Discover Your Neighbourhood
Day trip in an Hour is about
exploring what’s already in your backyard. People come from distant places to experience what we have and all to often take for granted. Galleries, museums, nature parks, wooded trails, county fairs, historic sites, and special events.
“Let’s get out and do something today”
Spur of the moment.
No big plans needed.
No overnight packing.
No strenuous activities.
“Something that may not in the popular promotional brochures”
Go on a day trip like this one, the abandoned Newmarket Ghost Canal. Or visit a condominium construction site and watch Tower Cranes at work for an unconventional day trip. You needn’t go far, your own backyard is great for a day of bird watching.
Imagine the possibilities of exploring your own neighbourhood. Bet you’ll be surprised at what you didn’t know, you didn’t know.
