Question Any option for towing or tow hooks?

While driving to the bay in Florida, i got stuck in the sand. I tried while driving to turn my traction control off, but that required two menus and an IQ test before i got stuck. A man in a minivan had to tow me out, but i noticed that there were no towing access places anywhere around the car, whatsoever. I had to rap the line around the subframe in the rear. is there any places that i missed and/ or aftermarket???

Not sure if this pic will work, but at the rear, there are tear-drop shaped holes in the exhaust hanger brackets that you can hook to.
