Great Summer Activities to Pass the Time

Taking a summer vacation is one way to make the season memorable but staying at home, kicking back, and relaxing is another. Not every summer has to feature a new adventure and relaxing can be the best way to spend the season. We here at Parks Select Auto have some of great summer activities to make this summer the best yet!

Great Summer Activities

 

  • Swimming – One of the most obvious ways to spend summer is spending some time in the water. Whether you’re on a lake or at the local swimming pool, it’s a great way to beat the summer heat. If you have a local swimming hole nearby, its likely less crowded which means there’s more space for families. Make sure to watch the kids!
  • Grilling – Coming up with or trying out a new recipe is a great way to make summer a little more interesting. Whether its a few simple steps or something complicated, throw a slab of meat on the grill and get to work! Your taste buds will thank you.
  • Party – When all else fails, throw a party in your backyard. Whether it’s for the whole family or the neighborhood, everyone enjoys a good summer bash! You could even ask everyone to bring a dish to avoid spending too much money.

Do you have any incredible activities your family and friends enjoy doing during the warm months? If so let us know below!

How to Choose the Right Pair of Sunglasses This Summer

A pair of sunglasses offers many functions.

 

First and foremost: sunglasses are cool, and no one disputes it. But more importantly, sunglasses can increase your visibility when driving, and they can protect your eyes and the skin around your eyes from the sun. Both great pluses when out on the road.

Choose the Right Pair of Sunglasses

 

Given all that they can do for you, it’s important to choose the right pair of sunglasses. You want sunglasses that will reduce glare, fit your face, and protect you from UV rays. Going into a store with these in mind are invaluable assets.

 

Typically, polarized sunglasses do the best to reduce glare and are a must-buy for the beach and for the snow, though most sunglasses will effectively shield you from the brightness on an average day.

 

However – not all sunglasses really protect you from UV light, which can cause cataracts, wrinkles, and more. You need protection from both UVA and UVB light, so be sure to find a pair that promises 100% protection from each type. It’s for your health, we promise.

 

And if you keep a spare pair of sunglasses in your car, we promise you will never regret it! For more warm-weather driving tips, contact us or visit us anytime at Parks Mazda.
