Affordable Vacation Destinations

Summer is finally here and if you haven’t planned a vacation getaway, it’s never too late to start. While many assume any vacation is costly, there are plenty of affordable vacations anyone can take. Here are some of the best affordable vacation destinations in the United States from us here at Cronic Nissan!

  • Nashville, Tennessee – Home to some of the lowest hotel prices in the South, Nashville is the perfect getaway for down-to-earth adventurers. While some of the attractions are predictably country, others, like Hillsboro Village, are incredibly modern. Complete with the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville is incredibly accessible to those on a budget.
  • New Orleans, Louisiana – For those with more room in their budget, New Orleans is the perfect spot for a cultural experience. Boasting rock ‘n’ roll, Jazz, blues, and other types of music in a city with a European-style design, there’s something for everyone. As long as you avoid Mardi Gras, New Orleans is surprisingly affordable!
  • Yellowstone National Park – Spread across three states, Yellowstone National Park was founded over a century ago. Home to hot springs, meadows, geysers, forests, peaks, lakes, and more, this a place everyone should visit at least once in their life.

2017 Nissan Maxima Gets Standard Apple CarPlay

In-car smartphone connectivity is the way of the future as automakers continue to prove with innovative technology to make driving safer and phone use more hands-free. Nissan is no different and, with the one-year-old redesigned Maxima to work with, there’s a lot to expect. The 2017 Nissan Maxima is on sale now and with five available trims and quite a few new standard features.

Starting at $32,560, the Nissan Maxima S comes with Apple CarPlay as a standard feature. Working with NissanConnect and the Maxima’s eight-inch touchscreen, that increases a driver’s control while on the road without taking their eyes off the wheel.

As you’d expect, all Maxima trims get the technology as a standard feature. At the top of the line is the Maxima Platinum with a starting price just under $40,000. All models come stocked with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque.

Now stocked with Apple CarPlay, the Nissan Maxima, the brand’s flagship sedan, may have gained the upper hand on competitors. Combined with the powerful yet efficient engine, this full-size, four-door sports car could have the edge it needs take down its rivals.

We here at Cronic Nissan are happy to see the Maxima staying at the forefront of connectivity!
