Summer has arrived in Jacksonville!  The kids are all officially out of school, the temperatures are up into the 90's, and there's a slight chance of afternoon showers every day.  All strong indications of summertime in Florida!


Your Subaru definitely shines in the winter and fall with it's AWD capabilities, guiding you throw snow, rain, or the mountains with ease.  Your Subaru also loves the summer!  There are a ton of great activity options that you, your family and your Subaru can embark on this summer.


Camping: Your Subaru is built for camping!  It's an affordable, relaxing escape that family members, both young and old, will enjoy.  To stock up on camping gear, we would suggest visiting our friends at Black Creek Outfitters.  They are a local, family owned business that has an incredible selection of outdoor gear plus great deals.  They're Subaru lovers, too!


After you're appropriately equipped for your camping adventure, the next step is to select a location.  Jacksonville offers many camping options, several just steps away from the beach.  Some of our favorites are:


Huguenot Park:  Home to more than 70 campsites on a peninsula that boasts 360 degree views of the St. John's River, the Atlantic Ocean, and Ft. George inlet.   Huguenot Park has excellent fishing, wildlife spotting, and sunning.  It's also the only location in Northeast Florida where you can take your Subaru and drive on the beach! 


Hanna Park: This site has got it all - cabins, beachy sand dunes, and trails to explore Florida's nature and wildlife offerings.   Hanna Park also has a great lake where you can rent boats, and it's a kid favorite.  Pets are also welcome at Hanna Park!


Talbot Island State Park: For the hesitant camper in your life, check out Talbot Island.  It also has beautiful beach views, but also has bath houses and each campsite has electricity, water, and an in-ground fire pit.  Talbot Island makes camping easy for all members of your family!  Put the bikes on top of your Subaru and bike along the beach or beautiful nature trails.


Tailgating: Summer also means football season is just around the corner!  Your Subaru is perfect for packing up all of your tailgating favorites - your grill, meat and sides of choice, games, your own football, cooler full of beverages and your friends and loved ones for a great day of cheering on your favorite teams.
