Easy-going beach vacations are wonderful. They can also get very expensive! One great way to have an adventure without emptying your bank account is car camping.
What is car camping? To put it simply, it’s the kind of camping where you drive to your campsite as opposed to hiking.
This certainly doesn’t mean that you can’t hike. It’s just that car camping is typically less strenuous than backcountry camping. This makes it a lot easier when you are traveling with your spouse and children.
The benefits of car camping to a traditional vacation are numerous!
- A campsite is way cheaper than a hotel
- Food is cheaper (bring/cook your own food)
- More family-friendly (more things for kids to do)
- LOTS of activities, like hiking, hunting, building fire, wildlife-watching, swimming, fishing, and boating (if you stay near a lake)
- Opportunities to teach children about environment and respect for nature
- Meet new people at campsite
There is an endless amount of wonderful parks, both state and national, in the US. Each one offers its own features. Some are better than others for car camping so do your research!
The highly anticipated 2016 Honda HR-V is finally here, and buyers love it. Completely new to the Honda lineup, the HR-V brings a smaller crossover option to the market. It’s built on the same structure of the Honda Fit, but it’s been enlarged to allow for even more cargo room.
One of the best features in the HR-V is the rear Magic Seats. The Magic Seat allows you to fold the seats up to store tall cargo on the floor or down to store longer cargo in the back. The front passenger seat can also be laid flat to transport something up to 8 feet long! You don’t even have to fold the seats down to have plenty of room for groceries and luggage behind the second row.
The new HR-V is perfect for young people, couples, or small families. It seats five and offers excellent fuel economy. It has an EPA estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
Not only will you save money on gas, but you’ll get a nice bang for your buck. The base model starts under $20,000 and offers a rearview camera, 5-inch color LCD infotainment screen, remote entry and more. Stop into Sunny King Honda to see why the 2016 Honda HR-V has been so popular!
