Taking a Road Trip in the New 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe #Spons

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe

This summer in mid July I took a road trip all around the state of Massachusetts.  It was a really fun first visit to the state.  I have so many wonderful memories from this trip.  I was able to drive to a different town on each day of the trip.  I felt safe and happy especially on the first day.  Summer means rain and we were lucky to have just one day of rain and boy did it pour.  At times there was barely visibility.  I knew we would be safe in the Chevrolet Tahoe because it is high above the ground meaning we would have no problem getting through the puddles that sometimes accumulate on old back roads.  I felt at ease driving through the bad weather with my family in the car because of the many safety features.

Onstar directions and automatic response.

Forward collision alert.

Side blind zone alert.  This is one of my favorite features for sure.  An orange light would appear in the sideview mirror whenever a car or truck was anywhere near.

Tire pressure monitor.

Lane departure and safety seat alert.  Yes the seat would vibrate to alert me.

Front fog lamps.

Rain sensing windshield wipers.

20 inch polished aluminum wheels.

Since it was my first time visiting Massachusetts I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as the driving terrain.  It turned out to be mountainous and hilly.   While exploring the Cape we stopped in quaint little towns and villages.  One of the things I wanted to do was climb the Scarborough tower for the view.  Getting up there was tricky but luckily the Tahoe has a built in GPS system which has different displays of the map and even the weather.  I felt powerful driving up the steep bends behind the wheel of this V8 engine with four by four wheel drive.  The scenery was quite beautiful.  Even with the gray sky there was so much lush green flora, large leafy trees and lovely manicured gardens.

The weather improved and we drove on highways, up hills, down mountains, through quaint small towns, past the shore, above the trees, through the mountains, over bridges in the rain and the sunshine, in the city, in traffic, on the turnpike, on state roads, on paved roads and brick roads, through puddles, over potholes and dirt roads.

I drove from Boston to Cape Cod to Plymouth to Boston to Springfield to Salem and Boston again.  Another reason I would recommend driving a Chevrolet Tahoe on your next road trip is how fuel efficient it is.  I drove to a new town every single day and barely had to stop for gas.  On extended trips on the highway I was able to use the adaptive cruise control which allowed me to set the speed and distance.   I enjoy driving with the sunroof open to let the sun shine on me and to gaze at the stars at night.  I have wonderful memories of my family oohing and awing at the site of a clear starry night.  It was an amazing feeling.  It was humbling and made me feel connected to the universe.

The Chevrolet Tahoe has many features to keep you comfortable on your next road trip.  It’s one of the most comfortable cars I’ve ever driven.  Everything can be adjusted to your liking.  The seats are big and soft and have both cooling and heating, a feature I discovered while driving the 2014 Chevrolet Impala on a road trip from South Florida to New Orleans, Louisiana.   The entertainment system kept us entertained on particularly long drives or if when we were stuck in traffic.  XM Radio has a channel for every taste.  The rear seat entertainment center even comes with headphones.

 I value experiences more than material things.  I prefer driving while vacationing because it makes me feel connected to the places I visit and the people around me.   I can stop if I see something curious or take a photo of an amazing view.  I get to hang out and crack jokes with friends, family and new acquaintances.  I get to hear stories and tips from the locals.  I’ve been welcomed into many places on this trip.  I’ve explored, discovered and grown.  I get to re live them each time I edit a photo or write a new paragraph.

What are some of your wonderful vacation memories of your family road trips?
