If you’re looking for a picturesque city, Burlington claims prime location along the shores of Lake Ontario with the bonus of having the Niagara Escarpment to the north. It has a big city vibe while maintaining a sense of community. At its heart is the downtown, complete with boutique shops, farmers’ markets, restaurants, entertainment and office space. The waterfront attracts visitors to its parks, festivals and beaches. Homebuyers enjoy a wide selection of house styles, ranging from century homes, new subdivisions and condos to lakefront estates. Older bungalows on large lots are now being developed into custom homes. It’s the perfect city for families who appreciate access to numerous sports amenities, including an abundance of ice arenas, pools, golf courses and community centres. Burlington also offers more than 580 hectares of parkland within the city and is a stone’s throw away from the Bruce Trail and Niagara Escarpment.
