Burlington Lakeshore features many beautiful mansions, standing on the exquisite lakefront area! Being one of the first roads, Lakeshore is a historic area, as the roads were used by the English settlers travelling between Hamilton and Toronto. It's the prime spot right by the lake. Known for very large, custom homes overlooking the lake, this definitely is one the prestigious areas of Burlington. It stretches from Burloak Road all along Lakeshore Road till downtown Burlington. The area is clean and quiet, as there are no commercial stores/plazas, except the Food Basics plaza on Lakeshore Rd and Hampton Heath Rd.
There are many parks along the Lakeshore, for example Burloak Waterfront Park, Sioux Lookout Park, Paletta Lakefront Park, Spencer Smith Park etc. Downtown area is boasting with small shops, restaurants, stores, pubs etc. In the recent years the area has seen a lot of tear-down and new developments, including the downtown core, where new condos are being built right by the lighthouse pier. For those who have their own yachts and boats, having the luxury of your dock is awesome!
