Bob Smith Toyota knows that CA drivers are always up for a great summer adventure. With road tripping season right around the corner, grab your sunglasses and smart phone and hit the highway for these fun getaways!

San Francisco

The City by the Bay is the ideal summer road trips destination. Packed full of historic sites, restaurants dishing out delicious local fare, and unique boutiques, you’re bound to leave your heart here. Be sure to hire a bike to explore Chinatown, pop across to historic Alcatraz, revel in the tourist trap that is Fisherman’s Wharf, and head to the top of Nob Hill for cocktails at The Mark.

Pacific Coast Highway

If your Toyota car is a convertible, be sure to put the top down while driving down the PCH. There are numerous highlights along this highway, including adorable seaside towns and gorgeous wilderness areas. Stop by Big Sur and Julia Pfeffer Burns State Park for a picnic.

Joshua Tree National Park

Get out of the city and into nature by escaping to this serene desert sanctuary. Hike, star-gaze, and take in the amazing flora and fauna.

Death Valley National Park

Check out the largest national park in the contiguous U.S. when you visit Death Valley. It’s the hottest and driest place in North America, so don’t forget to stock up on plenty of water!

Summer is the ideal time to explore your state. Be sure to first get your Toyota car inspected at our service center to ensure it’s road-ready!
