Twelve awesome adventures into the U.S. that are only a day's drive away
Out of love for pointless road trips, we present to you our doable dozen. We took 12 Canadian cities and paired them up with 12 nifty car-centric destinations that are a day's drive away. Then you can park your exhausted carcass in a Red Roof Inn for the night, visit either a super cheesy or genuinely wonderful (our list has some of each) attraction, scope out some of the local colour, have a nice dinner, crash another night and haul butt back to Canada, all in a three-day span.
Do them over a long weekend (or skip out of work for a day after a regular weekend), these are trips you make with your best mates, your toothbrush, a song-laden stereo, a camera, a gas card and not much else. Then, forever after, you get to say, "Hey, remember that time we drove to Salt Lake City for the weekend?" and crack up, even though you've said it 50 times before. Good times. We're helping you make some memories here, people.

A 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake sold for $1.3 million. Do you think classic cars were made better than modern rides?

- Yes, the quality of cars from the 1960s and '70s is the best
- No, modern technology makes cars better today
- Maybe, it's hard to say since most Canadians get a new car every 10 years
