Let's all just take a moment right now to accept the futility of our best-laid plans for an unplugged vacation this holiday weekend. If you're anything like us, then you and your smart phone could probably qualify as conjoined twins. And you know what? It's okay, because they are gonna help take those Fourth of July travel plans to the next level.

If you're traveling by plane, be sure to check out The Five Best Travel Apps; but if you're staying a little closer to home, you'll want to download these five apps before you hit the road.

5. Gas Guru

This app won't direct you to any old gas station during your travels. Instead, it'll show you the ones with the cheapest gas. Gas Guru is useful even when you aren't traveling, but on road trips, the savings are even more noticeable. You can also use the app to find nearby restaurants, coffee shops, and ATMs in case you're looking for a little more than a quick fill-up. We also think you'll appreciate the clean and simple user interface.
