Prepare For Your Road Trip and Check Your Headlights

It’s likely that wherever you travel across the country, you will drive during the night time and in times of low visibility.

The Florida Keys is filled with great destinations and amazing snorkeling. If you have a boat or a jet ski, then bring them to the Keys!!

    6. Those are all fantastic ideas! Let us not forget St. Petersburg, FLA. It’s a gorgeous city with tons of parks and beaches and a dog bar downtown.

    7. I’m am predicting a surge in vacations once everything clears up. People are going crazy staying home for over a month, change of scenery is needed.

    8. These are some great destinations that I have not even thought of. Especially, the grand Canyon and Olympic National Park Washington. These destinations are so beautiful that at first I wouldn’t even think to check my headlights. Good to have a reminder safety first.

    9. I love a good road trip. The best destinations are the most beautiful when done on the road. I have visited the Smoky Mountains a few times. You definitely need some great visibility up and down those windy mountains. Though I’ve been to the Keys a few times, I’ve surprisingly never thought to drive there. I can imagine how nice that view would be. This gave me a few places to add to my list.

    10. We love road trips on the Harley, our go to locations are the keys and Orlando. The keys are a great ride, its very relaxing and there are lots of great spots to stop and eat. Florida’s west coast is a lot of fun as well.

    11. You don’t always have to go to a huge destination either. There are a lot of quaint little towns within a few hours of you.
