Here Comes the Sun!

It’s time to kick back, hit the road, and bask in a glorious Saskatchewan summer

Many of us can’t wait to enjoy the wonderful warmth and sunlit scenery of a Saskatchewan summer. Our province has so much to offer – from picturesque parks to thousands of lakes with a variety of recreational opportunities, including camping, swimming, waterskiing, fishing, hiking, golfing, canoeing, kayaking, and more. A summer road trip sounds like just the thing we need to unwind, relax, and revel in the great outdoors.

While cruising on your summer road trips, why not take rest breaks and pit stops along the way at some of the province’s unique attractions and shops? You’ll also be supporting our local economy. Turn to our On the Road column on page 51 to meet some of Saskatchewan’s innovative makers and artisans.

Road trip season is also a good time to remind you not to leave home without your CAA membership card or the CAA App on your smartphone. Make sure your membership is up-to-date so you’ll be covered for roadside assistance when you’re out and about, from tows to unlocking vehicles and battery boosts.

Speaking of road trips, you can pick up a CAA Roadside Safety Kit at any of our 11 CAA Stores conveniently located in nine Saskatchewan communities. While you’re there, stock up on some automotive and travel accessories. Our professional staff can also help with any of your membership benefits or travel needs.

And who better to help with summer road trip safety than CAA? Our road trip guide on page 37 is loaded with tips, advice, practical information, and even a highway-worthy playlist.

Let’s not forget about driver and road safety. Our current campaign, #BeforeYouDrive, focuses on distracted driving – because we know there are many distractions right inside our vehicle. Even our fancy in-vehicle technology can cause a distraction. Before you step on the gas, be sure to check your phone, set the GPS and tend to passengers because a safe ride is a distraction-free ride. Learn more on page 10.

Thank you for being a Member of the CAA Saskatchewan family. Best wishes for a safe and happy summer.
