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

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
