Google and TripAdvisor team up to offer city-themed playlists for your summer travels

Summer’s around the corner, and TripAdvisor wants to help you plan your vacation with a side of music to get you hyped. Today, the company announced a partnership with Google Play Music to offer playlists for popular travel destinations, such as London, New York, Cancun, Montreal, Paris, and more.

99328ca7-5135-4955-8ad2-8578f5b60cf0The playlists are supposed to emulate the vibe at these destinations, Latin-inspired dance tunes for Miami and Bay Area rap for San Francisco, to name a few. Not sure when I last heard Elvis Costello in a downtown New York City dive bar though.

Ever been to a tech festival?

You’ll be able to access these playlists through TripAdvisor’s Android app, which will give you two free months of Google Play Music. After that, it’s $9.99 a month to keep the jams going.

Services like Spotify already offer themed playlists for road trips and rainy nights, but this is another option if you’re looking for a free service to trial as you galavant around the world this summer.
