Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

A fabulous guide for anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

Day Trips Around Toronto is the essential guidebook for urban dwellers looking to explore the many attractions that lie beyond the city's borders. The book offers intrepid day-trippers more than 50 destinations with activities ranging from hiking, biking and skiing to fall leaf-gazing, theater watching and wine sampling.

Designed for both adults and children, the guide covers an area roughly 90 minutes by car in all directions from Yonge Street and Highway 401, reaching to Peterborough, Collingwood, Stratford and the Niagara Peninsula.

The book is divided into four regions -- East, West, North and South -- and readers can easily link up two or more destinations on the same trip. It also includes:

  • Hints for side trips near main destinations
  • Detailed directions for reaching harder-to-find spots
  • Friendly, descriptive text to show why the daytrips are worth taking and what visitors can see and do.

Day Trips Around Toronto is richly illustrated with overview maps and dozens of the author's photographs, which give readers an advance peek at the adventures that await and entice them to head out of the city to enjoy some of Ontario's many attractions.
