Day Tripping

Year: 2017

Venture outside of downtown Toronto with your host Apryl Munro, and visit your neighbouring cities to find beautiful beaches, ski hills, try fly boarding, and even go horseback riding. See how much fun you can just within a few hours of your own city.

Episodes

Episode 1

Beach life is a lot closer to the city than you realize. Face your fears, and go skydiving in Wasaga Beach with your host Apryl Munro. But don’t worry, you’ll be in good hands with your experienced instructors. After take a walk around the area and enjoy the breath taking views and shops along the beach.

Episode 2

Although Blue Mountain is often known for its amazing ski hills, a visit in the summer is both breathtaking and adventurous. Ride a roller coaster atop the mountain. Hop on the paddle boats, the gondola ride, or explore the scenic caves. For the thrill seekers, ride your bicycle down the side of the mountain, go tree top walking, or zip lining!

Episode 3

Go back in time on a coach train with Apryl to the 1920s. Ride the rails in the countryside through South Simcoe, Tottenham, Beeton Creek, and explore history. Or would you prefer something a bit scarier? Try ghost hunting in Penetanguishene, exploring the old naval base in Discovery Harbour.

Episode 4

There’s a lot more to do in Muskoka than just sleeping on the docks. Get an adrenaline rush in the water - try waterskiing, hydrofoil sit-down waterski, or fly boarding. Or stay on dry land and drive an exotic car, like a Lamborghini Roadster or the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and find out what it’s like to be in a car with a 1000 HP.

Episode 5

Apryl visits the rolling hills in King City. Stroll through Dog Tales, a very unique animal rescue with happy dogs that have their own bedrooms, and lots of space outside to run around and play. Next take a romantic horseback ride in Waubaushene with Highview Farms.

Episode 6

Apryl is buzzing with excitement in Cookstown at Dickey Bee Honey, learning the art of beekeeping and collecting pure unpasteurized honey. Your next mission should you choose to accept it, is to find a hidden sword in Castle Village Midland, a very elaborate dungeon escape room in Midland.

Episode 7

Feel like you’re missing out on all of the fun winter festivities? Join your host Apryl Munro at Winterfest in Barrie as she meets with ice sculptors to see how they make their beautiful sculptures. Can Apryl make one just as gorgeous? Join in on the lumberjack games, and taste some delicious fresh maple toffee. Then head over to Snow Valley and get a taste of adventure with extreme snow tubing.

Episode 8

Apryl tries a classic winter sport, cross country skiing at Hardwood Ski and Bike. Do you miss bike riding in the winter? Why not try fat biking? Take a seat on a bicycle with very big tires that can easily get through the snow. Next, Apryl visits Shaw’s Maple Syrup in Barrie to find out how they harvest their maple syrup from tree to table.
