15 Adventures To Go On In The Maritimes If You And Your Friends Are Secretly Grandmas

If you and your friends are the kinds of people that like to wake up and go to bed early, you may secretly be a Grandma trapped in the body of a 20-something. You may be all about staying in with a good book in your pj's on a Friday night, but sometimes you find yourself craving an adventure.

You may not need to go clubbing or do something wild and crazy to go on an adventure, but sometimes you gotta just get out of the house and do something fun! Below is a list of adventures for you and your fellow millennial elder friends to try out together.
