The All-Time Best Travel Movies List


Since 2020 was the year that travel junkies like me had to find other outlets that didn’t entail us jumping on the next plane out of here, I found other ways to give my wanderlust the adventure it needs. No, I didn’t sneak out of quarantine and traveled the world under everyone’s noses – I did something better. I brought the world to me! I compiled an all-knowing list of the best travel movies that are a guaranteed remedy in curing any travel bugs (or enhancing them…side effects vary for each person).

Best Travel Movies List

Whether it be for date night, girls’ night, or just a Tuesday night, here is a list of movies you can watch when you are feeling just a little too far away from the rest of the world right now.

Eat, Pray, Love

Is any travel movie list complete without the #1 wanderlust movie of all time? This movie will make you want to go half-way across the world to find yourself and eat great food. This is one travel movie that I suggest you read the book first.

Julie and Julia

Since we all are gaining a love of cooking, or at least attempting to cook, this movie is perfect in giving us foodies something to aspire to while we can’t travel. If anything, we can become ballers at French cooking!

Mamma Mia

Here we go again! But does this movie really need an explanation? Blue oceans in Greece, Meryl Streep, and a romantic plot twist that involves three cool and handsome men. Oh and it is a musical. Did I cover it all? 😀
