Football Games

 

What would fall be without football? Texas is home to many famous stadiums, so pick a city, spend the weekend exploring downtown, and then finish off the weekend with a Sunday night football game.

 

Texas Renaissance Festival

 

The renaissance festival, regardless of state, is usually associated with October, but in Texas the ren fest in Houston is so big it lasts all through November, too. Don’t miss the nightly fireworks, hundreds of vendors, and thousands of character actors in the park.

 

Lost Maples

 

The Lost Maples State Natural Area is home to a variety of beautiful, brilliant foliage. Consider taking the family camping for a weekend to see the stunning colors of fall up close.

 

Go Bird-Watching

 

Texas is home to a number of different bird species all across the state, and during this time of year, many birds are migrating to the southern hemisphere. It’s the perfect time for a short road trip across the state.

As the weather gets cooler with winter around the corner, Nehls Chevrolet realizes that the wellbeing of a driver’s car is important more than ever before.

Whether roads are snow-covered or wet from rain and temperatures are chilly or fairly mild, a driver is accountable for taking care of his or her car. Here are 5 things you need to be aware of:

1. Fear deer. Fall is a busy time for deer breeding. Be cautious and drive slowly. Deer can travel in packs and cause damage to your car if you hit one.

2. Be on high alert. Once daylight savings time ends, visibility on the roads decreases. Pay special attention to what’s in front of you at all times.

3. Keep your tires inflated and treaded. Weather and temperature changes will enlarge and shrink your tires, which will cause them to lose air.

4. Beware of leaves. Fall is a time when leaves are everywhere other than tree branches. Wet leaves on the road can make for slippery driving conditions. Drive carefully and avoid parking near leaf piles. Doing so could lead to heated circumstances if a fire starts from your car’s catalytic converter.

5. Expect sun glare. The time change will bring much sun to morning and late afternoon driving. Always carry an extra pair of sunglasses in your car and use visors.
