Welcome back! Make sure to check out some of the fun activities in the surrounding Kingston area, and let Student CarShare help you get there.
With car sharing, getting outside and exploring is easier than ever. Student Car Share is a car sharing service that enables students 18+ with a G2 license to rent cars by the hour or day – starting at $6 an hour with gas and insurance included!
Here are 12 fun things you can do with a Student CarShare vehicle:
- Visit Wolfe Island. Whether going in the Fall for the Autumn Corn Maze or during the Summer to the beach at Big Sandy Bay, having a car makes getting to and exploring Wolfe Island much more enjoyable!
- Go to a movie. Since the movie theatre downtown closed, getting to a movie can be difficult and expensive. With Student Car Share, you can grab a car and a couple of friends and catch the latest movies at Cineplex Gardiners Road.
- Shopping at the Cataraqui Centre. Getting bored of the shops on Princess? The Cataraqui Centre has lots of stores to explore. Plus, on a cold day, it’s a great way to get there, wander around and not have to be outside.
- Putt in Blast! Want to relive your childhood? Putt In Blast is a fun place where you can go play laser tag and mini golf. Bonus, there a great sushi place next door! puttnblast.com
- Road trip! Whether you are going home for the weekend or going to visit a few friends at another school, train tickets for a group of people can get expensive. Grab a Student CarShare car and you can cut cost and make some great memories along the way.
- Grocery shopping. Nobody likes carrying home heavy groceries and cabbing to and from stores can get expensive. Grabbing a car for an hour makes grocery shopping much easier. Plus, if you go on Loblaws on Tuesday, your student discount could cover the cost of the car. What do you have to lose?
- Go to the Drive In Theatre. In the mood for some old-school fun? When the weather is nice, head over to the Kingston Drive In Theatre. They also have go-carting, mini-putt and more! http://www.funworldpark.com/drive-in.php
