Driving in and around Richmond Hill
Richmond Hill lies 21 miles north of Toronto Airport, which is around a 30-minute drive. You can take a bus from the airport, then get any of the rental cars in Richmond Hill to explore neighboring cities and towns. Want to see the largest Inukshuk (a rock sculpture made by Inuits and other Arctic tribes) in the world? Drive 20 miles north to Schomberg and visit its site along Road 27 and marvel at the scale of the sculpture. The Guiness record-holder rock assembly stands at 36 feet and weighs over 80 tons and is made of 11 granite slabs taken from the Grenville Mountains in the Canadian Shield. Take lots of photos and expect it to be a conversation piece when you get back home. The trip back to the Richmond Hill only takes around 30 minutes, and with Richmond Hill car rentals, you can enjoy a quiet drive without the hurry.
