As you’re looking for things to do this summer, don’t forget that your car can be more than just a mode of transportation. Continue reading to learn some easy summer car activities you can try with your family this season.

Car Activities to Try This Summer

Find a Drive-In Movie Theatre

Not every city or town has access to an old fashioned drive-in movie theatre, but with a little research, you may be surprised to find one within easy driving distance of your home. A drive in is the perfect way to spend an evening with your family, especially if you have small children who would have difficulty sitting still in a traditional theatre.

Pack a picnic dinner or your favorite movie snacks and enjoy a taste of your own childhood at the drive in this summer.

Take Nap Time Elsewhere

If you have younger kids at home but don’t want to feel locked in your house on a sunny afternoon, take nap time on the go instead. Drive to one of your favorite state or national parks — somewhere you can relax while your older kids play and explore. Set up a snack station in the cargo area or trunk of your car so the kids can serve themselves. Collapse one of the seat backs within the car and lay out a blanket, pillow, and even a favorite stuffed animal to create a comfortable area where your little one can stretch out and sleep. Open up all the windows and the sunroof to keep the cabin cool as you sit with your favorite iced coffee and a book you’ve been meaning to read while your older kids play outside.

Try Stargazing

Many cars have large or panoramic sunroofs which make stargazing the perfect summer car activity. Seats that lean back or even collapse to create a comfortable place to gaze upward will create a comfortable place to enjoy the view.

Check your local weather station to find out when the next meteor shower might be, then plan an evening to drive out of the city and park where you can enjoy the full effect of nature’s light show. Download a few stargazing apps, pack a few snacks and blankets, and enjoy the show.
