Are you looking for a drive on a Sunday afternoon?  Check out the Barn Quilt project.  From the Barn Quilt project website: Barn quilt trails use colourful, decorative murals based on quilt block designs as markers on barns or other agricultural buildings to signal historical points of interest. Travellers follow a printed map, available along the route and in local tourism offices or from the tour’s web site. They do not actually stop at the barns during the tour.”

Check out their website: http://www.barnquilttrails.ca/  We suggest that you print out a copy of your intended route at home, as the guide books are becoming scarce.  As well, new quilts are added around the counties, and will not be in the book.
