The Lakeside Playground

Rest, relaxation, and recreation are waiting for you in beautiful Burlington, a tranquil city located on the edge of Lake Ontario between Toronto and Niagara Falls. Your vacation begins in the quaint downtown, where boutiques, cafes, and spas abound.

Let the kids burn off some energy in the waterfront playground, or relax and build sandcastles at Beachway Park. If you’re hungry, head to the unique Discovery Landing, designed by Baird Sampson Neuert. The glass building houses Spencer’s at the Waterfront, offering exquisite local fare and a stunning patio overlooking the lake.

Experience the great outdoors with a hike of the scenic Bruce Trail, rock climbing at Mount Nemo Conservation Area, or enjoy one of the nine Burlington golf courses –– ten if you count the year-round indoor golf experience at FarAway Greens!

The whole family will love summertime in Burlington. Whether you are taking in the annual Sound of Music Festival, Canada’s largest free music festival, the Children’s Festival on the waterfront, or Burlington Ribfest, you will find plenty to celebrate in Burlington.
