ROAD TRIP READY: WHERE TO GO

2013 Ford Explorer

So, vacations haven’t been planned and summer is here.  What to do now?  Well, the open road doesn’t need any reservations so, hop in the car and let the fun begin! Whether you would like to go on a short day trip or a full-fledged road trip we have lots of options for you today. 

Make a Day of it!

So, you may not have the cash flow to support a full blown vacation.  But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun this summer!  Our location provides us with great access to some of the country’s greatest resources whether that is national parks, historical sites, or local vineyards.  In our search for resources online to help you plan a fun day trip we discovered www.capitalregionusa.org , which offers numerous trip ideas in the surrounding areas. 

History within Reach! Washington, DC is a mecca for great historical family trips!  Since we live so close by some of us take it for granted and don’t utilize this wealth of information and opportunity to its full advantage.  But, we urge you to take a quick trip down to our nation’s capital.  If you are one of the few that has actually been a million times Philadelphia, PA isn’t too far away.  It also has a great supply of our country’s early historical milestones: the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (Birthplace of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution), and Betsy Ross’s home where she sewn the first Stars & Stripes, among many other sites and sounds.

Beach Time

Its summertime and you’re craving the sand in your toes and the wind in your hair, so don’t deny yourself some beach time.  We are lucky enough to have a few options less than 3 hours away when it comes to the sandy summer pastime of lounging at the beach: Ocean City, MD and Rehoboth Beach, DE just to name a few.

A Road Trip You’ll Never Forget

Designated in 1926, Historic Route 1 is the oldest highway serving the East Coast. Stretching 2,450 miles from Maine to Florida, this US historic road is home to landmarks such as the Bronx Zoo, FBI headquarters, and Okefenokee Swamp.  Academy Ford just so happens is located right on Route 1.  So, let your trip start here.  The only decision you have to make is, “North or South?”  Check out the history of Route 1 here
