Fun Things to Do in Rockwall, Texas

Rockwall might be named after the geological rock walls that were discovered when the city was first founded, but there is a lot more to do than just look at rocks. Here are the top five fun things to do in Rockwall.

  1. Downtown. Over the past few years, downtown Rockwall has been reinvigorated with new shops, restaurants, and fun. Go on Saturday mornings for the farmer’s market.
  2. Horseback Riding. If you love horses, be sure to spend a day at Chisholm Trail Rides. Here, you can learn the basics of riding and go on some beautiful trail rides.
  3. Harbor Rockwall. This is one of the newest entertainment destinations in the area. Spend an evening enjoying a delicious meal, take in some shopping, snap a few pictures of the lighthouse, and then take a stroll along Lake Ray Hubbard.
  4. Blase Family Farm. In the fall, this family farm features hayrides, pumpkins, a petting zoo, and more. Return in the summer for fresh blueberry picking.
  5. Boat Ride. There is no better way to experience Lake Ray Hubbard than with a relaxing boat ride. Try the Big D Cats, Sail with Scott, Harbor Lights Cruises, or other companies.

Which of these activities are you planning to do? At Randall Noe Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram, we love spending a relaxing evening in Rockwall.

Stay Prepared for the Worst with a Roadside Emergency Kit

Driving is always dangerous, which is just one reason you should have a well-stocked emergency kit at all times. In addition to the basics like a spare tire, jack, and jumper cables, there are a few things every car should have. For example, does your car have a fire extinguisher? A first aid kit? Randall Noe CDJR has compiled a list of things to include in your roadside emergency kit.

You never know when disaster is going to strike. The DMV suggests including a first aid kit in your emergency kit, one that has Band Aids, gauze, and antiseptic. Aspirin can thin blood if someone’s having a heart attack, but it works equally well on headaches. Tweezers can help with splinters, and cotton balls have many purposes.

Carry fresh water and non-perishable food, especially if you’re driving into remote regions. Most people can go weeks without food, but you can die in mere days without enough water—especially in Texas heat.

Finally, bring a tarp and duct tape. You’d be surprised how often a waterproof surface will come in handy, and some tarps can double as blankets. With duct tape, the possibilities are endless. You may even be able to perform basic repairs with a simple roll of high-quality tape.

Other important things to include are a flashlight, baby wipes, and a multipurpose tool. Above all else, restock your kit regularly to make sure you’re always prepared for the worst.

Before you get stranded, be sure to schedule regular service appointments with Randall Noe CDJR! You can even schedule service online today.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Launch Date Could Be Soon

Jeep Wrangler Release Update

The successor to the 2017 Jeep Wrangler may be launched soon

New Wrangler: What Do We Know?

Jeep has been keeping news about the new Wrangler under wraps because it knows how much we all love a good surprise. What we do know to a reasonable degree is that the next generation of the iconic nameplate will feature new lineup additions such as a pickup truck model, as well as a more lightweight build and even a diesel engine option. However, beyond that, we don’t know much about it, or even what it will look like. Sources seem to indicate, however, that we may not have as long to wait for the new Jeep Wrangler’s launch as we had originally anticipated.

When Will News Be Released?

Rumors are swirling that instead of having production begin on the Wrangler in mid-November and debuting it at the Los Angeles Auto Show that same month, Jeep could start building the Wrangler in as soon as two weeks, with the first examples rolling off the production line at early as October 30th. This would mean that the Wrangler could make its public debut well before L.A., perhaps even as early as the start of October. A bit like Christmas in autumn for Jeep lovers!

Whatever the window in which the Jeep Wrangler launch takes place, we here at Randall Noe CDJR will have our eyes and ears open in anticipation for a new generation of off-road goodness. Stay tuned, and we will let you know what to expect and when you can drive it.
