2016 Chevy Volt

The Newly Redesigned Chevrolet Volt Won’t Be Available Until Spring

Want the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt?  No on blames you: it’s sleek, highly innovative, and one of the most fuel-efficient cars on the market. And you might just be able to get it this year, but, unfortunately, that’s not likely. There’s a good chance you’re going to have to wait until next spring.

The newly redesigned Chevrolet Volt is seeing a limited release in specific states, such as New Jersey and Oregon, until it receives its wide release in spring of 2016. This might be due to the decrease in sales of Volts over the past year; between January and August of 2015, Chevrolet sold only 8,315 Volts, which was a 37% decrease compared to sales over the same time period in 2014.

The Volt is a well-known and highly respected electric or hybrid car in a time when eco-friendly vehicles are king. The newly redesigned Chevrolet Volt plans to bring sales back to their rightful place at the top.

The new Chevrolet Volt is supposed to be one of the furthest-ranging electric vehicles of all time. It’s going to come equipped with some of the most intuitive technology you can find on four wheels. Maybe now’s a good time to take that road trip west to Oregon…

What’s There to Do in Texas During the Fall?

Most people, when they think of autumn in America, think of quaint New England towns tucked into hillsides, or the brisk American North covered for miles and miles with enormous trees. Both are beautiful, of course, but if you’re just thinking of those two regions, you’re missing something pretty spectacular right here down in Texas.

Not only is Texas during the fall a beautiful, colorful place, but there’s more to do in the state to celebrate the season than almost anywhere else in the country.

First, check out the State Fair of Texas. Running for 24 days, from September 25th to October 18th, it’s one of the longest and biggest state fairs in the nation. You can witness the rodeo spectaculars or take part in something a little more laid back, like the Fall Garden Program. Add all this to the beyond-delicious food up for grabs at every turn, and you’re bound to have a great time.

Or, for something a little more natural, head on over to the Lost Maples State Park. One of the most fiery locations for foliage in Texas during the fall, it has plenty to see, with lovely river views and millions of trees. (You can even get an online, regularly updated color change report.) Whether you’re in for picnicking, hiking, or camping, there’s something for you at Lost Maples.

Maybe you need something spooky to do in honor of this Halloween? In that case, consider visiting Mineral Wells. Famed for its magic, healing waters, it’s also the home of one of the most haunted hotels in America (which also happens to be one of the most relaxing).

Whatever you’re looking to do in Texas during the fall, there are plenty of amazing getaways all across the state, each one offering something new and wonderful to discover.
