Smartphones are ideal for road trips. One little device can give you directions, book a hotel, call your mom and take photos along the way. (Before you hit the road, make sure you've read our 8 travel tools for the mobile photographer.)

At Connect, we looked through the #roadtrip hashtags on Instagram, Vine, Flickr and EyeEm to find the most quintessential moments of a summer drive and even included a one of our own. So roll the window down, pop in your favorite cassette and put your feet up on the dash. We're going for a little drive.
