About

“Let’s get out and do something today”

A motivational sentiment that prompts us with thoughts of getting out of the house and away from our usual routine for a while.

Spur of the moment.

No big plans needed.

No overnight packing.

No strenuous activities.

Explore what’s already in your backyard. Go on a day trip like this one, the abandoned Newmarket Ghost Canal. People come from distant places to experience what we have and all to often take for granted. Galleries, museums, nature parks, wooded trails, country fairs, historic sites, and special events.

“Show me something that may not in the popular promotional brochures”

Every once in a while, I’ll create an unconventional day trip like this one at a condominium construction site about Tower Cranes. Or this one about bird watching over several days right from home.

I’m in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, the starting point to all my day trip destinations. Richmond Hill is 25 Km north from Toronto’s CN Tower and Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays. All my destinations are within an hour and sometimes a little more from my home. My outings can be free, a donation requested and sometimes an admission fee is required.

Thanks, I appreciate your stopping in and hope you’ve been motivated to visit one of my day trip destinations. If these don’t work for you, perhaps you’ve been inspired to explore your own neighbourhood. Bet you’ll be surprised at what you didn’t know you didn’t know.
