5 Characters I Think It Would Be Super Rad to Road Trip With

If you're anything like me, there are fictional characters you wish could be your real life best friends. But what if we took it up a notch?

As we all know, road trips are ultimate fun. These characters, however, are going to take the meaning of "road trip" to a whole new level.

1. Andy Dwyer from Parks and Recreation

Oh, come on. We all know that this guy would be the best road trip companion ever, especially if you like fun. Driving down the interstate in South Dakota? You are stopping to go to Wall Drug. You secretly wanted to anyway, you just didn't want to mention it.

2. Kimmy Schmidt from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Kimmy is one of the most cheerful, fun-loving characters. She's an eternal optimist and would be just the right person to take on a trip across the country. She'd find all the fun places to eat and out-of-the-way bookstores.

3. Nick Miller from New Girl

Nick is a wonderful, grumpy man. While at first he might seem to be an odd choice for someone to take on a road trip, I think he would make it ten times more fun. Nick is the friend that starts weird conversations that end up being awesome. Nick is the friend that picks all the weird music that you actually end up liking. He's the perfect road-trip companion. Nick will also drive in the middle of the night when no one else wants to.

4. Maeby Fünke from Arrested Development

If you bring Maeby along, there's a chance you'll break the law, but there's an even bigger chance that you will have mega-tons of fun! But honestly, she does have a good head on her shoulders, and you definitely won't die. 

5. Bruce Banner from Marvel

There are two reasons why I want Bruce on this road trip. First, we need someone who will keep them from doing overly dumb things. Second, the man needs to learn how to have fun. (Also, he's really funny, and I think the others would learn to love his wonderful quirkiness.)

 Do you like road trips? What characters would you take?


  1. Aww yes! I'd definitely sign up for a road trip with Andy & Bruce. :)

    I think I'd like to invite Bilbo along for the ride, maybe Percy Jackson, and probably Foggy Nelson to bring the fun along too. :)

    1. Bilbo and Percy Jackson!! That would be the BEST. :D Foggy Nelson is from Daredevil, right? I STILL NEED TO WATCH THAT.

    2. yessss. & you should watch it. I could even give you 13 reasons why you should... ;)

  2. This is a fantastic post! I love how creative y'all are at TFI.
    That being said, I would love to go on a road trip (possible space and time trip?) with the 11th Doctor because he is so hilarious and a lot of fun, Merlin and Arthur ooh, and Gwain, from Merlin, Eowyn from LOTR, and just because we need to balance this out with a little more girl power here, Jo March and Princess Cimorene from Dealing With Dragons. I think we'll be needing a van for this road trip...

  3. Just to share rooms and double the fun, my all-girl road trip would involve Diana to show her some fun and be the designated sober driver, Natasha Romanoff to get with the NC-17 jokes, Jessica Jones to get drunk with, Amy Pond from Doctor Who to have a laugh, and Uhura from Star Trek to enjoy her amazing voice. We all in tankinis and in a red Corvette, of course.
