6 Tips for Fall Fun from Your DeLand & Orange City Car Wash

6 Tips for Fall Fun from Your DeLand & Orange City Car Wash

Fall is finally here—and for Central Florida, the season brings crisp weather, outdoor fun and endless roads to explore! Of course, for all the fall festivities ahead, you’ll want your car to be as clean and comfortable as possible. That’s where Sporty’s comes in! As your go-to Orange City and DeLand car wash, we can help spruce up your ride for a fun season ahead.

Take a look below as we share a few of our favorite fall activities, as well as some tips for how to keep your car looking its best all the while.

Go leaf-peeping, Florida-style

Sure, the Sunshine State might not be renowned for its fall foliage—after all, we’re one of the only places where you can enjoy shorts-and-sandals weather pretty much all year long. But for those interested in autumnal color, our state is not entirely devoid of sites to admire. During later fall, you can hop into your car and take a family road trip to Torreya State Park near Tallahassee, one of the most beautiful places to spot fall foliage in a charming forest setting. Even closer to home, you may be able to find fall colors around some of your favorite Central Florida Lakes, too.

Pick pumpkins

While some of our favorite fall activities may look a little different this year, pumpkin patches remain an attractive option as you can safely spread out and find the best pumpkin with your family! Be sure to clear out your trunk or cargo space so there’s room for everyone to bring home a pumpkin they love.

Visit a local drive-in theater

Looking for a great venue to watch your favorite spooky film or family movie? There are several great drive-in theater options located around Central Florida. Check in with your local venue to see if there are any upcoming Halloween events that will help you get into the fall spirit from the comfort of your own car!

Bring Fido along for the fun

If you have a furry friend, chances are he will enjoy the cool weather as much as you! Plan for more frequent visits to the dog park or nearest pooch-friendly beach by laying down a towel for your pet on your seat, and keeping another towel handy for quick wiping whenever needed (tip: Our Sporty’s towel exchange program lets you purchase a towel for $3 and return it on every visit for a complimentary clean towel!). You can even swing by Sporty’s to use our self-service vacuum following your car wash, which will help prevent dog hair from accumulating in your car.

Plan your perfect parking spot

On a practical level, no one likes fall leaves and seeds dirtying up their car’s windshield, windows and exterior. If you are able to, consider parking your car in a parking spot or area of your driveway less susceptible to debris from above. Regular cleaning and even quick wipe-downs with a Sporty’s towel can also help prevent this natural debris from leaving long-lasting stains or spots on your car.

Enjoy effortless, cost-effective cleans

From fall adventures, to the tail-end of lovebug season, to everyday wear from falling leaves and seeds, your car can use some TLC at this time of year! Fortunately, Sporty’s is here to help with three convenient locations and our season passes, which let you wash your car as often as you’d like, up to once a day, for a low monthly price. (All your fall outings just got a lot more carefree, knowing that you can stop by on the way home for an effortless clean.)

We hope these ideas help you enjoy fall fun with your family! Even if your fall calendar is filled to the brim with activities like pumpkin picking, beach cruising and beyond, you can count on a clean car after every adventure with the help of our monthly membership program.
