Picnic Hacks #NationalPicnicDay.jpg

Saturday, April 23, is National Picnic Day. So, we thought it might be helpful if we share some picnicking hacks with you, keeping the 2017 Land Cruiser in Coon Rapids, MN in mind.

We selected the Land Cruiser because it’s spacious enough for everything you might want to bring on a picnic and still has room for multiple guests. Because when it comes to friends and picnics, more is merrier!

See our Land Cruiser Inventory.

What Food Should I Bring?

One of the things we love about the 2017 Land Cruiser in Coon Rapids, Minnesota is that it has enough space so you can bring almost anything you want to your picnic, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to. Packing a ton of food and equipment can be exhausting, so here’s what you REALLY need to bring.

  • Sandwiches - Sandwiches are easy and don’t take up much space. You can hold them together in a ziploc baggie.
  • Water - Staying hydrated is important, but if you want something different to drink, freeze bottles of water beforehand (to keep your food cool) and then it will eventually melt for when you need it later. 
  • Salad or Chips- Chips are super easy, but sometimes they can get crushed. A healthier option is salad. Use plastic to-go cups to store your chopped salad and house the plastic fork in the lid. 
  • Dessert- Pies are delicious, but if you don’t want to deal with a whole pie, mini pies in a cupcake pan are easily transportable and are the perfect serving size.

Easy Setup

If you have a cooler or picnic basket to hold all your plates, utensils and cups, that’s great! If not, the 2017 Land Cruiser in MN has plenty of space for everything you need. 

We’re big fans of blankets, but sometimes they get dirty when they’re directly on the ground. Our hack? 
  • Bring a shower curtain and place underneath your blanket. 
  • Pillows are also a great thing to bring along. Bringing pillows will allow you to hang out in a number of positions comfortably. 
Entertainment and Cleanup
  • If you don’t want to use your 2017 Land Cruiser in Coon Rapids for music, bring a glass and place your phone in it for an instant speaker!
  • And don’t forget to bring trash bags for easy cleanup! 
And, of course, don’t forget to bring sunscreen and bug spray for protection.
