Burlington's downtown is a vibrant mix of residential neighbourhoods, shops, services and restaurants in a beautiful waterfront setting. It's a historic centre of trade and an area rich in history, with ties to the past but an eye to the future. The core is situated near a major mall, hospital, highway connection, GO train station, surrounded by many parks and of course the beautiful waterfront trail.
Burlington Downtown features 400 businesses providing the best in shopping, world class dining and professional services. Let loose and hang out with the friends as you walk along the picturesque waterfront of Lake Ontario, or go shopping at the Mapleview Mall (an upscale two-story shopping mall), eat and drink at the many restaurants, pubs, bistros. In the summer, you're close to all the action: the Sounds of Music, the Ribfest, etc! You'll never be bored living downtown, that's for sure.
