    It’s actually very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I just use web for that purpose, and obtain the newest news.

    What a terrible site design

    This is your list for unusual day trips? More like a list of the most boring places around who havnt seen a visitor in a ages lol except for the 3 amazing trips like the African Lions Safari, some mystery Cave adventures somewhere undisclosed and hot air balloon rides. I also agree that this site design is confusing and cluttered. The descriptions for the slide show sites are weak at best and in some cases cut off mid sentence. Plus I was disappointed there was no additional info, location info or any links to find out about the sites, i.e. the Caves posting. What a wierd list and half ass attempt to throw a list up. I could of done a list in 5mins that would have been better than this.

  4. Studio124.ca is Singhampton,Ontario’s fascinating sculpture park.the art studio and forest ,with its eclectic
    collection of sculpture installations and whimsical works are set in 3 acres of lush forest.
    Sculptor Marion Bartlett and woodworker Rick Bino have created an entertaining yet peaceful enclave to visit on the way to Collingwood, or just an art lover’s destination.
    90minutes north of the GTA off Hwy 124 near Brewster’s lake.
    Open weekends from 10 until 5 or by appointment .
