Great question Lisa! "Hit the road" = leaveEx: Hey Mike, this party is boring, let's "hit the road."You usually say "hit the road" when you want to leave a place soon or immediately.If any other students have tips about using the phrase "Hit the road" please post them here.
I usually say "Let's hit the road." When I'm talking with my friends that are the same age. But I don't use it much when I'm with older people.-Ivan (Bulgaria)
You're saying "hit the road" means leave.I wanna know if it means "having a journey" too?
"Hit the road" can also be used if you are going on a journey or road trip. (Road trip means a journey by automobile.)So basically, "hit the road" can be used almost anytime you want to leave, and usually leave quickly.Another alternative is to say "take off."ex: 1. "This party is boring, let's take off."2. "What time are you taking off for your road trip tomorrow?"
