3 Reasons to keep this Road Atlas in your car

IMG_20171211_1028079

The best selling Road Atlas in Canada is back and here are three reasons you should have it in your car.

1.  Maps help you plan. 

 GPS is great for great for “point A to point B” but what about what’s in between? Stop looking at a small segment of the road and see the big picture. It’s not about one or the other, GPS and maps are great together, because you get the now and become aware of all the awesome around you.

2.  Maps never lose service.

It happens, the signal is lost or it just keeps insisting you to drive into that lake. A road atlas is a wonderful second opinion that will also keep you safe and hopefully dry.

3.  Maps can’t run out of battery power.

It always happens when you need it the most doesn’t it? Losing battery power has an amazing sense of occasion. A Road Atlas can keep you from the eternity it takes for your phone to charge.

A road trip is a special time of happiness and excitement, please take us along with you to improve your experience, it’s what we do.

MapArt Day Trip #4: Hilton Falls

hiltonfalls

Hilton Falls is located on Page 32, Grid 3-E (Campbellville, ON) in the 2018 MapArt Ontario Back Road Atlas. A pleasantly short drive NW of Toronto, Hilton Fall’s offers a wonderful bit of exercise combined with a truly tactile experience with nature.

The charming 4km hike back and forth to the falls we’d mark  as a “moderate” challenge, so every member of the family can enjoy it. The 10m high  falls  are the true highlight, as you can explore the remains of the mill and even go behind this wonder. (expect to get very wet if you do!).

Visiting Hilton Falls left us happy, our minds refreshed but our bodies very tired. Well worth a visit this summer.

The cost of entry was agreeable, for two adults and two children it was $23.

Tips- Go early, this is a popular destination that really packs up by early afternoon. Wear comfortable footwear and bring water. Allow at least two hours for your experience.
