Summer Car Fun

Summer Fun on the Road

With warmer weather, school break, and vacations just around the corner, maybe you’re wondering what you need to make the most of the summer months. If you’re looking for a vehicle to accompany you on the ultimate road trip, we have some tips for you to keep in mind.

Comfort

No matter how hot and humid it gets, the right car can feel like home. This is especially important on long trips. Ice cold air conditioning can turn hours on the road during sweltering days into a pleasure. Some vehicles offer multi-zone climate control so your passengers can adjust temperature settings to their personal liking. Looking for even more comfort options? Try cooled or ventilated seats!

Entertainment

Keep your passengers from getting bored on those long trips by going beyond basic AM/FM/CD radio. Bring along your iPod or MP3 player to customize your tunes, or look into satellite radio for more variety. DVD gives you another way to keep everyone happy, with options from one central screen to individual seatback screens.

If video gaming is your thing, look for a car that offers plenty of accessible 12-volt power ports for your handheld consoles. Or go the extra mile with in-vehicle WiFi so you can enjoy gaming, electronic books, movies, or streaming music.

Enjoy the Scenery!

If you prefer to enjoy the rolling hills, patchwork fields, and wide open spaces, why not look for a vehicle with a sunroof? Let the sunshine in with a sliding or power sunroof, and enjoy the open feeling as you cruise. Even on a gloomy day, a sunroof can add much-needed brightness or the soothing sound of a gentle summer rain as you follow the open road to your next destination!

Water Adventures

It’s no secret that Texas summers are hot and Dallas is no exception. Some of the best summer activities in Dallas deal with water: sliding down thrilling water slides, floating with the kids on lazy rivers or hitting the wave pool at the city’s best water park, Hurricane Harbor. Avoid the tourist crowds (and expensive entrance fees) by hitting up the large public pool operated by the Fraternal Order of Eagles, complete with a playground, sand volleyball, a restaurant and not one, but two bars.

For a more nature-themed water experience, hit up one of the Metroplex’s many lakes or rivers. Kayaking on the Trinity River or White Rock Lake is the perfect way to beat the sun. Or for a more traditional lake experience, spend a day fishing, laying out on the beach or camping at Lake Lewisville, between the suburbs of Frisco and Denton. Even better, take a boat out on the water to tube or water ski.

 Sit Back & Relax

Forget “Netflix and chill” during Dallas summers – just catch a free outdoor movie. The Granada Theater hosts free movie nights every Wednesday on their rooftop.

Films for 2018 include: Wonder WomanThe Big LebowskiClueless and Pulp Fiction.

They also offer a special rooftop food-and-drink menu to enjoy while you watch a classic film.

Other Adventures

Summer in Dallas is the perfect time to visit the city’s most engaging adventure parks and attractions. There’s Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, filled with thrilling roller coasters and rides for visitors of all ages. Plus, it’s the original Six Flags amusement park, making it a must-visit for any theme park fan.

The Dallas World Aquarium, in downtown’s West End, features a diverse set of exhibits and talks, though the highlight is ogling over otters, crocodiles, sharks and penguins.

In south Dallas, visitors can discover the largest and oldest zoo in Texas, complete with gorillas, cheetahs and a wide array of other exhibits. Be sure to check out their summer concert series, Safari Nights, for live music, drinks, food trucks and special animal programs.

Whatever you decide, just have a great time with your family! Enjoy the rest of the Summer, everyone!
