Everyone at our Mazda dealership in Hartford, CT loves to drive. We love to drive during the first snowfall of the year as much as we love being behind the wheel when the leaves start to turn color in the fall and the flowers start dotting the landscape in the spring. What we enjoy the most, however, is hosting the Mazda Summer Drive Sales Event during the summer and helping people find the Mazda cars they’re going to take on their next road trip.

Whether you’re interested in a 2016 Mazda CX-5 or another one of our new Mazda cars, we have a vehicle you’ll enjoy driving in any season, including this summer. Now is a great time to buy or lease a new Mazda vehicle because it’s not just time for our Mazda Summer Drive Sales Event, it’s the perfect time to enjoy one of the nation’s best road trips.

While some of the best road trips start and end on the west coast or in the Midwest, others are located much closer to your Connecticut home. There’s a 57 mile stretch of U.S. Route 9 in New York, for instance, that is particularly appealing during the warmer months of the year. Starting in Poughkeepsie, NY and heading north toward Valatie, NY, you can enjoy the gilded estates that line the route as well as the fresh produce and organic goods that are sold at the farmers markets that border the road at various stops.

If you’re willing to travel further north, you can enjoy a drive on Acadia All American Road in Maine. The 27 mile Park Loop Road is the crown jewel of this ride and it brings you through the ridges of Bar Harbor and the loops of Sand Beach and Otter Cliff to Jordan Pond. When you reach the Jordan Pond House, you’ll have the chance to enjoy homemade ice cream and popovers. You can even climb Cadillac Mountain which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and has a peak that measures 1,532 feet.

If you’re getting ready to head out for a road trip, bring your vehicle to Liberty Mazda before you leave home. We’ll make sure your automobile is ready for the rigors of the open road. Give us a call or stop by our Mazda dealership on West Service Road to learn more about the Mazda Summer Drive Sales Event and schedule your next service appointment today.
