You may use your car mostly to get to and from work, to the point that you may dread even sitting in it. Refresh and enjoy yourself in the summer by putting your car to more recreational uses.
Don’t just sit on the beach this summer; get a boat and experience the waves firsthand. Most larger cars can pull boats, which are a fun investment for families who love the water. Bring your family and friends, and don’t forget the life jackets and snacks. Replacement parts for boats are easy to obtain and allow you to spend your time on the water rather than in a repair shop.
Store your bike inside your trunk or buy a rack and store it on the back of your car. By driving to your biking destination, you’ll ride by different things than you usually do if you are a regular biker. Take in some mountain scenery or find a historical trail that leads by old buildings. When you arrive exhausted back at the parking lot, your car will be waiting to take you home.
Don’t let the mileage stack up on your car without getting some pleasure from all its use. Visit a state that you’ve never seen before or take your family to your favorite childhood vacation spot. You’ll have more control over the timing of your trip than you would if you flew, and you won’t have to pay extra to bring all the food, games and luggage you need. Plan stops on the way to scenic overlooks or other tourist attractions.
Driving can easily become a chore. By putting your car to different uses, you’ll remember the exhilaration of when you first earned your driver’s license. All your good memories associated with cars will come back, and you’ll make some new ones as well.
