Every Friday, my weekly Daytripper column on CBC Radio One’s Here and Now has been providing listeners with inspiration for transit accessible day trips exploring the geographies, histories and cultures of the Greater Toronto Area. The series began in summer 2018 with a series of suggestions for GTA daytrips, and has continued in the winter of 2019 with tips for getting out and making the best of the region’s ice, snow, and saunas. 

Check out this summary of 5 trips from the CBC, enjoy a selection of the segments, and keep your ears peeled on the radiowaves for more!
