    Cobourg is small enough town where you can either walk to place to place, take a bus, or even ride your bike through. Walking may take a bit longer but you still get to the place in the same day. The bus is really cheap and i would take advantage of it so if i were you i would do it. Bikes are good way around and a good way of getting into shape.
