For more information on this and other Vegas car shows, check in with your Chapman Las Vegas dealerships.

Chapman Dodge Hosts Show on Fourth

Chapman Dodge, one of the premier Chapman Las Vegas dealerships, is sponsoring a killer car show at 3175 E. Sahara Ave. on July Fourth. You’ll get free barbecue and beverages as well as the opportunity to look at classic cars of all years, makes and models.

SEMA Appreciation Day July 20

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) hosts one of the biggest car shows in the world each year in Las Vegas. On July 20, SEMA will gather together some of the best collector cars in Vegas in front of City Hall as the group pays homage to the role collectors and restorers of old vehicles play in the history of America. The U.S. Senate has declared the second Friday of each July as “Collector Car Appreciation Day.”

Summer Wraps Up With Henderson Show

One of the biggest shows of the year happens in Henderson from September 22-25. The Happenings Super Run Classic Car Show features all years, makes and models of show cars, trucks, motorcycles and unique vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Participants get a T-shirt, ball cap and commemorative plaque for their dash. The event features multiple street runs, cash and prize drawings, a roaring engines competition and live music. Check in with any of the Chapman Las Vegas dealerships for more info on this and other summer car shows.


Summer Temps Prove Hard on Cooling Systems

Although summer temperatures may make some people stay at home in the air conditioning, there are plenty of day trips available to explore the world away from the Strip. Before you head out, it’s important to get your car checked at one of the Chapman Las Vegas service centers. You don’t want a blown hose or leaky radiator to leave you stranded alongside the road in triple degree temps. Go for an oil change and ask them to do a complete checkup including all fluid levels, belts and hoses, battery level and windshield wipers. A few dollars spent before your trip can help ward off disaster.

Zion National Park a Popular Trip

It’s only about 2.5 hours to southern Utah and the dynamic scenery at Zion National Park. Steep red cliffs climb to the sky in this popular tourist spot. Follow the scenic Zion Canyon Drive until you reach the Virgin River, which in turn leads you to the hanging gardens and waterfalls at Emerald Pools. If you don’t mind getting your feet wet, head over to the Zion Narrows for a wading hike.

Lake Mead Provides Fun in the Sun

It’s only a couple of hours from Las Vegas to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, one of the largest man made lakes on earth. Rent a boat or jet ski to get out on the lake, or just enjoy the beach and picnic facilities. Canoeing and kayaking are both popular sports in this National Park which also offers some of the best fishing in the land.

Red Rock Canyon Only 30 Minutes Away

Head out early and you can take advantage of some of the hiking opportunities at Red Rock Canyon, just a 30 minute drive from Las Vegas. This outdoor destination features a large set of red rock formations (hence the name), along with sandstone peaks and walls that climb to 3,000 feet. There is a one-way road that provides access to the hiking trailheads. Be prepared for company, as this is a very popular bicycle route. Red Rock Canyon is also a popular four-wheel drive trail that challenges locals. Make sure you get your four-wheeler serviced at a Chapman Las Vegas service center before heading out into the 100 degree heat.

Hoover Dam Draws Thousands of Visitors

Probably the most popular day trip from Las Vegas is the 35-mile drive to Hoover Dam. This miracle of engineering is 726 feet tall and contains 4.3 million cubic yards of concrete. You’ll learn plenty of interesting facts about construction of the Dam when you take the tour.
