Daytripping Magazine & RV Times ~ two travel mags that welcome submissions from beginners

Tomorrow, June 21, marks the first day of summer, so I thought it would be a good time to post a couple places you can send your travel articles.  These two are non-paying markets.  You can find a few more travel markets here.

Daytripping Magazine
2684 Lakeshore Rd, Bright's Grove, Ontario

To put it in the most boring possible way, Daytripping is a travel guide. To be a bit more specific, it’s a free, bi-monthly paper that promotes a great number of the most unique towns, events, and shops in Southern Ontario. Daytripping doesn’t have a reporter. Our writes are our readers. Most of them are from southern Ontario, but a few are from as far away as British Columbia and Nova Scotia.

Daytripping itself is fun...both as a job and as something to do on your day off.  Most people don’t have time for all the extended holidays they would like to take, but there is so much to do in your own backyard that daytrips can become the best getaways of all. Many of our readers keep a copy of Daytripping in their car. It’s a fact that 72% of the tourism in southwestern Ontario comes from within Ontario. It is people travelling from Brantford to Port Dover for the day, or Londoners getting out of the city and driving off to Tillsonburg or Grand Bend. They’re looking for a new road to go down, a new shop to explore and an easy, affordable adventure.
