's right, shotgun does not apply. The shortest person gets the middle seat (#sorrynotsorry). The driver gets the all-powerful veto on music, full stop. And wild card: Italy's Autogrill may one-up any American rest stop. Be prepared for lots of laughs, and plenty of yelling.
