The Ultimate Road Trip for George Strait Fans, From Marina Del Rey to Amarillo

Hit the road with the King of Country.

From Marina Del Rey to Amarillo, George Strait loves singing about places. So we thought it would be fun to create a mega road trip based off places the King of Country Music mentions in his songs.

With apologies to Honolulu, Seattle and New York City, we think it came out pretty well. If you've already tried our ultimate Texas country road trip and want a bigger challenge, look no further.

Now, we know Strait loves his Lone Star State — and it's well represented here, with Amarillo, Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston making appearances (and that doesn't even cover the towns mentioned in "All My Ex's Live in Texas," which could inspire a road trip of its own). But Strait has traveled well beyond his home state in his music with songs about heartbreak in Colorado ("Baby Blue"), a quirky love song inspired by The Grand Canyon State ("Ocean Front Property in Arizona") and more.

Read on to start planning your itinerary (and playlist) for the ultimate George Strait road trip.
