Almost everyone in America is guilty of getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s natural for people to immerse themselves in their lives and jobs, but too often this disconnects us from the natural world around us.
Celebrate National Great Outdoors Month
Summer is the perfect time to take a break from your busy city life and celebrate National Great Outdoors Month with the help from your friends at Central Valley Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, and luckily California is home to some of the most beautiful natural sceneries in America. Here are three of our favorite locations near Modesto to reconnect with nature.
1) Lake Tahoe
Lake Tahoe, located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range on the border of California and Nevada is home to, perhaps, the clearest water in the country. With a deepest point of 1,645 feet, Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in America and a true national treasure.
The lake is bordered by a gorgeous mountain range and offers various activities such as hiking the Rubicon trail and mountain biking the Flume trail, along with boating, camping, disc golf, and much more. If you’re feeling bogged down by city life and need an escape, Lake Tahoe offers an abundance of natural adventures to simplify your life.
Whether you like relaxing on the water, hiking through the mountains, or simply escaping society for a little while, Lake Tahoe has you covered. With only a three hour travel time from Modesto, CA, this destination is perfect for a week-long vacation.
2) Yosemite National Park
Another national treasure housed by the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Yosemite National Park, is an incredible California treasure offering water and land activities that are sure to excite. Weekend rafting trips, mountainous rock climbing, endless hiking trails, and exciting zip line courses will remind you of the value of enjoying the simple things in life.
National Great Outdoors month is the perfect time to make the short two hour drive to one of America’s greatest national parks for all of your outdoor adventures. Hop in your brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee to help your drive through the mountains go as smoothly as possible, and enjoy being disconnected from society and immersed in natural beauty.
3) Woodward Reservoir
If you’re looking for a destination perfect for a shorter stay or even just closer to Modesto, Woodward Reservoir Regional Park is a convenient 30 minute drive from Modesto city. This park is perfect for the family and offers a variety of water based activities such as boating, fishing, water skiing, and overnight camping.
Woodward reservoir is a local treasure and a perfect weekend getaway for central Californians, so pack up the truck with all of the camping essentials and enjoy a relaxing weekend in the great outdoors with family and friends.
