We’ve been trying to get away for a week or two all summer long and for one reason or another, (all really boring however all legit) we haven’t quite been able to. This weekend we took off to the cottage for some quiet time, but with the end of the summer looming we found ourselves a wee bit restless to hit the road and rustle up a little adventure. We decided to day trip and headed north to Tobermory.
Now we are a real road tripping crew. We love packing up the car and heading anywhere, enjoying a long drive, chilling with some tunes and shooting the breeze while we explore a little bit of the countryside. Day tripping is a great way to get a little bit of that vacation vibe while
sticking around town. Try it next time you’ve got a free day on the weekend. It actually feels like you’ve managed to get away with very little effort and there are a ton of little towns and cities within close proximity to TO.
We put in some road-tripping tunes (thanks to Wal-mart we found the perfect $5 3-CD version of all time country classics) and took off. We packed some towels, snacks and cold drinks and we were off to see what the day would bring. I have been coming up here to the Collingwood/Owen Sound area for decades now and have never ventured as far as Tobermory. It is adorable! Packed with things to do, it has water outfitters on every corner and is jammed with restaurants and art galleries. It feels a little like a laid back version of Provincetown, relaxed and friendly to boot. Check it out next time your up for a little road adventure, or check out some of the other nearby towns, there is a little bit of fun for everyone.
