The Best Movies to Watch if You Love Traveling
Grab some popcorn before you begin packing your bags and sit down for a travel movie marathon. Of course, watching a movie isn’t the same as traveling in real life—but it does evoke similar emotions. And we’ve got the perfect list!
Eat, Pray, Love
Of course, this list had to begin with this Julia Roberts starrer! The quintessential travel movie, Eat, Pray, Love is on every traveler’s list. While it may seem a little cliched with the find-yourself trope, it’s quite popular—and for a good reason.
A classic starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, this one is for the oldies. Watch one of the world’s best-known actresses putting all her worries away as she basks in the glory of adventure, while Gregory Peck helps navigate.
Into the Wild
If you’re considering going out into the world and exploring for a bit, this movie about a man who hitchhikes across the United States is a good fit.
Of course, you might not see too much of Boston or Galveston when you’re watching this—but we’re sure you’ll be able to relate. Deep down, all travelers have the same wandering soul.
We all know where the quote “life is like a box of chocolates” comes from, but few people regard Forrest Gump as a movie that evokes travel inspiration. Most people view it as a movie about an adorable, lovable character who experiences a series of tragedies and interesting episodes in his life.
But we can’t forget that Forrest does go around the country—runs, in fact—and in doing so, amasses followers who travel the country with him! You might see a few familiar places when you watch this one!
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
We know, we know. It’s based on a fantasy series, and the places aren’t real. But if you think the Lord of the Rings Trilogy isn’t about travel and adventure, you’ve got it all wrong. Bilbo Baggins and the other hobbits of the Shire loved going on adventures and seeing new places—which is a good enough definition of wanderlust, wouldn’t you say?
This is a feel-good, three-part series of beautifully made films that will stay with you for a long time. After all, this is the trilogy that gave us travel lovers this undying quote: Not all those who wander are lost.
Where to Store Your Bags While Traveling
If you think baggage storage might be an issue when you’re in Las Vegas, Boston, Dallas, Atlanta, Galveston, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, or Washington D.C.—don’t worry. Cubby’s luggage storage service has got you covered. All you need to do is spend 3 minutes on the booking, and you’re good to go!
