Roadtripping to the Jersey Shore with the Buick Enclave


By Nancy Johnson, Editor — 


Recently we traveled to Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, New Jersey – check out my review here. Many thanks to Buick, which lent us the fabulous Enclave for our trip.



I’ll admit I do love my minivan, but it was great to drive an SUV. The Enclave has three rows, so you can set up them up in several ways; with the two seats in the second row up and the third row down, with the second and third rows up or with all the seats down to get more storage.


When we left on our trip, my kids practically ran towards the Enclave, ready for our fun weekend to begin (and they loved the beautiful cherry red color).



We have a family of 5, so I liked that I could put my toddler and 6 year old in the middle row and my oldest child in the last row. I folded down 1/2 of the seat in the third row (you can fold down the seat that can sit two or sit one), so Ben could sit in the back. While it may be too tight for adults to sit back in the third row, kids will find it just fine.

We got to Wildwood at night, grateful for our fun weekend to begin.


We had a wonderful time at Wildwood, playing on the beach and spending time on the boardwalk.






Since it is a looong walk down the boardwalk to get to the second and third piers, it may be easier to drive there and park at one of the lots right next to the boardwalk entrance.


It cost us $7, but was well worth it.




The Enclave was terrific for our family. We liked the roominess, the dvd system really made my kids happy, and I loved the satellite radio. While I do adore my minivan, this 3 row SUV is seriously awesome and a worthy contender if you have 2 kids or more.
