Best Cars for Summer Road Trips


Summer road trips bring to mind coolers full of cold drinks, visits to sandy beaches and a car full of family or friends. Naturally, a situation like this brings about a lot of potential mess. Some cars are better at handling this than others, though you can prepare your car by adding the best floor liners for cars and other accessories. Here are some of the best cars for summer road trips.

Toyota Camry Hybrid

The new popularity of hybrid cars is great for saving money on the cost of gas. The 2018 model of the Camry has an enviable MPG of 51 for street driving, and 53 on freeways. This incredible mileage will get you far without shelling out as much cash for fuel. It has five seats and a comfortable, roomy interior that will prevent passengers from feeling cramped during long hours of driving.

Subaru Outback

This car has a minivan shape, and provides extra room for passengers and driver alike to stretch out and has more space overhead. The trunk space can hold camping equipment, duffel bags and more. It comes with four wheel drive to keep you rolling even through back roads that may not be paved. Protect the front end of your car from mud as well as dings and scratches during all your outings with custom car bras designed to fit perfectly over the unique shape of your car.


Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep has always been known as an adventure vehicle, and the Wrangler is a classic choice for offroading and traversing the wild unknown. The big tires, four wheel drive and incredible traction make it the perfect choice for fording rivers and crossing muddy ground. The doors and roof are removable, so you can really experience nature as you drive through it. The Jeep is the perfect choice for a road trip through rural areas without paved roads.

Honda Accord Hybrid

Save on gas and avoid worrying about constant top-ups with the excellent mileage on this vehicle. This hybrid allows you to drive 47 miles per gallon both on the street and the highway. The backseat is spacious, so your passengers can be comfortable even several hours into your trip. It also has a powerful 212 horsepower drivetrain to propel you through cities and states. Keep things cool even in the summer sun with a custom windshield sun shade that blocks out the sun while you’re parked.

Chevrolet Tahoe

This big truck is the best choice for hauling around a big family, and maybe even a furry friend or two. The standard seating configuration seats 8, but it can be adjusted to hold 9 passengers. The large sizes give passengers plenty of breathing room, and the extra comfort can make long trips seem a little shorter. The SUV has a towing capability of 8,500 pounds, so you can pull a trailer along with you for camping or storage purposes.

When you rent or buy one of these vehicles with the intention of making a road trip, be sure to fit them out with accessories that will keep them proteted from the sun and other elements. Seat covers, floor mats and more make a huge difference in vehicle maintenance.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
