Scootering is a wonderful outdoor activity for both kids and adults during the summer months. Scooters are easy to pack into the car — unlike bikes which typically require a bike rack or some fancy maneuvering to fit them in the back of the car. Bring your scooter to a playgroup to ride with friends or to the grandparents’ to use on their long, smooth driveway! Take a family scoot to a local store or ice cream shop for a treat. The possibilities are endless!
Here is a roundup of our favorite scooters! Keep reading to figure out which scooter is best for each member of your family!
