The highlight of this area is definitely Burlington’s bustling downtown. A bustling area filled with small shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, it’s retained many of its historic buildings and small-town feel. The location is only steps away from the waterfront, which, aside from its visual appeal, offers great walking and bike paths as well as open parkland – host of the famous Sound of Music festival that draws thousands from the region. Affluent, mature neighbourhoods and condos surround the downtown area, making this a very walkable location – appealing to everyone from the young professional to the empty-nesters. Plus, it’s only steps away from the Burlington GO station, where regular trains are headed to Union Station; some in as little as 40 minutes.
