The Summer Drive Hack

roadtrip

Have you heard the great news?

(This is something I would have loved when my kids were little.)

Netflix has teamed up with Rogers to give you free “Download Zones” on some major routes for every long weekend this summer – until September 1st!

This is a great idea to kill time on the long drives up or if any ‘overtired’ incidents occur on the way back, stop off for a quick download on the way home. If your kids are anything like mine were, after a day of rabble rousing with the cousins or at an awesome park, they’d either fall asleep right away or stay up to fight and complain. This way, they can wind down while watching some of their favourite shows in a calm relaxing fashion.

How awesome is that? 

You can find the Download Zones for these 5 remaining Ontario holiday weekends here:

Friday, June 30
Bass Pro Shop at Vaughn Mills – 1 Bass Pro Mills Drive
Saturday, July 1 and Sunday, July 2
Gravenhurst – 101 Centennial Drive
Friday, August 4
Bass Pro Shop at Vaughn Mills – 1 Bass Pro Mills Drive
Saturday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6
Huntsville – 37 Main St. E
Friday September 1st
Bass Pro Shop at Vaughn Mills – 1 Bass Pro Mills Drive

These are great shows for littles: 
Peppa Pig, Octonauts, Dora the Explorer, PAW Patrol, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Beat Bugs, Trollhunters, My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic, Annie and Dinotrux.

Our teen favourites include:
Riverdale, the Santa Clarita Diet, and the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. 

Remember you can still download to your device before you leave as well. I hope you have many safe and fun memory making weekends this summer – with pleasant drives home.
