Let’s get out and do something today
I’m in Richmond Hill, Ontario, part of York Region and the starting point to all my destinations. Richmond Hill is 25 Km from Toronto’s CN Tower and Rogers Centre. All my destinations are within an hour and sometimes a little more from my home. The outings can be free, a donation requested and sometimes an admission fee is required.
Spur of the moment.
No strenuous activities
No big plans needed.
No overnight packing.
Welcome to the Greater Golden Horseshoe, a geographical area spanning approximately 10400 square kilometers in size, the most populous and industrialized part of Ontario with a population of over 9 million people puts you at the center of a vast amount of possibilities for day trips.

Get out and explore what’s already in your backyard. People come from far and away to enjoy what we have and all to often take for granted. Galleries, museums, nature parks, wooded trails, country fairs, historic sites.
