From Forever Young WNY:
The word daycation may be relatively new, but the concept isn’t. It dates back to the early days of railway excursions, when Victorians using Day Tripper tickets would travel to a scenic spot for a day out. This way of travelling is somewhat of a lost art, but it’s a time efficient and less expensive way to make the most of our short summers.
What would your ideal daycation look like? A first-rate theater performance followed by a decadent chocolate creation? Perhaps a forested hike to a stunning waterfall? What about the thrill of big city sports game? Wine tasting? Farmers market? With so many choices waiting over the border (and such a favorable exchange rate), there’s no time like the present to take advantage of what Ontario has to offer this summer.
