Halloween is a time when kids and adults alike dress up as their favorite heroes, villains, and everything in between. Combining your love of cars and Halloween is easy! Just check out a few of these car-themed Halloween costume ideas recommended by us here at Nissan of Silsbee.
Used Car Salesman
If there’s one thing every driver dreads, it’s running into a pushy used car salesman when they’re searching for their next vehicle. A comb-over wig, plaid suit, and rubber cigar combine to create the unmistakable, stereotypical used car salesman. Bonus points if you try to sell someone a used car as well!
Race Car Driver
Kids and adults can share their fascination with cars through speed. The race car driver costume isn’t exactly uncommon, but it never gets old at the same time. Kids can unleash their creative side as most race car driver costumes feature a variety of colors and patterns.
Is there anything more car-themed than a car itself? Dressing up as a car usually entails a cardboard box and a little creativity. Adding fake wheels will make your costume even more iconic. For those who really want to grab the attention of passersby, consider dressing up as a famous car, like the Mystery Machine.
From all of us at Nissan of Silsbee, happy Halloween!
The fall season is finally upon us, which means it’s time to get out there and start enjoying the cooler weather. We here at Nissan of Silsbee have a few ways to celebrate fall that will make this season one to remember.
Communities throughout the nation hold an Oktoberfest celebration every fall. The German festival tends to feature large crowds, plenty of beer and sausages, and a merry old time! Check around to see if there’s a local Oktoberfest in your area and make plans to attend with friends and family.
Take a Scenic Drive
There’s nothing quite like checking out the fall colors with a scenic drive in the Nissan Altima. Various shades of red, orange, and yellow create a work of art that only nature can produce. Plan a scenic drive through an area full of trees to check out the festive seasonal colors!
Visit a Farmers’ Market
A local farmers’ market is a great place to get fresh produce and explore new things. It also presents the opportunity to meet new people and make more friends. Many markets offer seasonal produce and recipes to go along with them. But get there quickly! Most local farmers’ markets close once fall end and winter arrives in full force.

It’s finally that time of year, when you plan a week away from life’s usual routines and spend it with family and friends. Whether you live in the Lone Star State or not, it’s worth noting that there are plenty of great options for spring break in Texas. Here are some of our favorites.
Dinosaur Valley State Park
Dinosaur fans – and even just those who can’t get enough of Jurassic Park – will be into a visit to this state park in Glen Rose. Look for dinosaur tracks left behind along Paluxy River, a reminder of prehistoric times. Beautiful nature and fresh air make this park a spring break winner.
Six Flags Over Texas
Who doesn’t like the thrill of a coaster or the view from a high ride? Six Flags Over Texas offers everything, from gentle thrills to heart-pumping rides not for the faint of heart. This Arlington, Texas amusement park is a great location for a short spring break getaway.
About two hours away from Nissan of Silsbee, Galveston Island is one of our favorite places to catch some sun. Take in the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico while you stroll along the boardwalk, catch a concert, or have a drink at a local bar. This beach is definitely down to party, making it perfect for college students looking for a break. However, with plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, Galveston is great for families too.

Big Thicket National Preserve
This scenic nature preserve is home to 86,000 acres of undisturbed wilderness. Go camping, canoeing, hunting, bird watching, horseback riding, and much more in the pristine woodlands, where you’re sure to find thousands of species of indigenous wildlife.
Are you in the mood for a spooky adventure? Legends surrounding Hardin County claim that it is home to a ghost that wanders the countryside looking for his murdered bride-to-be, or a hunter that got lost in the Big Thicket and vanished. Drive down to Ghost Road to see if you can spot the mysterious ghost light.
Ice House Museum
Though once used as an “ice house,” a building that housed and delivered ice to local businesses and families, the business was eventually shut down and turned into a museum that now hosts local cultural events and an art gallery.
Over a century old, this historic home is notable because of its stunning and unique architecture. If you go in for a tour, you can experience this lovely old home, the antique artifacts inside, and the community-maintained gardens outside.
